Fulfillment Update #4 + Superheroes
4 months ago – Thu, Dec 01, 2022 at 02:34:48 AM

Hey filmmakers! Quick update on fulfillment:

UK/Aus/EU: done!

Asia: Still rolling out the final regions. Should be complete by the end of the month.

US: in the final stretch! If you still haven't received your copy, don't worry yet - it's likely still in the queue or on its way. Many backers have reported receiving their copy without getting a shipping notification. I do have access to Funagain Games' shipping queue for this project so I can look up your order if you're concerned. Just send me an email or a private message. But as I said there are still a handful of orders awaiting fulfillment, so there's no cause for alarm if you don't have yours quite yet.

Canada: the most patient backers in the universe, my goodness. Last but certainly not least. Your games have been picked up by Pick & Pack Logistics last week, so give them this week to process everything, and next week to start shipping. Obviously this is the biggest shipping crunch time of the year by far, so let's agree to be cautiously optimistic about that timeline.

Spanish language: these are being handled by Salt & Pepper Games. If you have questions about your order please contact them directly at

Superhero Story Pack now available! 

For those of you interested, the first Roll Camera! Story Pack is now available on my freshly launched webstore. It includes content you won't find in the B-Movie Expansion, if only because I thought of the story pack idea long after B-Movie was already at the printers...! Use the code WEAREOPEN at checkout for a bit of a discount as well.

Add a bit of superhero-themed zaniness to your filmmaking!

Currently my store will only ship the story pack to the US, Canada and EU. If you're in the UK, Australia or elsewhere and want one, please get in touch with me directly and I'll arrange it for you. As for a Spanish version of the story pack, Salt & Pepper Games has expressed interest, so we'll see!

This story pack has already been a big enough hit that I've had to order more from the factory. That's great news, so I am moving forward together with John Velgus, the co-designer and developer of the B-Movie Expansion, on designing several new story packs. I'd love to hear your thoughts - which genres or sub-genres would top your list for the next one? 

Happy filmmaking!

Your pal


Fulfillment Update #3 + Reminders
5 months ago – Sat, Oct 29, 2022 at 01:23:17 AM

Hey filmmakers - just a quick check in regarding fulfillment. I intended to write an update earlier but I wanted more than speculation to work with first. I really appreciate your patience and continued enthusiasm despite delays!

  •  US - Funagain Games just wrote me an email that Roll Camera is "still next on deck. We are wrapping up the two campaigns that arrived before yours by the end of this week, so I’d estimate fulfillment to begin either late this week or early next." I know this can has been kicked down the road a few times now but they're prepping boxes as we speak. Hang in there!
  •  Canada - Funagain will be shipping all Canadian games to Pick & Pack Logistics, so expect fulfillment to follow a couple weeks after US fulfillment starts.
  •  Asia - VFI breaks Asian fulfillment into regional batches which are slowly being fulfilled region by region, so this is still ongoing!
  •  Aus/NZ, EU, UK - Done!
  •  Spanish language: these are being handled by Salt & Pepper Games. If you have questions about your order please contact them directly at

And a few reminders:

  • If in the US your game arrives damaged from shipping, please take photos and send an email to They'll get it replaced!
  • If (anywhere) you receive a game with damaged, missing or incorrect interior components, please fill out the replacement parts form and I'll get on it!
  • Rate Roll Camera and the B-Movie Expansion on BGG when you play it! Your ratings help keep it visible, and also I read every comment and it's really valuable feedback for me as a designer. Otherwise I just send games out into the vast abyss and have to hope they're being enjoyed as intended. Kind of a strange feeling.

I am SO EXCITED to hear what you North American backers think about the game!! Y'all make up more than half the total number of backers so in a way, we haven't even started yet...!

Your pal,


Fulfillment Update + Some New Things!
6 months ago – Wed, Sep 28, 2022 at 12:47:07 AM

Fulfillment update

  • Australia/NZ: Done! Contact me if you haven't gotten yours.
  • UK: Done! Contact me if you haven't gotten yours.
  • EU: Done or nearly done! If you haven't gotten yours yet, wait until the end of this week and then let me know.
  • Asia: in progress! Asia's a big place, so you've either already gotten your game, it's coming very soon, or it's on its way and will arrive over the next weeks. Asian games are sent to a local hub near your country, and then fulfilled from there, so the process has a few more steps. It's coming!
  • US: Funagain Games has just told me they expect fulfillment to start next week. 
  • CA: Canadian games are at Funagain right now and will be sent to Pick & Pack for fulfillment to you very soon. Expect a few weeks before fulfillment starts.
  • Rest of World (English language version): like Asia, your games are on their way and in various stages of arrival depending on where you are. 
  • Spanish Language version: I've been told by our Spanish language partner, Salt & Pepper Games, that games should be arriving in their warehouse this week or next, and will be sent out shortly thereafter. If you have questions or issues regarding the Spanish language version please contact them directly at

Thanks for your patience! As a reminder, if anything arrives damaged or missing, the replacement parts form is here

B-Movie Expansion rules video

Last week I shot and edited the how-to-play video for the B-Movie Expansion. Check it out!

I'm irrationally pleased with how the lighting turned out. It may not be consistent, but man that is some nice Spielbergian bloom :)

Roll Camera design diary on BGG

I also published an in-depth design diary for Roll Camera on BGG, which was quite fun to do. Give it a read!

A new Roll Camera thing

Okay, first a disclaimer: I did not want to post about this here until everyone had received their games and expansions. I do think it's impolite to announce new things before you get your original thing. BUT this is probably the last campaign update before Essen Spiel next week, and I wanted to give a heads up if you are attending. So I hope I have your understanding!

With that said, the new thing is:

Debuting at Essen!

This is the first of hopefully many Story Packs, which are little micro-expansions featuring a handful of new material centered around a particular genre or subgenre. This one comes with 15 superhero scene cards, a new production company that requires using new CGI tokens, a new equipment card and some superhero themed scripts.

The idea with these story packs is to give you a one-off, isolated thematic Roll Camera game that also, if you choose, integrates into the main game and/or B-Movie Expansion. What's cool about this is that, going forward, I can keep supporting Roll Camera with new content that doesn't require as much intensive work and effort as B-Movie did. I can release one or two of these a year and keep the game fresh without reinventing the wheel. I'm excited for potential story packs like Silent Movie, Sitcom, Avant many ways it could go. And I'm particularly excited about the idea of YOU helping me decide on the new ones!

This one will be available at Essen and afterward on my webstore, which I'm still setting up. Just wanted to let you know in case you are coming to Essen. We'll be at booth #5C100!

And when you get your game and/or expansion, I hope you get in touch with your ideas for the next Story Pack!

Okay that's it for now - as always, if you have questions, problems, ideas, greetings, complaints or movie recommendations, I am at your service at, or on the Keen Bean Studio Discord.

Your pal,


Getting Your Game! Fulfillment Update!
7 months ago – Thu, Sep 08, 2022 at 02:23:42 AM

Exciting Times!

If you don't have it already, you are very close to getting your Roll Camera and/or Expansion. As you get your game, please keep a couple things in mind:

  • I want your game to be perfect! If anything arrives damaged or missing, please fill out the replacement parts form and I'll make it right.
  • Your opinion matters! Whatever that may be, leave a comment and/or rating on BGG for the game and/or expansion to help let other folks know if it's a game they might enjoy.
  • Join the discussion! There are lots of lovely people on the Roll Camera Facebook group and the Keen Bean Studio Discord channel if you want to share some films you've made with the game! I personally LOVE to see them, and of course with the expansion your creations are all the more insane.

Okay but where's my game?

Good question. Here's what I've got for ya:

  •  Aus/NZ: you have your games! If you don't receive it within the next two weeks, please get in touch.
  •  Asia: games are almost ready to go and will start shipping late this week or early next. (VFI)
  •  EU: games are almost ready to go and will start shipping Thursday of this week. (Happyshops)
  •  US/CA: I have just received word that games were unloaded at the warehouse today. Funagain Logistics has informed me that they don't have a backlog and so things should be pushing out pretty soon. CA orders will be divided and shipped to Pick & Pack Logistics.
  •  UK: games are still at port, and are scheduled to be unloaded from the container on Thursday. So might still be another couple weeks before fulfillment begins. (Spiral Galaxy)

Get in touch if you have any questions - a private message here on Kickstarter or email ( usually works best.

Happy filming - now or very soon!

Your pal,


Freight Update!
7 months ago – Thu, Aug 25, 2022 at 02:05:19 AM

Hey there filmmakers,

Just a quick update on how shipping and freight is going:

  •  Aus/NZ - Games are in the warehouse being processed now. You should already be receiving shipping notices from Aetherworks, and soon thereafter, your games!
  •  Asia - games are in VFI's warehouse, I'm going to send them the final backer list today. Shipping will start ASAP. From past experience I won't say when you can expect yours because it depends wildly on where in Asia you are located, but they are coming!
  •  US / CA - The games are off the boat and will be making their way by rail to Funagain's warehouse this week. You should be getting your game within the month in the US, perhaps slightly longer in Canada - Funagain will be packing up all CA games to send to Pick & Pack Logistics for fulfillment. It was faster and cheaper this way than splitting the shipment at the port.
  •  EU - the train was scheduled to arrive in Germany this week, and I'm in touch with Happyshops about the next steps once we confirm the games have cleared customs. Expect them to arrive next month.
  •  UK - the ship is still trundling along toward Southampton, scheduled to land on the 26th. So far our other shipments have enjoyed little to no delay on import, so with a little luck you'll still be getting your game in September - possibly October if they do get hung up for some reason.

Gotta love when you get a drama-free freight update these days, huh? 

Thanks to those of you that stopped by the booth at GenCon - it is always SUCH a delight to meet you, and put faces to screen names. I'm grateful to have the best backers of any campaign ☺️

Your pal,
