|The future of Random Acts of Gameness?|
Last night, Rob and I met with a friend of mine. I met Jerry about 5 years ago, when we started playing D&D together at Crossroad Games. I left the group a few years back due to scheduling issues, but Jerry and I still cross paths at the store. One of these recent chance meetings, Jerry mentioned he was looking for people to work with on video projects (that being his background) and I told him about this blog, and what Rob and I were thinking of doing with it. We ended up talking for a good bit and decided to have the three of us sit down to see what we could put together.
Well, last night was that meeting. Rob and I had been discussing exactly which direction we wanted to take our foray into board game media, but neither of us had a really solid idea of where to start. This blog has been doing great, and we were very cognizant of not rushing into something that we didn't think would be good. Jerry helped narrow our focus tremendously. Once we had the chance to sit down with someone that knows how to produce and has the access to the equipment that we don't, we were able to come up with a solid game plan.
We have a pretty unique opportunity to work with Jerry, he brings a lot to the table. He's an accomplished TV producer, and he has a fully functional studio for us to record in. That means we can put out well-shot, well edited and consistent videos. We're going to start with a series of short 3-5 minute reviews on some of the hot hits and our favorite games. Last night, Jerry did a little screen test of us talking and interacting over The Grizzled, and he told us he liked what he saw - so here we go. Look for the Random Acts of Gameness YouTube channel to go live in the next week or two. We're excited for this new direction. Stay tuned and follow along with us!
