Nick Nanton, Esq. and JW Dicks, Esq., personal branding experts and Co-Founders of Dicks and Nanton Branding Agency, will act as executive producers of upcoming inspiring documentary, “Jacob’s Turn.”
Orlando, Fla. – August 30, 2010 – Co-founders of the Dicks and Nanton Branding Agency and best-selling authors, Nick Nanton, Esq., Celebrity Agent and JW Dicks, Esq., America’s Foremost Expert on Personal Branding for Business Development, are announcing the development of a new heartwarming documentary, “Jacob’s Turn.” JW Dicks and Nick Nanton will act as executive producers of the film.
The documentary short film, Jacob’s Turn, is a mother’s story of Jacob Titus, her four-year-old boy from the small rural community of Floyds Knobs, Indiana – just outside of Louisville. Jacob loves to play T-ball, like thousands of kids across the country. Jacob also happens to have Down Syndrome. The film shows how Jacob’s “turn” at bat and on the field was a thrill for him, but more importantly, an event that transformed the hearts of everyone in his town.
Jacob’s mother wrote an article about his experience – and the way the town came to embrace his triumph. This article would soon stop the busy, constantly on-the-go Nick Nanton in his tracks, touch his heart and those of numerous high profile business people, and inspire him to executive produce the extraordinary documentary short film based on Patricia’s story.
Nanton is currently working with his extended network of marketing experts to create awareness of “Jacob’s Turn,” through a method of marketing that is usually applied to commercial ventures, but for the first time will be used to launch a charitable campaign – one which he will help benefit children not only with Down Syndrome but a wide variety of special needs. The goal of everyone with an emotional and financial investment in the film is to raise people’s awareness and generate charitable donations that will help these kids receive the assistance they need to lead the best lives they can.
At its heart, however, “Jacob’s Turn” is designed to inspire – to let special needs children and their parents know that the unique challenges they face need not limit the potential to achieve dreams, even small ones that start out on a baseball field in a place like Floyds Knobs.
The seven minute film is now in the hands of top video product and marketing experts, including Mike Koenigs of “Traffic Geyser” and “MainStreet Marketing” fame, and “Big Jason” Henderson, one of the top product launch specialists in the country. The campaign to share “Jacob’s Turn” with the world will begin with an email campaign to literally millions of people, and a push through YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media portals of teaser clips – which will ultimately lead to the unveiling of the whole seven-minute film.
Others contributing to the project are Nanton’s partners, JW Dicks & Lindsay Dicks, along with Mike Koenigs, Preston Ely, Baeth Davis, Mark Richter, Bill Gough, Richard Seppala, Dr. Scott Schumann, Darrin Mish and Jared Bonshire.
“Our hope is to help as many kids with special needs as possible,” Nanton says. “I’m optimistic because it was pure serendipity which led me to Jacob’s world in the first place and I feel that we’re all walking through a series of amazing doors that continue to open. Whether this film reaches the millions of people we hope it will reach and raises awareness and money on the scope we intend remains to be seen. It could be a huge success, or simply be known as a great story that touches the hearts of viewers, making them reflect for a moment. For now, we’re simply thrilled that the story turned out so well. It’s exciting to be able to make a difference and to share Jacob’s wonderful story.”
