Good Luck Have Fun takes a look at professional video gaming (eSports) in Canada and how pro gamers, event organizers and the community are trying to "make it" in a competitive global landscape.
Here's a list of the players that have already confirmed being available for interview. We'll be visiting these professional gamers in their hometowns, and following them as they compete at the WCS Season 3 Finals, and in the World Cyber Games.
More players/tournaments will be announced once production begins and budget/schedules are finalized! *The more money we raise, the more players/games/tournaments we can cover!*
*Starcraft 2* - Chris "Huk" Loranger, Henry "Hendralisk" Zheng, Brendon "ryze" Walker, Maru "Masa" Kim, Christopher "Ostojiy" Ostojic, Wasif "CombatEX" Khan, Jay "TubbyTheFat" Martens
*DOTA 2* - Kurtis "Aui_2000" Ling, Peter "Waytosexy" Nguyen
*League of Legends* - Alberto "Crumbzz" Rengifo
We'll also be talking to casters, academics and experts along the way from Riot Games, Blizzard, CBC Sports & various universities.
The doc is meant to provide an accessible and human look at the world of pro gaming. It'll help grow eSports in Canada by providing a look into the world for both insiders and outsiders alike. This will be a real and honest portrayal of the people behind the gamertags, what makes them tick, and the obstacles they have to face everyday to succeed.
Starting in Mid-September (2013) we plan to drive around Canada and fly internationally filming gamers and the community on their journeys and experiences. We need funding to cover our travel and production costs. We're currently planning to shoot in Montreal, QB, Toronto, ON, London, ON, Ottawa, ON, Halifax, NS, Vancouver, BC, and Los Angeles, CA. Stretch goals include China, Romania and Sweden.
Everyone involved in the production of this film is working for free (we'll only make money if the film makes money once it's released/distributed) so every dollar that you put in here will end up on the screen.
We're really looking forward to making this film and helping grow this amazing community, but we can't do it alone. Donate now, get a copy of the movie once it's done, and let's make the 1st feature length documentary on eSports in Canada!
