We're ready to show you an updated rough of the film! Here’s the plan:
-The viewing window to watch the current cut of the film online is now open (shout out to our friends at Odeum for taking care of the stream).
-The viewing window will stay open until Tuesday, January 3rd at 11:59 pm pacific time.
-We will email you today with a unique link to view the film one time within the viewing window.
-We just exported this cut last night, so subtitles are not available yet. If you'd like to watch this rough with subtitles, please let us know.
We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback. As always, we are incredibly grateful for your support.
Happy Holidays and much love from Jake & Jed.
On another note, if you have been keeping up with the project at all, you are familiar with Ish Shabazz. We follow his story through the length of the film and hopefully get across what a great guy he is. On Twitter and in the greater Orange County, Ish is a beloved member of the development community. He is incredibly generous with his time, knowledge, and friendship. Tragically, Ish's wife was just diagnosed with oral cancer. Within the next six weeks, she will need to have surgery to remove the mass, along with some of the adjacent bones in her face. You can read Ish's posts about it here and here.
On a beautiful note, some of Ish's friends have started a GoFundMe campaign. Originally setup to treat the Shabazz family to a pre-surgery Disney trip, it has transformed into an outpouring of support from the developer community. Knowing how generous all of you are and how much you care about the community, we wanted to make sure you had the opportunity as well. If you feel inclined, please give what you can as Ish and his family start down this long and difficult journey.
