...by putting your or a businesses name in the end credits.
"She's almost ready!" After more than six months of hard work the Swordfish and Tunny Club's second major film production, 'The First Marlin - A Pioneering Game Fishing Documentary"' will make its cinematic release at the historic Sun Theatre in Yarraville on May 30th 2019. And you too can be part of this history making film should you choose by adding your name to the end credits.
To assist with the premiere screening and final production costs, we're looking for sponsors. In return, dependant on the level of sponsorship you commit to, we'll place your name or businesses name in the end credits of our documentary for all to see. Whether you are just looking to be part of history at a personal level, would like to promote a business (exposure is most likely to be global via social media and showings at other game fishing clubs here and around the world - including the IGFA) or simply love anything to do with fishing we'd love you to be associated with the the good work dedicated people have spent completing this film. You can read more about the film here.
There are a number of sponsorship packages on offer:
In the films end credits, packages will be listed in order of highest to lowest value and be titled by the name of package. In the case of the Blue and Black Marlin Packages, business names can be exchanged for personal names or families on request.
We are also happy to receive any donation in kind to support the project.
Please contact the club via our contact us page form found on the bottom of that webpage should you wish to sponsor or donate to the film or to learn more.
Our Club secretary will be in touch to formalise your sponsorship or donation and gain important details. Sponsorships will be available until Friday May 3rd 2019, so don't delay.
In addition to the acknowledgement in the film credits it's also planned that at the premiere screening sponsors who commit to the Black Marlin Sponsorship Package will be recognised by the MC and Club on the night.
If in anyway you value the history of game fishing and the pioneers of the sport here in Australia this is a fantastic opportunity to be recognised along side. It's anticipated the documentary will deliver a highly valuable piece of historic preservation and ensure all those interested in fishing history and film can watch and learn where and how game fishing originated here in Australia.
For those interested in purchasing a ticket to watch the premiere, these will be on sale in the next few weeks. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook group page for more information.
