Hey everyone!

“Ok people, there has been some SERIOUS etching, ink and tattoo work going on in our “Be Here Now/MMQ” community. Listen up.

Could you please take a high-res photo as beautifully shot as possible - with none of your naked bits showing - and e-mail in. No faces please!

May possibly be used somewhere at end of the doco….. Maybe!!!


So for all of you who have or are planning to get Andy/Spartacus/Be Here Now tattoos - please e-mail high quality photos of them to Lilibet Foster at lilibet@beherenowfilm.com, as soon as possible. Thank-you. :)

Hey all!
There is less than 20 hours to go until the end of the ‘Be Here Now' funding campaign. With close to $300,000 dollars raised, Our Champion Andy's vision is set to be realized, and it is all thanks to the efforts of every single person who rallied together in the common effort of honoring the wishes of this brilliant man - a man we all loved.
He was and will always be a father to two beautiful children, a husband to an equally beautiful and brilliant wife, a son, a cousin…a friend to many, and Andy… you were and will always remain, a Champion to us all.
Remembering Andy Whitfield -
October 17th, 1971 - September 11th, 2011.
To paraphrase a line from ‘Spartacus’:
He was indeed the sun, and now his light rises everyday in the souls of every single life he touched, both near and far.
We love you Andy.

Be Here Now

'Spartacus' star Manu Bennett representing 'Be Here Now’, at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con on Friday,  July 13th, 2012.
Of the project, Manu said to TV | LINE’s Michael Ausiello:
“Of course, you know, we’re also remembering Andy Whitfield, he’s got a documentary coming out soon called ‘Be Here Now’, so for anybody who really sort of has enjoyed the show and loved Andy’s performance in the first season, it’s a must-see to see his documentary about his life and his struggle with cancer.”
Watch Manu talk about the film, plus the cast discussing the end of the series here

Just in time to be this blog’s 100th post, ‘Be Here Now’ has hit a STAGGERING $250,000 dollars, all toward funding Andy’s story. That’s a quarter of a million dollars collectively generated by all of you, Andy’s beautiful fans - and making the last wish of a beautiful man come to fruition. 
Here’s a logo design I created this morning to further celebrate Andy’s story and message to us all. Hope you enjoy! The butterfly represents Andy’s message to his children - because now he has achieved his wings, wings that spread his message far and wide.

“I mean I was exhausted by the end of the first season, but I’m pretty sure anyone would have been. It’s one of the most extreme things I’ve ever gone through. And uh, there was a lot of pain at the end of that - wasn’t sure what it was, and it wasn’t going away, and ended up being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.”
