This year some new variations on the posters for Christmas Ride were introduced. The one of Keri (played by Brittney Ham) driving was slightly favored over over a dramatic black and white version of her running in the results of a public poll. Other posters featuring additional cast members and may be seen on Facebook.

More Cast interviews, Musician profiles and news were posted to the Christmas Ride blog. Announcements about the movie continue to be posted in LINKEDIN groups and on other social media sites along with some online advertising, and submission of press releases to the print media.
Additionally, the Title Certification Report was received and a Blu ray Master Mix of the DVD prepared.

As producer, Art Promotions, celebrating its 25th anniversary of making and selling "Paintings, Prints, and [now] Productions," continues outreach to the community and distributors with considerations of booking cinemas to open film theatrically in Los Angeles, New York as well as Memphis. Due to limitations on funds available for this family friendly movie, Christmas Ride is tied to local railroad tracks at the moment. We need a Dudley Do Right of Studio Acquisition to appear and rescue us from the train of Exhaustion and put us in the Passenger seat through Cinema Rollout and Distribution. Any ideas on this subject, or interest in playing this moving feature film in your cinema, contact Karen Francis firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's the link to a one minute trailer about CHRISTMAS RIDE, an indie family feature film. That's Brittney Ham , the lead actress, in the photo to the left. The complete film mix is now in its fifth, and hopefully, final edit before its anticipated release in October, 2013. We're seeking theatrical distribution and/or a sale to television of this special dramatic holiday production with a theme of forgiveness.
