Crankey Makes Its Official Debut!

On both Monday, Sept. 9 and Tuesday, Sept. 10, the Crankey Village teaser was shown at SOL Acting Academy in Albuquerque and the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe! Everyone laughed at all the right spots and it was exhilarating to share and expand 'our village'! 

Here are some shots from both nights and a link to Alaina, who so beautifully spoke about CV and it's impact locally as well.

Hey-O, Crankey Villagers, 

The teaser premiere of Crankey Village, New Mexico was a success. What a turn out! 

Thank you to everyone for joining us in what was an informative talk-back amongst friends and film experts in a wonderful space Sol Acting Academy. We truly appreciate you all. 

We raised some funds by selling t-shirts, magnets and buttons, and even held a contest to see how many times Sylvia appeared on screen. Brian Morrison, the seller of the Mercedes used in the teaser, won with the correct answer of 16. This man truly deserved to win this prize. We have a long way to go, so please continue to donate to Crankey Village at our GoFundMe. By donating you can choose from lots of great swag: magnets, buttons, tees, posters, dinner at Crankey Village, a photo session with Sylvia and a GUEST STARRING ROLE WRITTEN EXPRESSLY FOR YOU.
