Dead Gentlemen Gen Con Report

The Dead Gentlemen just posted a report of their incredible experiences at this summer’s Gen Con. Their early cuts of The Gamers: Dorkness Rising were packed and got several standing ovations. I can’t wait to see the final cut.

They kindly name-check me as one of their friends too, although they misspell my last name. That’s the nature of conventions, of course. You know the people—you love hanging out with them—but things like spellings can slip your mind a month later. Even names. On Gen Con Sunday, for instance, I ended up calling Matt Shimkus (Rogar the Barbarian in The Gamers) Brian as I said good-bye. I know better and corrected myself, but such slips are too easy to make when working through the con fog.

They have a Flickr stream with pictures from the convention set up. You can spot me in a few of them, as well as a lot of other industry folk—if you know who you’re looking for.

I had a fantastic time with the crew, hanging out with them and getting to know them all better. This is a truly talented group of people, and I wish them all the best in bringing Dorkness Rising to screens of all sizes soon.

  2. Or, it could be that my ancestors were once the errant Beck golfers who decided to change the spelling of the family name when they came to Ellis Island, just so they could leave behind the shame of taking out an entire family who had the misfortune of not permitting them to play through.
