New York, NY (PRWEB) February 15, 2008
"Farewell Mr. President" is billed as the hottest multi-media mashup of 2008. The website portion of the project goes live this President's Day, February 18. http://www.farewellmrpresident.com is a website where anyone can upload their own farewell messages, and the project also incorporates a documentary film, merchandising and other media tie-ins.
The concept started with Greg Olliver, a film director. "I spent most of my life as a non-voter, and not caring at all about politics. Once discussions about politics and President Bush became a daily part of my surroundings, I felt obligated to create a way for anyone and everyone to at least say farewell to him." said Olliver.
"We saw the entire project as the prefect way to leverage social media and user generated content into a living, breathing brand" said Bernard Urban, whose company designed and built the site in only
three weeks time.
The three partners have plans to evolve the site beyond the election and insist this project will be around for years to come.
