Alright, the time has come for me to shamelessly plug a creative endeavor. I work as a director with an independent production company in Atlanta, and we are releasing our first feature film, Geekin'
. It's a romantic comedy about gamers, and something I'm quite proud of. We;ve just started accepting pre-orders, and will be releasing the film at the start of August.
So please, stop by our website, http://www.geekinmovie.com
, check out the trailer, our web features, which include several promotional shorts and a webcomic by Jennie Breeden (of The Devil's Panties), and order yourself a copy. Thanks everybody!
Here's the official synopsis of the movie:
Geekin' is an original film about friends united in their common passion: role-playing games. As often as they can, these social misfits whisk away to the mythical land of Tir Sidaj, where they take personas as warriors, wizards, healing witches, and one mighty gnome. But a new arrival threatens to tear it all apart. The ultimate geek weakness -- an attractive girl.
After a lengthy online courtship, Morgan and Meredith finally meet for the first time. But when Morgan introduces Meredith to his gamer friends, sparks fly between her and Morgan's best friend Brown, leaving Morgan on the outside looking in. This sets off a chain of events that pits geek against geek, with their friendships, their happiness and (*gulp*) their game hanging in the balance.
"Geekin'" A Saga of Love, Jealousy, and Twenty-Sided Dice.
(Note: Release date is currently on or around August 1, 2006)
