Playing the game
Austin's film scene has been relatively quite of late, but homegrown indie Zero Charisma about the gaming scene popped up this past week. And we're talking tabletop gaming here where the old Dungeons & Dragons pro sees his turf invaded by the upstart hipster nerd. Much of the film is being shot at Great Hall Games and Distractions on North Lamar. The film comes from director Katie Graham, cinematographer on Best Worst Movie, and writer/director Andrew Matthews, editor on Best Worst Movie. They raised $25,000 for the project on IndieGoGo. The local cast includes Sam Eidson (Austin High, Natural Selection).
