In case you’re wondering, they are using a Roku box. Somehow.
Hey geeks! I’ve got a fun little announcement / casting call (more on that shortly) regarding my upcoming book. To help promote the title (and because I thought it would be fun to do anyway), we’re launching a mini webseries tie in to The Geek’s Guide to Dating over at Quirk Books.
Adorably geeky couples hop on camera and discuss their relationship in short, one minute videos, and dish out useful pieces of advice to other geeks out there. Playing MMORPGs. Starting a podcast as a couple. Sharing comic books. Learning how to cosplay together. Fun stuff like that, shot in the vein of those old couple vignettes in When Harry Met Sally.
The videos will be shot by the fantastic Andrew Gormley, who produced the beautiful video recap of last year’s Philadelphia Geek Awards.
Over the course of the Fall and through the Winter, the videos will be posted on Geekadelphia and on the Quirk Books website. It’ll tie in with a fun contest that I’ll announce once the series starts.
Now, on to the even more fun part.
I’m looking for people to be in the mini web series! If you’re in the Philly area (or able to get here easily!), Andrew and I would love to shoot you telling your story. We’re planning to shoot the series over the course of two days, split up due to the Philly Geek Awards, but you only have to be available for one.
- Saturday, July 20th
- Sunday, September 15th
