The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Electric Man Now Recruiting Volunteer ‘Champions’ in England

Electric Man: Volunteers Wanted...
Electric Man: Volunteers Wanted...
The team behind indie comic book movie Electric Man are looking for volunteer ‘Champions’ to help promote their English theatrical screening tour this autumn, and are offering free tickets and other perks to successful applicants.

As we've previously reported, Electric Man is an indie comedy about a pair of comic book shop owners in Edinburgh who stumble across a rare and valuable comic book, and try to keep it out of the hands of a cast of baddies who want to comic book for themselves.

The film was recently selected out of hundreds to headline at the San Diego Comic Con, where it attracted rave reviews.

The volunteer champions will be in post for three months, working with their local cinemas and comic book shops to help spread the word about the film in their local areas. In return, they are offered a unique insight into modern day film distribution that includes online downloads, screenings, and social networks, and a package of perks that includes free cinema tickets and Electric Man goodies. Champions will even be invited to introduce the film at their local screening.

“We’ve found that hard core comic book fans really love the film, and are great advocates for it," explains Electric Man Director and co-writer David Barras. "Bringing these fans into the heart of Team Electric is not just an effective way to create a buzz around the screenings – it’s also our way of acknowledging that huge role that they already play in the film.”

Volunteers are particularly sought in Nottingham, Sheffield, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Newcastle, London, Oxford and Cambridge, but fans of films, comedy and comics from elsewhere in England are encouraged to apply.
