My attempts to recruit people to audition for Save Me is going slow. (Go here to see a few of the responses.) I assume its one of two things
1. Not enough people are “seeing” this opportunity
2. People don’t trust me
The first has to do with what is called discoverability – meaning getting people aware of your project. Turns out simply posting it on the web isn’t enough. There’s a lot of competition for eyeballs and attention going on. And while there are probably 3 people who think I’m famous, there are 3 billion who know I’m not
The second has to do with clout. I have come to believe that it really isn’t who you know or who knows you. What really matters is who trusts you. Trust is a weird thing. You can’t force it, fake it or hire it. People only give it. Since the closest thing Christians can imagine when I say I want to do a show called Save Me is something that makes fun of Christians – their first response is to think of it as negative and me as sneaky.
Regardless I need more people to audition. So if you do trust me, send this link to people who are passionate about convincing others to join their religion.
