Great news on the other film front

Just got some great news on the other film front. If you don’t know, I co-wrote a script called The Fellows Hip a while back. The story is a bit of a spoof on The Lord of the Rings. It’s about some high school buddies who are online gaming geeks. Their main goal in life is to get to the Lord of the Rings online gaming competition down in Florida.

Anyway, the film got shot and post-production finished recently.

The good news is that it just got accepted to the Gen Con Indy Festival in Indianapolis, August 16-19. I’m not sure which day it’ll be screened, but look it up if you’re attending or anywhere near. Also, it just got accepted to the Return of the Ring Festival at Loughborough University in England, August 16-20. One of the main actors in the film is currently attending grad school at St. Andrews in Edinburgh, so he’ll go down to present.

If you want to know more about the film and check out a trailer, stop by the FellowsHip site.

  1. Oresome! (as my son just wrote to someone)
    So, where might the average geek who hangs out neither in Indianapolis nor Loughborough University be able to watch this?

    1. I don’t know yet. They’re hitting a lot of festivals with the film first, to see if they can scare up some distribution deals. I’m guessing there’ll be more definitive options coalescing in the next 6 months.

  2. WOW Christopher! Such great news and Congratulations! You are an amazing and talented guy and I am blessed to call you my friend. Keep us posted as to when the general public can view it. Have you seen it completed yet?

    1. Well, shucks… the perspective is mutual. We are honored to know you and Paul. I think the first run of DVDs is supposed to show up next week. I’m going to try and get my hands on a copy and maybe try a showing here.

  3. DVD? I’ll buy! would LOVE to see it. The Lord of the Rings trilogy and soon to be quaterlogy is my favorite film, yes, singular, of ALL time! right up there with Ben Hur, but not Titanic…

    1. I’m not sure what the plan is for selling DVDs (the whole production team is out on the east coast, so I don’t have a lot of involvement with their day-to-days), but IL”l post something here as soon as I hear.

    1. Engines. I sincerely wish I knew how to pull apart a car engine and then put it back together. One of my brothers has an uncanny knack for that sort of thing. Pulled apart a Caterpillar D-3 engine when he was 14 years old or thereabouts. Now, he can do just about anything mechanical he sets his hand to.
