Re: Documentary about Heroscape

I'd be willing to do an interview or ten.

Or even if you can fly me to LA for the private screening.

Maybe a nice HeroScape shirt?

Re: Documentary about Heroscape

Just to update you guys:

I spoke with my producer, she is quite excited for the idea and the possibilities it holds. So we are moving forward with budgeting.

Just wanted to say also that this won't be an overnight thing. We are still working towards actually shooting, but it will take time. Setting up interviews, times when people are available, trying to kill many birds with as few stones as possible, it is a long arduous process.

My team will most likely make it out to NHSD so when we have that sorted out, I will inform those that need informing.

Last Match Highlight:

3 Player Castle where Major Q9 obliterates the Castle Door allowing squads of Blastatrons and Gladiatrons to pour in on the now outnumbered 10th Regiment!

Re: Documentary about Heroscape

You might want to request video from as many NHSD events as possible from this year...maybe make a thread for this in the NHSD Events section. Pleanty of people bring cameras but few if none bring a decent video recorder. So with a little advance notice the tournament organizers can then in turn post your request in their individual threads.

In one day you'll have hours & hours of stuff to pick from.

Re: Documentary about Heroscape

Their are a few custom terrain creators that do amazing work (Leif kicker is one) and the things they create really add something to the game board. Giving them some homage would be a smart way to highlight how the game can inspire players to branch out into new hobby's (painting, sculpting, crafts, etc.) as well as make the game their own.

I definitely think the C3G project needs to get some recognition for all they have done too. It would highlight how Hasbro's failure to market and launch the Marvlescape line properly was later turned around by some fans and became a great success. It would tie directly into the 'big toy companies do not understand the market they are trying reach' angle.

Re: Documentary about Heroscape

Cleon has taken a ton of footage at GenCon the last two years. Check out his youtube channel here - he hasn't put up 2011 yet but I know he has a lot of material that I bet he would be happy to share.

Take it or leave it, but I think everyone at BGG and all the Gaming cons would love to see it. Although there is already "Going Cardboard" being produced and there was Uber Goober already - so you might want to differentiate yourself.
First of all I can't tell you how excited I am about this project. It's a great idea, and personally I would love to know what actually caused the death of heroscape.

But about mass appeal, yea, I gotta agree with lefton4ya here. You could choose several really high quality games and discuss how and why each one of them failed. If I remember correctly there was a famous board game reviewer (no I don't remember his name, but I think he was a minister from Texas or some such thing) who's favorite board game was out of production, and his third favorite (Heroscape) is now out of production.

Focusing on several top reviewed and very different board games might make it an interesting piece about the market, and why board games fail in general.

But heh, I'm not a movie maker so I'm sure you know better than me.

That reviewer is Tom Vasal who hosts the Dice Tower podcast and in 2010 Heroscape was his #2 pick and his daughter's #1, while another top game of his that is out of print is Duel of Ages.

Re: Documentary about Heroscape

I am definitely interested in seeing this project come through, but I'm not sure I can help since I'm leaving next year to Honduras for two years. I will say this though, Heroscape was the foundation inspiration that helped me piece together the novel series I wish to release when I return from my Honduras mission trip. So I have a deep appreciation for the game, the inspiration it gave me, and the times I've enjoyed playing it, especially in the old log cabin out back in a boy scout summer camp at 1:00 A.M.

Let me know if I can help before I leave by PM or email.

Oof...I got nothing to sign with now

Re: Documentary about Heroscape

I think you and the community would benefit from the exposure of having an interview of you posted on the homepage. You could ask all of the tournaments to video the proceedings and submit their footage to you. Maybe truth could volunteer someone to do the interview if he doesn't want to conduct it himself?

Re: Documentary about Heroscape

I give my support. The pros and cons of having a certain amount of HS in the movie.
Small amount, focus more on gaming overall:
Pros: More people will see it.
Cons: Less people will take action.
Large amount, main focus:
Pros: More people will take action.
Cons: Less people will see it.
So, overall, I think it should be a 50/50 split. However, don`t include HeroScape in the title. That way, more people will want to see it.
