Scouts Honor

blah blah blah... click the picture for tickets!
With any luck, elbow grease, and gumption on my part, I will be bringing Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood to the Triad for its first screening in the Carolinas.

For those unfamiliar, Scouts Honor is a documentary that follows the Madison Scouts through a marching season, focusing on the stories of the of the young men playing in the corps. The film has been on my radar for some time now, and I got to meet Mac, the director, producer, and founder in Indianapolis when I made the trip for DCI championships.

It started with a tweet:

As any effective manager would tell you, to suggest is to volunteer:
And so it began. I exchanged a few DMs with the Scouts Honor folk, and after exploring a few options came to the conclusion: Why not me? I went ahead to Gathr Films and signed up to host a local screening. For those unfamiliar - I know I was - Gathr works like a crowdfunding site: When it hits critical mass the screening becomes a reality; if it doesn't, the screening doesn't happen and no one is charged. I've currently got just shy of seven weeks to beat the streets and get 80 people (a fitting number, as it were) to reserve their tickets for a screening in late July. They date was chosen by design because of its proximity to NightBEAT in Winston-Salem. The theater, located in High Point, is easily accessible from Winston and from my home in Greensboro.

If you're reasonable traveling distance from the Piedmont Triad, I invite you to the screening of Scouts Honor: Inside a Marching Brotherhood, taking place on Wednesday, July 27 at 7:30pm at the Palladium in High Point, NC.
