Adam Yauch has recently announced that he will launch Oscilloscope Pictures with former ThinkFilm vice president David Fenkel. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Yauch and Fenkel plan to acquire narrative and documentary features from festivals for release in the U.S. and provide funds to complete and release unfinished films.
Yauch and Fenkel previously worked together on the Beastie Boys documentary Awesome: I F***in' Shot That for ThinkFilms. Fenkel said many campaigns will incorporate an indie music label-style, DIY approach in keeping with the Beastie Boys' style of connecting with fans.
Oscilloscope Pictures has not yet announced any films to be released.
