It was about 2 ½ years ago when Shemar Moore set up and raised over $630,000 on Indiegogo to help fund his feature film The Bounce Back. Fast forward to last week and the film, which Moore both starred in and executive produced celebrated it’s premiere in Atlanta.
I had the honor of attending the premiere along with Shemar Moore and Bill Bellamy who were in attendance to tell us more about this new romantic comedy. The Bounce Back has a message that rings true…”if you loved and lost” you will likely find yourself reluctant to try love again. In fact, after being hurt you tend to go through several failed relationships, some even toxic. The Bounce Back takes us there.
ABOUT THE BOUNCE BACK:
Matthew Taylor (Shemar Moore) is a single father, author and relationship expert who is on a whirlwind book tour promoting his new best selling book The Bounce Back. He has got it all figured out until he meets the sharp tongued Kristin Peralta (Nadine Velazquez), a therapist who’s convinced he’s nothing but a fraud. Matthew’s life is turned upside down when he inadvertently falls for Kristin and has to face the painful truth of his past relationship.
Moore on Executive Producing The Bounce Back:
“It was an exciting five weeks. Without sounding corny it was a dream come true. Wearing an executive producer hat, I’ve gotten a first-hand look at how hard it is to get a movie made. It’s nice to be on this side and see it because I’ve always been on the acting side. Where you just audition, learn your lines and show up to work, but you don’t really know the machine of how it’s all put together.”
