DOUBTERS? A passionate response from our #GetCoreyaStar CHAMPIONS ~~ 6 Degrees of Hell
We are aware that there will still be the doubters out there as regards to our motives here and whether this campaign is ‘True’ or ‘Real’ or not. Preferably our work so far would answer those questions, but if there remains anyone out there in doubt…..please take a moment to read this.
Harrison, very kindly, provided us with a response to one such comment made – on Corey Haim ImDb page (believe it or not!). The post in question is shown below. Needless to say we have posted this exact response back on IMDb too – in the vain hope the person in question re-visits to see it . Both the original post and Harrison’s response is shown word-for-word below, completely unedited.
IMDb Post: “Hate to be a party pooper, but were only a month away and the donation isn’t even at the quarter mark yet. What happened to all these bigwig fundraisers that were suppose to take place? And you keep saying Corey Feldman is involved. The only thing I’ve heard of him lately is about a 300 pound woman who won’t leave his house. And if the funds aren’t collected by the deadline, who does that money go to? This whole thing reminds me of Coreys funeral donations that never made it to the funeral home. I’d love to see Corey get a star. But it seems like were being given false information.”
Harrison, of 6 Degrees of Hell, Response:
This is in response to a posting that was blatant in its ignorance. While anyone is free to express their opinion, please your have facts straight. This is a lot to ask for these days for Internet comments and posts, but we do ask for people to try. Our response is posted within the body of the original comment for accuracy.
“Hate to be a party pooper, but were only a month away and the donation isn’t even at the quarter mark yet. What happened to all these bigwig fundraisers that were suppose to take place?”
As producer of Corey Feldman’s “6 Degrees of Hell” we can validate Feldman’s involvement. A simple look at his Twitter timeline will show his commitment to getting a star for Corey Haim. Additionally, our film has secured a Hollywood manager to sign the official Hollywood Walk of Fame application. Our film is working in tandem with Corey Haim’s mother, Judy in this effort. All of this is clearly documented.
As for “all these bigwig fundraisers” this person stated: There are two major events planned for the upcoming fall that will involved a screening of “6 Degrees of Hell.” Being that our film is a horror movie, we all felt it would be best to screen it closer to Halloween in Los Angeles. Before posting such ignorance to a public forum, a simple question posted to the multiple venues for a direct response instead of a public forum like IMDB would have yielded a quicker answer. Once again the temptation for people to “be seen” in a public forum over rides simple logic and most of all courtesy.
“And you keep saying Corey Feldman is involved. The only thing I’ve heard of him lately is about a 300 pound woman who won’t leave his house.”
Feldman recently held an online web chat session that was overtly advertised on Twitter in which a lot of people participated and got confirmation from the actor himself of his participation in the star cause for his former friend. Feldman has posted on the 6 Degrees of Hell Facebook his support for the star numerous times and a simple Tweet to him online will give anyone he responds to a confirmation from the star himself.
By citing his personal issue, shows ignorance and the usual laziness of those who expect their information handed to them without the requisite due diligence of a responsible “fan.” This person’s post also highlights the most basic and naive understanding of Hollywood as “big wig fundraiser” was never stated or promised. The hope for our screening benefit is that a number of high profile celebrities that are known to have been close to late actor will attend. They will certainly be invited, but never once was a “big wig” fundraiser stated in such a manner or implied or alluded to. If you’re going to post such negativity, get your facts straight.
“And if the funds aren’t collected by the deadline, who does that money go to? This whole thing reminds me of Corey’s funeral donations that never made it to the funeral home.”
If you read our Indiegogo home page it clearly states that any funds raised are RETURNED to the donors should the effort not make its goal. In setting this up, we knew ahead of time of concern of funds not only being raised but being used. Connecting our effort to a failed previous campaign is not only ignorant and incorrect, it smacks of libel and slander. Be careful of what you post in a public forum and have the decency to sign your full name to it when making such misinformed comments.
While we have no control over previous campaigns and no knowledge of how they were run, managed or mismanaged, this effort is being run through a legitimate film, with a celebrity and a manager all up front about the effort. To infer impropriety with monies collected, you should take into account Haim’s own mother’s public support for this effort. You are therefore trying to say that all of these people in a very public light may mishandle funds without any accountability. This is patently untrue and insulting.
“I’d love to see Corey get a star. But it seems like were being given false information.”
You are uniformed and posted outright incorrect accusations and statements without the least bit of understanding or research. Party pooper indeed. Should you have any educated questions about the campaign you can contact us at email@example.com and an informed and accurate response will be given. Should you also have any further issues, you are free to contact The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce at their website to also ask such questions as they are fully aware of this campaign.
No one is forced or compelled to donate a dime. Should the Indiegogo fail in its goal, not a single credit card, Pay Pal account is charged a penny. The money is lost. Period.
We understand the Internet is full of scam artists and liars. We are running a legitimate campaign and doing so very publicly with a public celebrity, a public motion picture and Corey Haim’s own mother. Between Twitter, the campaign’s various ways to contact and the film’s own email and active Twitter account, posting such “false information” on a public forum shows me more of someone searching for their 15 seconds of fame than accurate information. In the time it took to write such a statement or even the time it has now taken to respond to it, the aforementioned ways to confirm and dispel such concerns could have remedied the situation.
