In 2014 I launched a successful Kickstarter campaign that allowed me to edit a new version of "A Friend Indeed - The Bill Sackter Story" that would fit within the 1 hour time slot for PBS stations.
While the new version is shorter than the original, I made sure to give it maximal impact, staying true to the original 90 minute version that is on the DVD. I was able to get this new version broadcast on numerous PBS stations around the country, and I thank all the supporters that contributed to the effort - it is really wonderful to have so many people that believe in the inspirational true story of Bill Sackter.
Just recently I have made this new PBS version available to Amazon Prime members for free. Just click here to go to "A Friend Indeed - The Bill Sackter Story (PBS Version)" on Amazon Prime. ( https://www.amazon.com/Friend-Indeed-Sackter-Story-version/dp/B071RT795T/ ) - If you are not a member, you may rent it for a small charge as well.
Please watch the documentary, make sure you leave a review afterwards, and also send this link to your friends and encourage them to watch it on Amazon Prime as well.
If you want to see the original 90 minute theatrical version, it is available on DVD at Amazon.com at the following link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C6WURF8
The DVD version also includes over 2 hours of extras, so if you are a big fan of Bill Sackter's inspirational true story, this will be the best way to experience the documentary.
I started this project over 16 years ago, and my main goal has always been to reach as wide of an audience as possible. Hopefully making it available on Amazon Prime for free will help reach more people who have yet to experience this inspirational true story.
Thanks again to all of you that have been with me over the last several years. Your interest in helping spread the word about "A Friend Indeed" is greatly appreciated!
