Several years ago, I had the pleasure and distinction to meet and connect with Liz over the phone to discuss gaming and its place in our world. I told her about our film and our topic and she instantly connected with our message. The product of that connection led to her involvement in our film, a relationship with OLGA and a lasting bond that will continue for all time.
We finished /afk - AWAY FROM KEYBOARD at the end of 2011 and began sending it into the film festival circuit in an effort to bring our message to the world. As the season came to a close, we felt satisfied that our film was screened at several international festivals; garnishing an audience award along the way. We are now preparing /afk for life beyond the festival circuit, which is what brings us here today.
We are independent filmmakers and we've done everything on our own with the help of many people who gave of their time and of themselves. In fact, you are sure to recognize some of our cast from within your own ranks. The best reward for a creator is for his efforts to be fruitful and for his message to be heard. That's why we've launched a Kickstarter site so that gamers and non-gamers can learn what /afk - AWAY FROM KEYBOARD is all about.
If you're a fan of documentary film and you'd like to know more about our message, please take a look at our site, afkthefilm.com. From there, you can visit our Kickstarter page to learn more about our endeavor. REMEMBER: Support is not measured in '$$$' alone. Please help us spread the word!
Thank you OLGA for offering us a voice and for all of your time along the way. We wouldn't be where we are today withour your support.
