GAMERZ is a full-length comedy movie from Scotland -- an engaging love triangle with a strong twist of fantasy!
I was the Cinematographer on GamerZ. ...
The hero is Ralph (Ross Finbow), a young nerd from a bad neighborhood who's on his way to university for the first time. Ralph is completely downtrodden in life, but he escapes from a cruel reality that he can't control by creating insanely detailed fantasy game worlds (as in fantasy games such as "Dungeons and Dragons" and "Tunnels and Trolls"), where he is firmly in charge, as "Game Keeper".
When Ralph arrives at university he immediately takes over the fantasy role-playing society in a ruthless coup. His new players include neurotic risk management student Davy (Johnny Austin) metal-head theology student Hank (Ross Sutherland) and, most importantly, the beautiful Marlyn (Danielle Stewart), a crazy Goth chick who believes she is an elf. She's the ultimate object of geek lust, and Ralph falls for her hard.
But there's a fly in the ointment: Ralph's old enemy from the hood, minor dope dealer Lennie (James Young) who has undergone a near-religious conversion to all things fantastical having watched a LORD OF THE RINGS triple bill while on acid. Now he's desperate to take part in Ralph's game. Under pain of violence Ralph agrees to let him play, but soon regrets it, when he notices a spark between Lennie and Marlyn. The seeds of a bitter love triangle are sown, and the story soon snowballs towards an inexorable apocalyptic explosion of freakish, geekish angst!
