Fixed's TV Broadcast Premiere!


Dear friends,

This month marks the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and you can celebrate by watching Fixed on Public TV!

With the support of many of you, Arizona State University and other friends of Fixed, we were able to remaster the film for public television this spring.  Presented by our partner station, KCRB, and distributed through American Public Television, Fixed will now be available to over 85 MILLION homes starting today! There are over ONE THOUSAND telecasts scheduled around the country, including hundreds through the World Channel. We are over the moon about these numbers, knowing that the film will reach an exponentially larger audience than ever before. 

Visit the Fixed Public TV page to learn when you can tune in and please share with your networks on social media!

In other news: 

      * Starting tomorrow, Monday, July 20th, if you get your neuro-enhancement in the form of coffee at Starbucks, be sure to log on to their internet. They will be featuring Fixed on their Starbucks Digital Network for the next week. In all of their cafes across the United States and Canada, when people log into use the internet they'll find our new Fixed trailer!

     * Fixed has been licensed by Singapore Airlines and Saudi Airlines, as well as by a Thai broadcaster. If you're flying one of these airlines or visiting Thailand, you just might catch Fixed! 

     * We have a number of community and festival screenings in the works for the rest of the summer and fall. From this Tuesday in Seattle, WA and Ithaca, NY, to this fall in Hong Kong and Toronto and even the headquarters of the AFL-CIO in Washington, D.C., be sure to check our upcoming screenings page for details - or better yet, let us know if you want to host one of your own! 

     * The Fixed DVD is now available for home use on our online store and for educational, non-profit and other institutional uses through New Day Films. The latter is 25% off with code "ADA25F" through July 31st. 

     * But wait, there's more! We've been recognized by the Bay area's Superfest: International Disability Film Festival. Last month, the longest running disability film festival in the world chose Fixed for the Best of the Festival Award, an honor we still can't quite believe. Mark your calendar for November 14 and 15, when the festival kicks off!

Who knew four years ago that Fixed would go as far as it has? You truly were instrumental in its development, and we thank you, thank you, and thank you again for the lift you provided and for your continued support!

All the best, 

Regan Brashear, Producer/Director

P.S. Check out our new trailer! 

Put FIXED on TV and make "ableism" a household word.


Dear Kickstarter supporters, 

With your support, we were able to create a damn good film. 

The Copenhagen Documentary Film Festival called Fixed "an ethical and philosophical mind-bender" and held two special events featuring the film. Numerous disability studies professors have shared that they believe Fixed is the best film in their field and bound to become a classic. 

Since its release, the film has screened and won awards in film festivals around the world. It has also been a keynote at eight academic and professional conferences. The United Nations licensed the film for their work on the Convention for the Rights of People With Disabilities. It is now being taught in classrooms at over 200 colleges and universities, including medical and engineering schools, and has inspired 2 symposiums based on the film. Our "little film that could" has been kicking butt, right? Thrilling? Yes.  I hope you are all proud of what you helped make possible. But even with all its success, Fixed has still only reached around 20-30,000 people and mostly at festivals and in college classrooms.

Now, with your support, we can get this film in front of MILLIONS of people via public television, distributed through American Public Television. 

Please consider matching your original contribution by making a tax-deductible donation today to bring Fixed to public TV this summer, to be broadcast in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the ADA, and for the next three years. 

We have 7 days left to raise $20K more to cover all the costs and fees associated with remastering the film and getting it "PBS-ready" (insurance, re-editing, sound mix, captions, audio description, hiring a stations relations consultant, etc...)

Imagine millions of people turning on their TVs to find Fixed and being exposed to the refreshing perspectives of Gregor Wolbring, Patty Berne, Dominika Bednarksa, John Hockenberry, Hugh Herr, Silvia Yee, and so many more. Learning about human enhancement technologies and grappling with ableism, eugenics, disability rights, transhumanism, responsible innovation, and bioethics, in many cases for the first time. 

As you know, this has been a grassroots, community-supported film since day one. To enter this exciting new phase, we need our larger community more than ever to help make it happen.

Please support our fundraising campaign to put Fixed on TV today! Feel free to contact me with any questions at

PS - A huge thanks and a virtual high five to those of you who have already donated!

PPS - We are still looking for additional underwriters, sponsors who can donate a larger amount starting at $2.5K whose name will be announced at the beginning and end of every broadcast for the next three years. Great advertising for your company or non-profit for a great cause! Ask me for more details!

You, Me and Public TV - Let's get FIXED on television!

FIXED, coming soon to a town near you!

Dear friends of FIXED,

There is lots of great news to share, but first of all, the biggie: FIXED IS DONE!

Thanks to your moral and financial support and the critical time provided to me through my Arizona State University filmmaking residency this spring, we, all together, were able to birth this film into being. Seven years in the making! In infinite large and small ways, you have all helped make this film a reality.

Thank you all so much!

Now let's share it with the world!
