Vanilla Fire: A "Real" Oscars Love Story looking for a Silver Lining
Military filmmakers had a TV wedding in the works for this Spring. They spent $400,000 on Until They Are Home, are out of money, and are looking for someone who can provide this couple with a silver lining to their crushed TV wedding dreams.
"Had we gotten the nomination, it would have changed everything,"
Vanilla Fire was so close to getting a nomination in two music categories but now "can't move forward" on planned TV wedding and hopes to sell Until They Are Home, the nostalgic story of the very first military motion picture combat photographers in the Pacific in WWII. Producer Tamara Henry's Dad William W. Henry (Bronze Star, Pentagon) is Father of the Bride. Vanilla Fire wants to tie the knot so they can carry on the legacy as military filmmakers like Norm Hatch who won an Oscar in 1944 and is the star of Until They Are Home.
Vanilla Fire needs someone to rescue them and adopt their TV wedding which as of right now "can't move forward."
Valentine's Day was particularly tragic as well, as the Vanilla Fire couple appeared on NBC The Today Show Kathie Lee and Hoda just as Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend. Oscar is on Vanilla Fire's movie poster for their next Olympic film starring Stephen Hawking and Blake Leeper in The Invincibles. https://www.facebook.com/
The Invincibles is the sequel to Vanilla Fire's very first film Unbeaten (2010 Oscar Shortlist) which was named Top 10 Olympic film by TIME magazine. Mark Burnett gave the filmmakers the money for a rough cut and they went to film the Beijing Paralympics. At the London Paralympics they met Blake Leeper and it has turned into a Jerry Maquire story of its own, as Steven is now Blake's representative. www.BlakeLeeper.com
The Vanilla Fire love story already has a "silver lining" of sorts: Silver Medalist Blake Leeper, America's fastest blade runner is set to be the Groom's Best Man. "Please help us save our TV wedding!"
