In a unique effort to promote his latest project, Canadian filmmaker Matt Frame sat through his own film Camp Death III in 2D! 34 continuous times for a grand total of 52 hours, 27 minutes, and 23 seconds.

The PR event was streamed live via Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube and began at 8pm (PST) on Saturday December 29, 2018 and finished 12:30 am (PST) Tuesday, January 1, 2019. Despite the long and (at times) gruelling hours, Frame was successful in raising 100% of the campaign’s $1,000 goal.

Throughout the 52+ hours screening, Frame provided a running commentary and was joined by several cast and crew members who offered their own personal insights and stories from the production.

“It wasn’t too bad to be honest” said Frame, “I think the first 12 hours were the worst. Those are the hours in which you really begin to question your life choices.” “Believe me, I comprehend how idiotic and self indulgent this appeared,” declared Frame “but if I concerned myself with the opinions of strangers then I wouldn’t have raised the money to make the film in the first place.”

Camp Death III in 2D! will be digitally released on Amazon Prime February 2019. For more information about the film, visit the Camp Death III in 2D! page at facebook.com/campdeath
