I am surprised to see how many people have been watching the Banking Bad video for pure entertainment and have no involvement or experience with loan modifications and, as a director, that feels great.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2012
When Director De Veau Dunn created the Banking Bad video series for a brand new website called http://www.BankingBad.com, he had no idea his first video release, “Bank of America wants you to die… before they modify,” would reach well over 11, 000 views in its first week of release on YouTube. Dunn Created the video with San Diego based production company Endi Entertainment. “It has been amazing,” says Dunn, “Banking Bad started the new channel with zero subscribers, but a few underground sources latched on to the video very quickly it seems.”
The first episode of the Banking Bad Documentary series was filmed to spotlight Bank of America’s continued request for the death certificate of a living borrower in order to complete a home loan modification. “We were hoping that the video did well and was entertaining, but we had know idea so many people were having problems getting their home loan modifications until we started getting emails. I believe this may be why people have gravitated to the “Bank of America Wants You to Die…” video so quickly. We have received so many emails from people who are having negative experiences with Bank of America loan modifications, as well as many other banks. These people have been thanking the people over at Banking Bad as well as my crew for posting the first Banking Bad video,” says Dunn.
This initial positive response has prompted the people at Banking Bad to create a Banking Bad Facebook page to go along with the Banking Bad Video experience. Banking Bad is inviting people to like the new page at https://www.facebook.com/BankingBad, as well as follow Banking Bad on twitter at https://twitter.com/#!/BankingBad, for video updates on the banking documentary.
Dunn added, “it was a real challenge to find humor in the morbid situation that Bank of America created by requesting a Death Certificate for a simple financial transition. I was able to craft a bit of humor in part one of the Bank of America documentary through a satirical scene I used at the end of the video. The majority of people that have reached out to us through email mentioned their enjoyment of that scene and how the video had similarities to their loan modification experience.” The first Banking Bad video is about 7 minutes in length and the satirical scene Dunn mentions is toward the end of part one. Filmmaker Nicholas George stars in the scene playing an undertaker. Dunn continues, “Oddly enough people have been writing in about how funny Nicholas was in that scene. Personally I believe it added a little levity to a very difficult situation, and I am surprised to see how many people have been watching the Banking Bad video for pure entertainment and have no involvement or experience with loan modifications.”
