A film for the geek in all of us.

If you love TV series "Spaced" and film "Scott Pilgrim vs the World"-
this short is a homage to the director Edgar Wright and his writing.
The style of this film is similar being fast paced, quirky and in the
realm and mind of the gameworld.
The soundscape for the film is impressive using game themes and
electronic sounds at appropriate moments, much more than you would
expect from a student film.
The simple plot is set around a reclusive geek named Ryan who has no
concept of the real world of socialising and having girlfriends and
stays in his darkened cave of his room adorned with collectible
memorabilia and game cartridges. One day, he decides to go to Comicon
dressed as Anakin Skywalker to indulge in the gameworld with other
likeminded people- blending the real with the fantasy game world. This
is when he meets a bubbly girl named Teagan dressed as Queen Amidala...
All in all, a short and sweet film.
