Date Format Velocity Script

Hello,

It's been a while since I formatted dates with Velocity, I'm struggling with the DateTool methods and was wondering if someone had an example.

Here's my snippet:

 

##sets timestamp variable
#set ( $NextAppointment = ${OpportunityList.get(0).NextPhoneCallAppointment__c})

##This displays the timestamp unformatted
$NextAppointment
##This should display the timestamp formatted
$date.format('medium',$NextAppointment)

 

My sample emails renders like this, clearly the method is working:

2015-06-18 17:30:00 $date.format('medium',$NextAppointment)

 

I was using this example to get to this state:

DateTool (VelocityTools 2.0-beta4 Documentation)

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated as to what I might be doing incorrectly on calling the method.
