Mark Lund Secures Funding to Produce Justice Is Mind
Backed by Texas chemical and construction executives, the feature film Justice Is Mind formally moves into pre-production with principal photography to begin in August.
“To say I am ecstatic would be an understatement. It’s every filmmaker’s dream who produces a short film based off a larger story to have the opportunity to tell the greater story,” said Lund who wrote Justice Is Mind. “Thanks to Mary Wenninger and Stefan Knieling they have made that reality possible.”
Based in Houston, Texas, Wenninger is a senior executive at a major chemical company. Her husband, Stefan Knieling, is chief executive officer of a commercial construction company and also represents one of the world’s largest parking guidance systems in the United States.
“Stefan and I are proud to have the opportunity to be a part of this project,” said Wenninger. “Justice is Mind is a timely story that marries cutting edge technology with its possible impact on civil liberties. It raises meaningful questions in an entertaining way - the audience will be talking about the film long after they leave the theater.”
Written by Mark Lund, in Justice Is Mind MRI technology has advanced to a point where imaging of long term memories can be produced in near video quality. When local businessman and restaurant owner Henri Miller has the new FVMRI scans and it reveals him murdering two contractors on his property, the first Superior Court trial begins in which a defendant’s own memory can be introduced as evidence.
To market the concept of Justice Is Mind to investors, Lund produced a short film version Justice Is Mind: Evidence in the fall of 2011 http://www.imdb.com/
“The timing could not be better to produce Justice Is Mind,” said Lund who will direct the feature. “The science fiction postulated in Justice Is Mind is actively being developed as science fact and will eventually reach our courtrooms.”
Jessica Killam, who served as assistant director and as a producer for Evidence, will be returning in the same capacity for the feature film. In addition to reaching out to the cast and crew from the short film, casting and crew notices for the feature will be posted in early June. Justice Is Mind will primarily be filmed in Massachusetts and can be followed on Facebook [https://www.facebook.com/
