    Default Stargate Movie Fan Campaign

    Ok, I have wanted to get this into motion for the longest time. Also I had a dream a few days ago (no joke) where the movies were greenlit.

    Seriously though, this has gone to long, the fans need to start acting. If the firefly fans didn't act up, Serenity wouldn't have been made. We need to start throwing ideas around that would convince MGM to make the movies. Also, we need to let MGM know there are still people who want this movie made.

    Also, please let's not be negative and say it will never work. Of course it probably won't be the deciding factor for MGM, but doing something about it is better than just waiting for news that the movies will or won't happen. Also the longer the time period, the less likely it will get made so we need to act now!!!

    EDIT: Updated March 6th.

    Ok guys here's the plan for now.

    What we can do Now:

    1. Spread the word. Tell all your online Stargate friends to raise awareness and raise our numbers.

    2. Sign up on facebook, youtube, twitter if you haven't already.

    FB: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?v=...d=331930378712

    YT: http://www.youtube.com/user/SGCampaigners

    Twitter: http://twitter.com/SGMovieCampaign

    3. Use banners and avatars on posts and website - if anyone is good at or enjoys desiging banners or posters, it would be great if you could start making some. Remember to keep the message short and sweet. Keep it positive, we want this campaign to have a positive energy about it.

    4. Go to other forums you visit and post - even if they are not scfi.

    5. If you can afford and want to go buy a SGA, or SG-1 DVD or buy one for a friend.

    6. Make tribute videos to SG-1 and Atlantis so that we can upload some stuff to out youtube channel. Be sure to include a message at the beginning or end of the video like, "Join the fight for the Green light", or "Please Green light the SG-1 and Atlantis movies".

    6. If you have any ideas you want to add to the campaign, please email us at [email protected]

    Updated June 17th

    Video Contest launched!

    I need help though, where should we start. Ideas?? Should we all write to the studio? I'm new at fan campaigns, but I'd rather fail and try then sit around and do nothing. Also please spread the word about this thread!!

    Thanks!!

    What about petitions. Isn't there some site for that. I remember reading a petition list with like 15,000 people that signed it when sga got canceled?

    Thanks for the positive bit jel. Really, can't we just do something? I mean we can hit up MGMs Twitter, write to them, create petitions, etc. Also we had some ideas circulating around joes blog but we never talked much about it, that's why I wanted to create this thread. I mean, instead of dooming it before we try, let's actually give it a shot!!!!!

    Well we can do more then petitions right. If we can identify who is in charge of green lighting it and target them instead of shooting in the dark at random MGM people?

    it doesn't matter. MGM is in a lot of trouble right now the last thing they want to worry about is two dvd movie.

    Also the DVD movies have proven to be a source of profit in the past, why would they worry besides the supposed downturn in the DVD market?

    i don't know 'what' to do, major davis. i don't have any history with doing campaigns either.

    my number one desire for any type of campaign is to mainly let the ptb (from stargate, mgm, any new company that might buy mgm) know we're *still* interested. that's got to be *good*, right?

    Hey major davis,

    I would recommend posting something on the SyFy forums. The fans there are mostly positive about SGA and SG-1 and have not turned their backs on those series. Not everyone is into SGU, and some people need to deal with that........ESPECIALLY TPTB. So a lot of folks are really hoping for these movies since SGU is not their cup of tea, and these movies would be their only SG fix.

    In fact, SyFY.com is running two DVD contests, one for a SGU DVD and the other for a SGA DVD. Guess which one is getting more positive buzz?

    BW and RCC have nothing to do with the SGA DVD. It is M&M's baby.

    Ok. Do you need to create an account for the syfy forums? I'm still keeping this one active for a while, but I was afraid I would be overwhelmed with no before I could try. Also is it at all possible that some syfy forumers could hang at gw for this project?

    Thanks!!!!

    Is there enough people on the syfy forum to even have a mini campaign. Also i don't blame the syfy dudes for saying it. Nobody even wants to try a campaign, everyone just says no and discourages it. Lol. No offense to those who said it though.

    Also do you personally think this could at least work a tiny bit, is it a good idea? Would you maybe help me get it started?

    Thanks!!

    I agree that it's gone on long enough and we want are movies (SGA Please) .
    Maybe make music videos showing are love for the show posting them everywhere or even make a channel on youtube so it's dedicated to bringing or trying to get a greenlight for the movies.

    Or make a "Green light the movies" protest thing like what they did for Carson Beckett and saving Atlantis. If there is one i'd would be there i'd love to do that. Join fellow fans trying to save our show.

    Other than that i'm afraid i'm not sure for ideas but you have my full support.
    GOODBYE GATEWORLD. BEEN FUN TAKE CARE ALL!!
