Last year saw the beginning of NOVA Open Terrain Days. These were days where some awesome guys and gals would get together, build tables and terrain, drink beer, and ham it up nonstop. Over the course of this time, we got to talking about a lot of the gamer "stereotypes" out there, about Youtube movies, about funny things about our hobby in general ... and out of all that, one of our guys, Jon, said "Wouldn't it be cool if all this was like, in a hilarious movie or something?"
Bad move, Jon. To me, the NOVA Open presents a sandbox for each of its staff members and organizers to kinda do whatever they want ... until now, just with formats and tournaments and all that. BUT ... thanks to Jon, we've now expanded that vision. We made a movie.
I want to caveat I had NOTHING to do with this; I acted in it, because they cast me in it, but I didn't come up with the plotlines or the story or anything other than the things I tried to adlib during each scene.
We stuck a TON of "Easter Eggs" in here as well ... ranging from references to LOS blocking terrain all the way to movie quotes and even a Family Guy reference. Let's see how many of them you guys can catch and point out!
Enjoy the film, and I hope to see ya'll at the NOVA this year, where Unicorn, The Rage, Catbox and others will all be in character and happy to say hey!
