We're in the process of telling the second part of Fred's story-- the viral video, his leap to fame, the chart-topping song... and we want your help!

We're looking for anyone who was moved by A Letter from Fred to send us a short video answering a couple of questions, and it may be featured in Part 2!

It can be with a cell phone, web cam--or just that old video camera you have lying around--just send it in!

Here's what we want to know:

1. Your name and where you're from

2. How did you find A Letter from Fred online? (Did a friend send it to you? Did you just stumble onto it?)

3. What were your thoughts and feelings after you watched it?

4. Is there any message you'd like to give Fred?

Here's how to send it in (*requires a Google/Gmail account): 



We need your submission by Sunday, April 13th.

Your video will only be viewed by the team here at Green Shoe. If your submission is chosen as part of the documentary, we will be in contact with you.


**DISCLAIMER: By sending us your video you are authorizing Green Shoe Studio (Producer) to edit your material as Producer may desire, and incorporate such Recording into A Letter from Fred Part 2 (the Film), any versions of the Film and all related materials thereof, including but not limited to promotion and advertising materials. It is understood and agreed that Producer shall retain final editorial, artistic, and technical control of the Film and the content of the Film.

We're looking forward to hearing from you!

The second Artist Session we'd like to share features two of our good friends, Michy and Markie Maloof. The awesomely talented duo can harmonize like no one else. Check out their Aritst Session and hear their cover of Coldplay's "Fix You."

Green Shoe Studio Awards/A Letter from Fred Part 2

Hey everyone! Hope you've been well lately.

We wanted to update you on a few things that have been going on around here!

March 15th was our first every Green Shoe Studio Awards. We partnered with Illinois Central College to honor some people in our community making a difference through music. It was an awesome night, and hopefully the first of many!

The second half of the evening was An Evening with Fred. Mr. Stobaugh himself joined us onstage for a live interview where the audience had an opportunity to hear his point of view about his newfound fame and reflect on Lorraine.

After his interview, Fred and Jacob's brand new song was premiered live for the first time! The crowd loved it (hey, it might be another hit!) Took Her Home will be available at the end of April for the whole world to enjoy!

Along with Took Her Home, the second documentary we are working on, A Letter from Fred Part 2 will be coming out next month. Many people loved A Letter from Fred, but were left feeling so sad at the end; Part 2 is about Fred's leap to fame and an opportunity for everyone to know he's doing well. Of course he misses his sweet Lorraine, but his story is not over.

After the night was over, fans got the chance to take to take pictures with the ever gracious Fred. I think it may have been the highlight of the night for many of our guests!

Hopefully next year we'll see you at the Green Shoe Studio Awards!

Craft paper: $10
Clear duct tape: $3
Chalk: $.60
