Your calligraphy could be a movie star!
« on: January 09, 2016, 11:17:23 AM »
This is pretty cool!

Eduardo Munez Letter Project

If you send a letter and feel so inclined, share it with us, too!  :)
From the post:

Along with the funds we need to collect lots of amazing letters from around the world for use in the film as props. What we don't want is for all the mail in our film to be boring junk mail! We are looking for mail artists and snail mail lovers to get involved in our project by sending us letters which we can feature in our film! We need a LOT of them!

We are looking for letters, particularly drawn envelopes, mail art and plain envelopes - not postcards. Most importantly the letters must be addressed to Mr Eduardo Munez.
We will have to change the real addresses on the front to the 'fake' address of the character in the film so please leave the address section fairly clear of decoration.

In our film the letters to Mr Eduardo Munez do not get opened - so inside you can write whatever you like. You can use your imagination - who do you think Eduardo Munez is? What kind of mail would he receive?

Once shooting on the film is completed we will video the team opening all the letters we have received and having a look at their mysterious contents...! We'll provide everyone who contributes with a password protected video link to watch them all being opened. All letter writers will also receive special thanks in the credits too...

With each letter writer's permission - we will also publish them on our Facebook page and the blog of the project.

The address to send your mysterious mail to is:

Mr Eduardo Munez
272 Waterloo Street,
Newcastle upon Tyne,
NE1 4DJ
UNITED KINGDOM

Deadline: March 1, 2016
Please, be sure to write your sender details on the back of the envelope as the letters will not be opened until after the film is completed!

Feel free to spread the word!

Most intriguing!  Hmmm, sounds fun, a bit mysterious. Certainly a unique challenge.
Thank you for posting Erica.
I may try my hand on this.

Oh man, the synopsis says the writer got actual letters for someone named Eduardo Munez, and I can't help but wonder what was in those letters. I feel like the writer would have been able to at least glean why he was getting all that mail. Whether it was penpals, or letter exchanges, or what.

Anyone know how much postage we'd need to put on the envelope?
