Petition to David Pollack, The Pollack Family Trust
Save Our Historic Fairfield Community Theatre #SaveOurCommunity
THE SHORT OF IT: The goal of this petition is to facilitate the sale of the Fairfield Community Theatre to a developer or group to provide a center for affordable entertainment, cultural development and community involvement, while contributing to the vibrancy and economic vitality of downtown Fairfield, Connecticut. We call upon the current owners—David Pollack and his family—to sell the property as soon as possible to allow for the theatre's timely redevelopment and restoration as a performing arts space. THE COMPLETE STORY: We all see it just sitting there, in a sad state of disrepair, our Fairfield Community Theatre. It makes us feel as if the town is also in sad shape—despite the vitality that surrounds it. And why not? When a downtown theatre closes and the theatre remains vacant, it is usually one of the first signs of downtown decay. Collectively, we are saddened that something has been lost here and we can’t help to feel the pain for our children, our community and the future of our town. We drive by and wish that somebody would do something to fix it. We wonder, "who owns it?” And, "why doesn’t the town do something about it?” The truth is that there have been many attempts to revitalize this property since its closing on September 8, 2011—nearly 5 1/2 years ago. In fact, there are many interested property developers and private groups today that would like to buy the property and invest several million dollars needed to revitalize it into a performing arts multifunctional space for events such as concerts, live theatre performances, comedy shows, etc. You don’t realize it, but it’s a big space; nearly 8,000 square feet seating over 700 people in its current configuration—giving it plenty of space for different uses. Imagine attending a children’s production on a Saturday afternoon or taking-in a comedy act; in a place that was constructed in 1900 and operated continuously at the center of the Fairfield community for nearly 100 years. We all want it fixed and we can envision how it will bring vitality and further economic development to our community—especially at a time when our property taxes continue to rise. In fact, its revitalization has very widespread community support. According to a 2013 survey conducted by students at Sacred Heart’s Jack F. Welch College of Business Graduate Program, 97% of the 1,901 respondents were aware of the theatre and they were overwhelmingly positive about a potential revitalization project. Many respondents wanted to help fund the effort or left comments of general support for the project. Others described their memories of the theatre and noted it as a historical landmark. There was a true affinity for the Fairfield Community Theatre and a strong desire to revitalize the space. Their research and analysis has proven that a multifunctional space is the best analysis and most popular choice from a financial perspective as well as from the community members. If we have nearly full community support and active interest by developers to revitalize the Fairfield Community Theatre, then what’s the problem, you ask? That is the very reason for this communication and petition—we need the current owners to agree to sell the property. The building is owned by The Pollack Family Trust—led by David Pollack, who is a long time Fairfield resident—and to date they have rebuffed all efforts to lease or sell the property despite repeated attempts by First Selectman Mike Tetreau, Mark Barnhart and the Fairfield Economic Development Commission to broker a deal between David Pollack and various developers over the years. David Pollack and the Pollack Family Trust were offered their asking price to lease the theater, but David and his family declined the offer—defying both logic and our collective community interest. And, its costing the Trust money every year to just sit on the property, which I estimate to be greater $500,000 in total lost rental income since the property closed in 2011—calculated using their own reported monthly lease payment for the property. The value to the community is clear and only David Pollack and his family are standing in the way of our community and our children having our Fairfield Community Theatre back. I call upon David and his siblings to have a heart and work with the Town of Fairfield toward the timely sale of the property. Who am I and why am I the ideal person to lead this groundswell of community support for change? I am an 11 year Fairfield resident with 2 children (who attend Sherman and Trinity Pre-school) and a new baby girl on the way later this summer. I was appointed to the town’s Economic Development Commission in late 2016 by the First Selectman and I promised that I would make it a priority to do something about this theatre—selfishly for my children and for the entire Fairfield community. Also, I am Vice President, Brand Strategy and Integrated Communications at Quinnipiac University, so I know something about branding, marketing and audience activation—especially how to leverage social media to drive change. Simply put, I love our town and like so many others in our community, I'm pained to see such an extraordinary opportunity wasting away. We can do this together. We know that David Pollack and his siblings are reasonable people, they just need to know how important it is to all of us. Please sign and leave a comment to tell David and his family how you feel. Or, if you know David and his siblings please tell them in person. Most of all, PLEASE distribute to everyone you know—through email, through social media and through conversation and with your full support. If you have questions or know of other opportunities to spread the word, I am happy to speak with you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Best, Keith Rhodes

Get the Vampire Academy Series Back Into Production!
I got into a slump where reading wasn't one of my priorities. With school taking the majority of my attention, and family and friends taking the rest, it seemed I had no time to do one of the things that brought me great joy in the past. When school let out for the Summer, however, I realized I had a seemingly limitless amount of free time and I could practically do anything I wanted. Obviously, I used the beginning of the Summer to binge-watch Netflix. As I was scrolling through the action/adventure movie category, however, I saw a familiar title, "Vampire Academy". I saw the movie when it came out in 2014, and I knew it was also a book, but I never had time to read it. I watched the movie again, and for some reason, I had a strong inclination to read the novel. I sought it out; It was so interesting that I couldn't put it down. I was hooked, and all the characters began to feel like old friends. As I neared the end of Frostbite, the second book in the series, I began to wonder when the sequel to Vampire Academy would begin production. After dead end after dead end, I came across an article from Movie Pilot, which alerted me of the failed Indiegogo fundraiser to meet the money requirement Preger Entertainment requested. My heart sank at the idea of never seeing Rose and Dimitri's love progress on the big screen, as well as never seeing Queen Lissa eventually take control of the Dhampir and Moroi world. After I shared the movie and the books with my friends, and I broke to them the news of the canceled sequel to Vampire Academy, I saw in their eyes that they were just as broken hearted as I was. We wanted to see Richelle Mead's meritorious work be turned into a film series, and we set out to find a way to help make it possible. A few ideas were tossed around, and we decided the best choice of action was to create a petition to show production companies how popular and deserving the Vampire Academy series is of being turned into movies. Although we do not have a solution to the problem, we have talked about Preger Entertainment giving the production rights of the film series to another company (such as Summit Entertainment) that is willing to produce all the movies. We also thought about having Netflix take hold of the movie series. More importantly, however, we ask that all the willing actors and production team members are kept; Danila Kozlovsky, Zoey Deutch, Dominic Sherwood, Lucy Fry, Cameron Monaghan, and all the other talented actors are what made Vampire Academy so wonderful. I, along with many fans of the novels, truly just want the series to be turned into movies. I love the books with all my heart, and I can honestly say the Vampire Academy Novels make one of the best YA series around. The Vampire Academy Series deserves to be produced and turned into a film series.

Petition to Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences
We want the Academy Awards to broadcast all 24 Oscars
On Monday, February 11th, it was announced that the Academy Award telecast would only broadcast 20 of the 24 awards; four of the awards would be given out during commercial breaks.The awards that will not be telecast are Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Make-Up and Best Live Action Short.This has been seen as a slap in the face to filmmakers all across the globe. Cinematography and editing in particular, are the essential steps to creating cinema. By the Academy's decision to not telecast these awards displays a disregard for for the very craft of which it celebrates.We strongly petition the Academy to find something else to broadcast during the commercial breaks. Although we hate to miss out on any of the show - the "in memoriam" segment, the montage(s), the clips highlight the sci-tech awards or the fodder among celebrities are not the quintessential elements of filmmaking - whereas bestowing the honors of cinematography and editing are. Before and during the broadcast, make-up artists will be hard at work prepping those who are going in front of the camera. For those who have directed short films, the process of making a smaller movie are the stepping stones to making movies.Since the failure of retaining your host this year - the removal of these awards adds insult to injury. We demand that ABC and The Academy find another way to shorten the broadcast.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ('90) Special Edition
One the finest movies I've seen as a child was the first live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie released in March 1990. Fans enjoyed it and it amazed me to see their favorite superheroes come to life on the big screen then watched it several times on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray. Since I saw it on DVD, I kinda went curious on the features it has and no others were made for it, so I'm making this petition to ask the company to make a special collector's edition of TMNT (90) with features fans like to see: Deleted/alternate/extended scenes Audio commentary with director Steve Barron Script to Screen Comparison TV spots Partners in Kryme "T-U-R-T-L-E Power" Music Video Hi Tek 3 f/ Ya Kid K "Spin That Wheel" Music Video Interviews with the cast & crew Behind the scenes footage Turtle Costume Tests Production Stills Remembering Jim Henson Lean, Green and On The Screen: A TMNT Retrospective featurette Misc. I know some fans like this movie better than the Michael Bay produced flicks, but who cares what they think? They're nice and this TMNT live-action flick from '90 is one of the best in my books. We all want that movie magic back in this decade, but we'll have to see it to believe it. From all I've learned, it does have elements from both the comics and the cartoon and I think it's very swell for fans like me or you no matter what they say or think around this decade. We all want to know how they've bring the Turtles to life in the first place whether in a special collector's edition, director's cut or extended cut of the movie anyway you'd like. Please sign this petition to get New Line/Warner Bros. to make this happen and we can't be disappointed as shellheads. Sign and share now, dudes and dudettes! #TMNT90

Stop the Death March Of Independent Film brought on by Amazon.com!
Recently, Amazon Prime pulled thousands of Independent Films from their streaming service, crippling the ability to generate income for many unfortunate Indie Filmmakers who poured their hearts and souls into their labor of love passion projects. This petition calls for them to immediately replace the movies they've taken away, without warning, from the service it's customers currently pay for, monthly. This was done without notice to the artists and we are being told it cannot be contested. The otherwise lucrative and diverse landscape for true indie film now looks as bleak as ever...
