This certainly looks interesting. You need to watch to the very end of this 1:15 long trailer. There’s NSFW language in this and until you hear “Oh… shitballs!” you’ve not got to the end.
Oh, if you’re a Harry Potter insaner then the opening quote my displease you.
This a project from the Strong Brothers. In a statement, they said;
Also, The Dungeon Master is based on a true story. Mostly.
When we were kids, we were both geeks – we played Dungeons and Dragons and all sorts of other things that make you a social outcast as an adult. As teenagers, we discovered how uncool girls thought these activities were, and so we let them fall by the wayside.
A couple years ago, however, we decided it might be fun to try again. But we approached it in an ironic way. We decided to have a tongue-in-cheek D&D game night. We couldn’t remember all the rules, and so we invited a friend-of-a-friend to come and help us. When this person came to our big game night, he was – in many ways – a stereotypical, awkward geek. We all got along fine and had an OK time, but the next morning the two of us realized a couple things:
1) that we felt compelled to make fun this poor guy and
2) that we were doing so out of of our own insecurity.
We were too cool. Our irony was a self-defense mechanism – and we were letting our insecurities get in the way of having a good time. We were acting like self-loathing snobs who go to a dance, and then stand on the sidelines and make fun of the people dancing. If we were honest with ourselves, we wanted to participate in a geeky activity, but we were still scared of being perceived as geeks. The Dungeon Master was our way to dramatize this tension and weave it into a fun, revenge-of-the-nerds narrative.
