Hardline Productions Releases Coercion Trailer | July 17th, 2012
Because we are a small festival, we encourage the performance companies to help us out with promotion and help spread the word that Neanderthal is happening and how it will be awesome! Sadly, we don't have seven million dollars to promote ourselves. All we have is ourselves, our excitement, and the companies we invite to come and play. Sometimes the companies are crazy insane with making sure the public knows about what they are doing and how they will be performing at the Neanderthal Arts Festival. And then... we get the ultra-enthusiastic companies.
Check out the trailer and get a taste for what you might see on stage at the festival. As people keep saying in the trailer: "It is looking sexy!" Ned the Neanderthal thinks so too.
