My wife penned this in an email for some like-minded friends and it really hits the mark, so I had to share it here...
Last weekend I was in Seattle for a convention put on by Zombie Orpheus Entertainment and Dead Gentlemen Productions, which produces entertaining online content, such as JourneyQuest (watch the first episode) and full-length movies such as The Gamers and The Gamers 2: Dorkness Rising. Both series stem from the gaming/RPG/D&D genre and at the same time poke fun at and laud gaming. I was able to be an extra in some of the filming of The Gamers 3: Hands of Fate and experienced what these super-talented and hard-working people do to make it all happen.
I was also privileged to meet Tyler Hill, the director and writer of an online series called Glitch. (watch the pilot episode). The first season of Glitch is nearly complete with episode six to be released next week. If you grew up and/or identify with the video game generation or consider yourself nerdy, I think you'll dig this series. And if you do enjoy, please share!
At some point they'll do a Kickstarter or some other fundraising to make season two happen. The more people know about it and like it, the more likely it'll get made. At this point there is much uncertainty of that.
Cheers,BTW, the lead actor in Glitch, Jesse Lee Keeter, was just nominated for IAWTV's - Best Male Performance (Comedy) for his role. He's up against Brent Spiner (Data from Star Trek Next Generation) for his role as 'himself' in Fresh Hell.
PS: Also watch this Bonus Life episode (my favorite)
