POP-POP IS DEAD at Winter Film Awards in New York City

POP-POP IS DEAD screened on Tuesday, February 19th at the Winter Film Awards in New York City at the Village Cinema in the Lower East Side. As an Associate Producer, I flew up to the festival to represent the film, and was joined at the screening by camera operator Josh Roberts. Coki Productions had me take over their Instagram profile page @cokiproductions to post stories from the festival. View my own NYC story posts from my personal Instagram profile @ted.kendrick.

After the screening, I was invited on stage for a Q&A segment alongside fellow filmmaker Lorena Colmenares, a New York based writer and director from Venezuela, at WFA with her black and white cult drama NINE KNOTS. Mister Fitzgerald was the MC, who asked questions about inspiration, easter eggs, and process before opening the floor up to the audience. It was a pleasure to represent Coki Productions at the Winter Film Awards, and I hope to attend again someday.

GOOD HAIR @ Iron Mule in NYC!

GOOD HAIR played at the Iron Mule Comedy Short Film Festival in New York City on March 7th at the Alamo Drafthouse. When I pushed GOOD HAIR through the festival circuit last year, a few of the events were scheduled so far in advance that I nearly forgot about Iron Mule, but it was a welcome surprise to be programmed. Iron Mule looked like a wonderful event, and I wish we could have attended!

Co-Owner at LEGION M

Legion M is the world’s first fan-owned media company. Individually, we are simply consumers, but with the goal to unite one million fans together as shareholders, Legion M presents huge potential for positive change in the way that we produce entertainment. Legion M’s mission is furthermore supported by the star-power of industry elites such as Stan Lee, Kevin Smith, Seth Green, Tim League, Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, Alamo Drafthouse, Meltdown Comics, and 42 Entertainment.

I purchased 13 shares of stock just before the second investment period closed, making me an official Co-Owner and Investor of Legion M. I’ve since become a member of a private Facebook group where I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with other members of Legion M, as well as participate in exclusive discussions, surveys, and polls relating to the development of Legion M’s upcoming content.

Legion M’s first project was the feature film COLOSSAL, written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, starring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. Legion M joined as a co-production with NEON after the film was purchased at Toronto Film Festival. COLOSSAL is a story about an out-of-work party girl forced to leave her life in New York City, and move back home. When reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, she comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this phenomenon. The film is currently available to stream via Amazon Video.
