I used to frequent the board as the dreaded "Tyler1451", I am deeply regretful for every single one of my posts under that moniker. However, onwards and upwards.
It's almost 4 years to the day since we last saw the web series. And in that four years I've been tinkering with the idea, on and off, to make a fan series set in the universe of the web show. After being in somewhat moderate contact with Davin and Geoff, I've decided to go through with it (and Davin's kind of excited, Geoff's a bit apprehensive, though). Here is the Concept trailer (displaying the overall tone of this series):
Proof of concept teaser
The show takes place four years after the web series ended, it's set in the same universe. And it centralizes on an (as-of-yet undecided) group of ex-members of the now-defunct Gamer Army, forced to get back into the world of Uber-Micro and Pwnage after so many years. The reason the GA became disbanded was due to the mysterious "Event", a point in time which caused the disappearances of Teh_Pwnerer, Teh_Masterer, Kyle, FPS_Doug, Dave, etc, etc some months after Just The Guys Pt 2 was uploaded.
It's very much a mystery series, it will still be in mockumentary style. Try to think LOST meets Marble Hornets with Pure Pwnage lore. That doesn't mean there won't be comedy or lightheartedness. I just want to make clear that this won't try to rip off Pure Pwnage; This'll take it in a whole other direction.
I have most of the series planned out, I've contacted forum veteran and all around nice guy JeffTheWorld about doing the music for the series, I have potential actors, props, equipment. But what I need is you.
I want to involve the PP community in this project. I don't want this to be a fan-series, I want this to be a fans-series, the PP fans, who long for more from the PP universe.
I would love to have some other forum veterans to play themselves and weave them into the narrative, giving the community a chance to be revived. It would be nice to bring PP back, but, in my mind, it would be nicer to bring back this great community. I've been getting interest and good feedback from the PP crew who's seen it thus far. Filming for the show will be in Toronto, Oakville and possibly Hamilton.
If you're in that area, or you're better connected to the original cast and crew than I am, and you're interested in helping out, you can add me on skype at Tyler1451, or tweet me @Tylerhallkuch.
And if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please ask, tell, or yell, respectively. Thank you for your time, I look forward to your input.
Update: There's a Facebook page where all future news will be posted there as well
