- Jul 2, 2006FINALLY! DORK OF THE RINGS WORLD PREMIERE!! AT
After years (literally) of waiting, its finally time

its fans and friends, at least) of the Richardson
Productions film The Dork of the Rings!
It will take place at GenCon in Indianapolis, IN
(August 10th 13th). You can find more info at the
conventions website www.gencon.com - but heres a
rundown of our schedule so you can decide what else to
skip so you can catch us J
THURSDAY : 7pm to 8:30pm Dork of the Rings Sneak
Preview. (Weve added new scenes and SFX, so if you
think youre gonna see the same-old, think again my
FRIDAY : 1:30pm to 2:30pm the computer team from
DotR will be on the panel for Creating 3-D Computer
FX for Movies. We rock.
10pm to 12am Dork of the Rings

There will be 2 more screenings of the film Saturday
at 8:30 pm and Sunday at 8 am. Plus, we
ll have our requisite booth-o-goodies, and characters
in costume. Again, attack at will. And stop by the
booth to say hello (or nag me for all the blogging
Ive ruined over the past year). For more info, check
out our website (www.dorkoftherings.com), or go to the
GenCon website. You can get either daily or

DRAGONCON: Weve been accepted to screen! Over Labor
Day weekend in Atlanta in THE largest (so Ive been
told) Sci-fi/fantasy/horror convention in these United
States. Several of the production crew and cast will
be out there to take part as panelists for the Indie
Filmmakers track, and also run 2 seminars about the
making of DotR through the Tokien track. For more on
this, check out www.dragoncon.org, OR join up with
many others on OUR mailing list at the site.
Well also be doing Public Premieres at Indiana
University South Bend, IN (duh), so if youre in the
area, why not stop by and say hello? Give us a pat on
the back, let us know what you think?
The premieres will be on Saturday, September 23, and
Sunday, September 24; and also running in October the
6th through the 8th.
And to end this; remember that nerdy kid from the
dearly-departed NBC television series Ed? No? Well,
how about that nerdy kid in the flick Dodgeball?
Still nothin? OK, how about that nerdy kid in the
film Jeepers Creepers? Oh, THAT guy! Hes actor
Justin Long, and our dubious doer of anti-production,
Jack Peterson, has captured him (on FILM, people, calm
down!) for our mockumentary Dorkers. Youll be able
to see the doc at The Gathering of the Fellowship and
Elf II this summer.
And with that, I bid you all ado until the next blog
Marketing Slave (and still loving it!)
