Sorgenfri Productions is proud to announce that their indie documentary about online science fiction game EVE Online, A Tale of Internet Spaceships, will premiere on July 11, 2014.
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.
A Tale of Internet Spaceships is a tale of dedicated fans, consumer power, conflict and redemption.
The entire project was crowd funded through Indiegogo by 82 funders, gathering the $3000 that made up its budget.
The premiere will be held at 8pm on July 11, 2014, at STPLN, Malmö, Sweden. At the same time, the one hour long film will be published for free to major video sites like YouTube and Vimeo.
