Sorgenfri Productions has announced that its indie documentary about online science fiction game EVE Online, titled A Tale of Internet Spaceships, will premiere on July 11, 2014.
Originally funded "a tale of dedicated fans, consumer power, conflict and redemption."(sort of - it earned half of its original $6,000 funding goal), the film is described by its creators as
The premiere will be held at 8pm on July 11, 2014, at STPLN in Malmö, Sweden. If for some mad reason you can't make it to Sweden, however, the hour-long film will also be published on major video sites like YouTube and Vimeo for free. Here's the official blurb:
The documentary, filmed during a fan convention in Reykjavik in April 2013, aims to give an in-depth look at what makes EVE Online special and why people devote so much of their lives to it. This candid exploration of a video game community investigates the sometimes complicated relationship between EVE’s dedicated player base and the game’s developers, CCP Games. It also documents one of the most tumultuous times in the game’s lifespan - the release of the Incarna expansion - which turned out to be one of the most important moments in the history of online roleplaying games.
So now EVE Online has a film out. Next up is Andrew Groen's Kickstarter-funded .
