Magic Stone Productions and Shark Films announced today that indie comedy Zero Charisma begins production on Monday, April 2 in Austin, Texas. Sam Eidson (Natural Selection; My Sucky Teen Romance) has been cast as Scott, an obsessive fantasy gamer who struggles to defend his tabletop turf and fellow role-players from an interloping neo-nerd hipster. Dakin Matthews (True Grit; Desperate Housewives; Lincoln), Anne Gee Byrd (ER; Everybody Loves Raymond; Monk) and Cyndi Williams (Temple Grandin; Room) have also been cast in the film.
Zero Charisma is produced by Michael Stephenson and Lindsay Rowles Stephenson of Magic Stone Productions, the company behind the hit documentary Best Worst Movie, and Ezra Venetos of Shark Films, producer of the award-winning feature Five Time Champion. Thomas Fernandes is also producing alongside Rod Olson. Andrew Matthews penned the script, and will co-direct with Kate Graham.
The production received much attention in Spring 2011 with the success of a crowd-funding campaign on IndieGoGo.com, which was launched in tandem with the release of a three-minute teaser that Fernandes produced and Graham and Matthews directed for fundraising purposes. In Fall 2011, the production was awarded a $5000 grant from the Texas Filmmakers Production Fund. Zero Charisma's TFPF page can be found https://www.austinfilm.org/sslpage.aspx?pid=1517|here.
Zero Charisma's cast and crew have been finalized with local Austin talent as the primary resource. To view the teaser-trailer and learn more about the production please visit ZeroCharisma-TheMovie.com.
