When last seen the team behind Ascendants The Movie had hit the festival circuit with the prequel after the wrap party. It was well received from La La Land to Vermont and in December is to be shown at the Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival down in Brooklyn.
For those who have not been following Ascendants, it is the sci-fi exploration of life after death. Considering all the derivative ideas that get made, this is truly an original concept if ever there was one. The trope is usually associated with the occult or religion. No one, to the Boston film Industry Examiner’s knowledge, has explored the possibility of scientifically generated existence after we have shuffled off the mortal coil.
It is time to make the next installment, Prequel Episode 2. Of course, with a project this ambitious, fundraising is unavoidable. Team Ascendants has put together an Indiegogo campaign. In the video Don Schechter and Nadia DeLemeny outline the project and its goals.
Don is the writer, director and producer of Ascendants. He also scored the prequel’s music. Don is also the founder of the Charles River Media Group, a well-regarded production company. Nadia, an accomplished actress, is co-producer.
After Don and Nadia finish speaking, the video plays the first installment of Ascendants.
There are numerous perks including your own voicemail message recorded by Nadia. Be assured, it will sound far more sophisticated than your current message.

So, do we want to live forever? Woody Allen has an extensive oeuvre, but he would prefer obscurity to extinction,
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying.
Who knows, if he can stimulate the scientific community to take up the research through the success of Ascendants, Don may achieve both.
