the social campaign

(Los Angeles, CA) – When high school history teacher, Kevin Kash, decides to run for President of the United States, most of his family thinks it’s a big joke – but Facebook and Twitter have other things to say as Kash's unlikely campaign propels him to the head of the presidential sweepstakes, threatening the power bases of both political parties and resulting in a lively and unexpected campaign for president. That’s the premise of a new film scheduled to go into production this fall entitled "The Social Campaign" and planned for release during the real live American presidential campaign of 2016, producers have announced.

The unplanned and unlikely presidential race originates when Kash’s teenaged daughter creates him a Facebook page, announcing his presidential bid, making him an instant social media hit, receiving 80,000 likes overnight. Kash quickly realizes that what felt like an impossible dream, might actually be a possibility using social media.

The film is produced by Winterstate Films, the company behind the recently completed film “To Say Goodbye” and was written by Hamid Torabpour.

"Most of the people my age are disengaged from politics," said Torabpour, "and they don't think their voices can make a difference. I wanted to write a movie that would show that social media has changed the rules of the game and with the dawn of the age of instant notoriety online come many opportunities for good as well."

The film is scheduled to begin filming in Minnesota this fall.
