Zombie Orpheus Entertainment is a pioneer in a new, freer distribution model for content. Fan supported and creator distributed, ZOE strives to remove the classic constraints on entertainment. No DRM, allowing you to enjoy your entertainment on your terms. Creative Commons licensing allowing redistribution and remixing. Region-free DVDs without copy protection allowing you to archive and protect your purchased content however you see fit. Our model means fan support translates directly to new content. If enough fans like a show, it can’t be cancelled. No studio, no network, no cancellation.
The Gamers: Hands of Fate is the latest film by Matt Vancil. Beginning five years after the end of Dorkness Rising, Cass (Brian Lewis), Leo (Scott C. Brown), Joanna (Carol Roscoe), Gary (Christian Doyle), and Lodge (Nathan Rice) are having difficulty fitting gaming into their hectic schedules. The Shadow remains undefeated and the crew vows to conclude their campaign at Gen Con – the best four days in gaming. Meanwhile Cass is pulled into the world of Collectible Card Games in hopes of winning a date with Natalie (Trin Miller), a highly skilled hardcore player who is trying to save the heart of the
game from monetized corruption. Funded by Kickstarter, The Gamers: Hands of Fate ended its campaign as the highest funded film in Kickstarter history.
