Director Statement

This short film/faux trailer was inspired by a scenario I am writing for the rpg "Call of Cthulhu" by Chaosium, as well as my love for the gaming convention, Gen Con. I thought "why not make a trailer for a movie that doesn't exist, based on a game scenario that takes place at Gen Con, and film it at Gen Con?" What you see here is the culmination of that idea.
This short film could not of been made without the hard work of everyone in the cast and on the crew. I feel like this group is one of the hardest working and most talented groups of filmmakers you will ever find.
