FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, CA, February 24th, 2011: Bombay Pictures announced the completion of its 1-hour documentary “Don’t tell me I can’t!” based on the worldwide creative challenge solving competition Destination Imagination. The film follows 5 teams, ages 10 to 18, as they progressed from the Regionals, to the State to the Global tournaments in Knoxville TN in May 2010. Writer, Director Vandana or Dana Tilak, herself a former DI mom was ecstatic when 5 of the 9 teams the production started with, made it to Globals.
The filming crew captured the teams’ practices, performances, and their personal stories as well as interviews with challenge masters, appraisers, family members and DI staff and volunteers, bringing forward their own solution to a challenge they had when they began.. How do you compress such a huge event that happens over 10 months into a 1 hour story that everyone can understand, relate with it’s characters and would like to be a part of in some way. Incidentally, the 5 teams were of different age groups and they were all working on different challenges.
The film is being aggressively marketed via social networks like facebook and twitter, world television markets in Cannes and Belgium to distributors and networks.
Game shows, co-productions and a feature film based on DI are also currently in development.
