What is Gourmet Gamer? If you have not watched the video, and you should, here is a synopsis of the show:
"Completing the perfect marriage, Gourmet Gamer will be the first show to exclusively promote video games and great simple food .We will take you inside and behind the scenes of your favorites video games. We will provide tips and tricks, and maybe some cheat codes. We will go on location and behind the scenes of the video game industry to provide interviews with game developers, previews of upcoming games, industry news, technology features and celebrity gamer segments, as well as a look at the latest gadgets, toys and comics that gamers are interested in. Throw in a wacky sense of humor and some nifty special effects and you have a show that’s as much fun to watch as games are to play. Did I mention the food? Gourmet Gamer will show you, the gamer, quick and dirty recipes to get you through those marathon gaming sessions or when you are just plain hungry."
It is basically a cooking show for Gamers. Think Alton Brown meets Attack of the Show and throw in some Meet the Feebles (note obscure Peter Jackson reference). The primary host is of the fleece species..a puppet. Zane will help cook and keep the show on track (Puppets are shifty and generally, can not be trusted)
Who are the demented minds behind Gourmet Gamer? Gourmet Gamer is the brainchild of super (in some, very small circles) producer and Hot Pocket aficionado, Zane Fielding. Zane has over 20 years, creating "unique" moving pictures. He loves Christopher Cross, the smell of scented garbage bags and relaxing with a can of Cactus Cooler.
The better half of this production is, Evan Parra. Evan likes Neil Young...and that is all I have for Evan. He is very secretive. Zane has known Evan for over 20 years and just last week, found out Evan's last name.
The Goal Gourmet Gamer has been in the works for over 5 years. The time is now! if 2012 really is the last year of the human species, then might as well make it a fun one. And to make this all a reality, we need $2800. A fraction of what most shows cost to make and we are making 10! Creativity and resourcefulness can go a long way. Most of the money will go to gear - camera, lights, sound. Production quality is really important. The rest will go to food, props, puppets, and misc stuff. Every last dime will be spent on the show. At no time will it enter the pockets of Zane or Evan. $2800 is to cover the basics, but we will gladly take anything extra (Can anyone say Christmas and Halloween special?). And remember, If I don’t reach my goal you will not be charged anything.
Final thoughts That is all I have for now but just let me end by saying that Gourmet Gamer is a long time coming and a dream project. We believe we have something unique and want to share it with the world. Entertaining is our passion and I hope you will help is in realizing that passion.
Stay tuned for updates on the campaign, random thoughts and videos.
