We did the best movie we could and we took a shot. After attempting and dreaming of doing a film on 35mm for twenty years, I never thought our first film would have such a kick-ass cast and crew!
Let's talk about something else, we got some love from the greatest gaming system ever!
We made it in the November newsletter from Intellivision Productions!
"Four high-school geeks obsessed with a role-playing game continue their obsession after graduation. 23 years later, they are about to break the record for total hours spent playing the game. Gamers is a comedy shot documentary-style following these now middle-aged geeks on the day they are to set the new record.
One of the main characters, Gordon, played by Kevin Kirkpatrick, appears for a substantial amount of the movie wearing Intellivision t-shirts. And you can get shirts just like them on our website! Don't worry, you don't have to be a geek to wear one (but it helps).
Directed by Intellivision-fan Christopher Folino, Gamers is an independent film headed for the festival circuit and, with luck, a general release."

I ain't gonna lie. I couldn't sleep last night, so I watched two movies that featured Scott Allen Rinker.
"Shoot or be shot" which I'm half way through and I'm enjoying it! It also stars William Shatner and its cool seeing Scott. He did a great job!
And I got to see "Code Hunter" with the three coolest guys in the world.
Tone Loc, Coolio, and Scott Allen Rinker! Man, the stories from that set! I think that was when Scott Allen Rinker swore his allegiance to West Coast Rap!
I'm going to go stare at my phone.
Thanks for all the good thoughts today. Regardless of what happens we will post it.
