Our heartfelt congratulations to Michael and his entire Ninn Worx team, and to Adam and Eve for bringing about the release of this movie. It’s been a long time coming, since those final days in 2008, when it looked like The Four would never be released.
The surprise in these nominations? Jay and I never imagined that the script we worked on with Michael would be nominated for any awards! And to also have a part in the marketing campaign that generated the Best Overall Marketing Campaign – Individual Project nomination from AVN was a double treat!
Thank you to the nominations committees of AVN and XBiz for recognizing the publicity campaign Black and Blue Media created and managed for this movie, and the individual work Jay and I did in support of The Four, including the ARG, Kronos480BC. We had a blast and a huge thank you to Mr. Ninn, for allowing us to be a part of his vision, and his team, for so many years.
