We’ve been covering the creative folks at Crabcat Industries for ages now and are stoked to share with you the very first episode of their Nerdist series Try This at Home With Crabcat Industries. If you’re curious about Crabcat and what they do, you should check out Morgan Spurlock’s beautiful documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: a Fan’s Hope. Try this at Home aims to help viewers with a wide variety of projects from prop building to power suits. I can’t wait to see the freaking power suits!
A few folks sent this video my way and I felt compelled to share it. I really love when people pay homage to the one game that everyone is still a bit shy to admit they play, Dungeons and Dragons. A bit of a confession…I’ve been playing DnD off and on since I was in middle school, and still think it’s the best game a person can play with a close group of friends. When I was about seven years old I traded my neighbor some Garbage Pail Kids for his monster manual and ended up using it as a coloring book… I’ve been hooked ever since. Anyway, enough nerd nostalgia… So what is this video and how was it made? Well according to the interwebs it took them “One week planning, ten hours shooting, two weeks of? editing.” Hats off to the folks at Broken Record Films for their hard work, we hope to see more from them soon. Check it out, and leave them some comments and love on their YouTube Channel.
