ABOUT THE FILM:     All Lodge wants is for his gaming group to finish their adventure. Unfortunately, they’re more interested in seducing barmaids, mooning their enemies, and setting random villagers on fire.      Desperate to rein in his players, Lodge injects two newbies into the distrust: a non-player character controlled by Lodge, who the power gamers immediately distrust, and the rarest gamer of all — a girl. Can the group overcome their bickering to save the kingdom, or will the evil necromancer Mort Kemnon triumph unopposed?       A parody of fantasy films and the adventure gaming community, THE GAMERS: DORKNESS RISING is a hilarious romp through the world of sword and sorcery — in this case, a world of exploding peasants, giant house cats, and undead roast turkeys. Game on!  Source: deadgentlemen.com
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:     Matt Vancil is the creator of JOURNEYQUEST and the co-developer of STROWLERS for Zombie Orpheus Entertainment. In his years as head writer for Dead Gentlemen Productions, he wrote a number of features and short films, including most notably the DEMON HUNTERS and GAMERS films.     Vancil’s debut as a writer/director resulted in the wildly successful cult fantasy comedy THE GAMERS, which won the 2003 Gen Con Film Festival and has screened at fantasy conventions and festivals worldwide. The feature-length sequel, THE GAMERS: DORNKESS RISING, premiered at Gen Con in 2006 and screened at Comic Con in 2008. The film found DVD distribution through Anthem Pictures later that year, and is available on Amazon and Netflix.     In 2008, Margaret Weis Productions adapted the DEMON HUNTERS movies into a role-playing game in their award-winning Cortex System, which already hosts games based on Battlestar Galactica and Joss Whedon’s Serenity.       Vancil also created the zombie survival horror show ALIVE with Star Trek: Enterprise veterans Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens and Epic Level Entertainment.    He is a graduate of the American Film Institute with an MFA in Screenwriting.  Source: journey-quest.com
