Rough Cut - Email of Brad Raider (Kensho at the Bedfellow)

Dear Kensho Supporters,

A profound thank you for your support of the film.  It's been an epic journey so far and we can see a finished product in the not-too-distant future thanks to you.  A few updates from the front lines of post-production here in LA:

We're finessing and shopping a (very) rough cut of the film to a few more potential investors and artists who can help us finish this thing in time for festival submissions in the Fall. Sound, color, visual effects, and music are all in the beginning stages as we work to finish the edit and gather resources.  This week, a few of our team got to watch all 150 scenes in sequence with a temp soundtrack and it's really beginning to look like a movie.
Photos from our Second Unit shoot in LA are here and other Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts will continue -- you can follow and like what interests you, including these newsletters. They'll be few and far between but of course, please feel free to unsubscribe below if you'd like radio silence from us.

For our IndieGoGo supporters, we have awesome perks for you which will be sent out after the first round of festival submissions in the Fall...

Thank you again from all of us and enjoy the holiday weekend!

With gratitude,

Quack, quack, quack!

It's time to break out the Flying V, because everyone's favorite imaginary celebrity boyfriend Joshua Jackson has revealed that he would be game for a fourth Mighty Ducks movie.

Joshua Jackson Is Totally Down for a 'Mighty Ducks' Sequel
Jackson recently told Time:
I feel like a fourth film should happen, and if there was space for any of the original kids that come back and have a role, I would be surprised that anybody didn't want to do it, The next generation should have its own version. Not that we need to come back as adults, but I hope my kids grow up and play pickup hockey and I hope that they have their own movies like my generation had those movies. In that way, yeah, of course, I'd be a part of something like that."
Just give us a moment to contain ourselves at the prospect of another Mighty Ducks movie — one featuring Charlie in all his grown up hotness.

Producer Jordan Kerner says he would also be up for a Ducks sequel. He told Vulture, "I'm not going to fuel the rumor mill that it's going to happen, but I'm saying to you that the studio said to us, 'We'd be interested if you come to us with the right story.' And that's something that we've been all thinking about independently and I think that we may be coming closer to having the right idea for that."

I showed this to Rene Balcer, the creator/producer of “Criminal Intent” (he bought a bunch of the Goren & Eames pieces from “These are Their Stories”), and his response was, “I don’t think Eames would stop at his neck….”
