We're in the final stages of post production. Hope to share news of a NYC screening soon. Check our blog (www.rescuedmedia.com) for updates :-)
Hi, when's your nyc screening likely to happen? Congrats on the fledgling fund!
Keep on, keepin' on. I will be front row some day soon. That's my word. Can't wait to see how this project turns out. Stay focused, work hard. Love.
m excited to see if there are shots of me.. since my homeroom is the chess room ;D
I see you have surpassed your goal (by more than double!) - so congratulations! Still wanted to donate because this looks like such a fascinating story. I can't wait to see the screening. Best of luck!
i just donated $250. i don't need the Diamond Membership to chess.com. Please keep it or offer it to someone else. Thanks.
I truly hope that your movie is a major success and that you can get it widely distributed so that a huge audience learns what chess can teach. Maybe you'll win the Academy award for best documentary! Hopefully the movie will show all the wonderful unintended consequences for these underpriviledged kids of playing chess, so that school boards will recognize why chess should be taught in every school (as it is in many countries). Perhaps you can find some more big chess names to support your project. Good luck!
I must make correction: Chess is not the World's oldest game. Other than that, nothing negative to say about this project :)
Congratulations on your great project, I'll be glad to support it! You're doing a lot of good for chess and for the kids you're inspiring, I send my thanks to you for that and my best wishes to bring your project to completion!

What an awesome and inspiring project and what a great effort you made to highlight these children. The trailer looks wonderful . Charlie and I wish you the best!
So proud of you guys, this is awesome!
This is a great project; thanks for putting it together. The production quality looks very high. But one constructive comment for the trailer: i doubt anyone from outside the chess world (which hopefully represents a very large percentage of your final audience) will know what a rating is: that ratings exist, or what a good or bad rating is. It should be introduced somehow in the trailer.
Much love and success to the I.S. 318 Chess Team. I am honored to be able to back this project.
I love this so much. The trailer is very well done.
I'm head over heels for you two...and you know'dis. Mad love and support. Please keep us all posted if this comes down to crunch time. I am fwding this email to my cirlce. And my circle runs deep, so deep, so deep....
This is BRILLIANT. I love the teaser and can't wait to see the entire film! Best of luck with everything! I love you guys ;) Jenn
