I mentioned the game-themed movie project "Your Friends Close" a week ago, where I said I hoped it would "become a mix of a (game) designer couple's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf mixed with some Godard and Wes Anderson influences."
The indie movie's writer and director, Brock Wilbur and Jocelyn Kelvin, told me this week that it was a pretty accurate description, so that should make those of you who watch good movies a little bit more excited. Also, Yahtzee Croshaw (Zero Punctuation) and Lisa Foiles (All That, Top 5 with Lisa Foiles) have recently joined the cast, so if you passed on this because of a lack of accents and former child actresses, you have no excuse now.
You can read more about the movie project, which delves into the relationships created through our interactive medium of choice and how it defines and affects real-life relationships, on its Kickstarter page.
Should you decide to pitch in on the Kickstarter, you can count yourself among current backers like Jane McGonigal (Reality is Broken) to bask in reflected glory and all that. Make it happen, so we can finally watch a game-related movie thing that doesn't suck for once. At least, I hope it will be good. If it happens. Which it should.
