Funded! This project was successfully funded on November 10, 2011.


A fun expose on the game, its culture, and its professional world championships.

Once upon a time, an actor and Magic geek named Nate and an unemployed filmmaker named Shawn showed up with a camera at a convention hall and made a video about Magic: The Gathering's professional tournament scene ( It was a blast for them, and there were thousands of people who watched their video on the internet and demanded more, more, more!! They decided to seize the day by planning a new video. This one would be a documentary about Magic's biggest event of the year, the World Championships!

We believe that a documentary about something as grand and special as a fantasy card-game's world championships deserves to be grand and special itself. It must be bigger and more splendid than the last! It must be unlike any other Magic-related video. It must also be super-fun for non-Magic players. It will necessitate a trip to San Francisco, which means time and money must become important concepts to Nate & Shawn when producing it!

For real, we can't do this without you. If we fall short of our goal, the documentary will not be made (and all contributions returned). That's why we're hoping you can help make this video a reality and back us! There are sweet rewards for contributing in addition to the satisfaction you'll take in funding the arts. The $2,000 goal represents what we need to avoid losing *too much* of our own money in making it. 

We are sure you'll be tickled by our video if we're successfully funded! If you don't see a reward package that strikes your fancy, just e-mail with a proposal for a "custom package" that would suit your needs. We are enormously grateful for whatever contribution you can make, large or small. 

Thank you so much for your support!
