USC Students and Wyoma Films Launch 'Bill Murray Appreciation Day' to Attract Elusive Actor For Their Thesis Film and Help Amy Poehler   By PRWEB

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2013

To attract the attention of the elusive actor Bill Murray, USC School of Cinematic Arts graduate students Christopher Guerrero and William Goldstein, along with San Francisco Bay Area Producer Colin Reeves-Fortney, have put out a call to action to everyone around the world to participate in their newly founded holiday, fittingly deemed Bill Murray Appreciation Day or BMAD. The purpose of the holiday is to celebrate Mr. Murrays transcendental career, and to, hopefully, gain the actor's attention and cast him as a lead in the film, which will shoot in Santa Cruz California in the late Spring. The holiday will be held on February 2nd Groundhog Day - a reference to Bill Murrays classic film. The inaugural event is being held in Los Angeles by the group, starting at 7:30 p.m. They are asking interested fans to meet up outside the Vista Theater on the Sunset Strip dressed as their favorite Bill Murray character. From there they will be leading the newly annual BMAD Bar Crawl, starting at the Good Luck Bar located next-door to the Vista Theater.' All of the information for the event, as well as updates on where the bar crawl will move next, can be found on the events Facebook page and the official website. If you are not in Los Angeles, don't fret, the team urges everyone to hold an event in their home town.

Talking with the group after a recent LA Times interview, Christopher Guerrero, the director of the upcoming thesis film: Ive written one of the main roles in my thesis film for Bill Murray. Its one of my biggest dreams to work with Mr. Murray on a film project. Weve exhausted all options trying to get a hold of him: phone, e-mail, mind control. Hes just too powerful and too elusive!

Mr. Guerrero describes the upcoming project: The film is a comedy about MIKE, a punk rock student and I.T. specialist at UC Santa Cruz, who finds himself on a mission to reclaim the Chancellor's laptop from a group of anarchists bent on stopping "The Military Industrial Complex." His only help is a rag tag group of weirdos: Susan, his gothic-gamer roommate, Ryan, an overweight hipster ecstasy dealer, and Vanessa, a tough-as-nails Roller Derby Girl.
