"Man, the world of board games, especially about stuff with crowdfunding would be an amazing premise for a movie."
You're right! It would be! And Michael Lovan would agree. He's the writer/director of Murdy Bury Win, a dark comedic thriller about three independent board game developers who get sucked into a world of intrigue when their crowdfunding campaign for their new game doesn't go quite as they expected. The campaign looks to fund post-production, and there's even copies of the original board game made for the movie available as part of it. Have yourself a look.
From the campaign:
This movie is about three young dreamers that want to strike it big in the indie board game industry with their game - Murder Bury Win. The objective of their game being how to kill someone and get rid of the body.
They run a crowdfunding campaign online - and fail. And just when they think they have no shot of ever realizing success - along comes a mysterious man who says he can publish Murder Bury Win - on the condition that he is credited as the sole author of their game.
Murder Bury Win is a cautionary tale about the measures peoples are willing to take to win. And it also might be about how to kill someone and get rid of the body.
The campaign's about 3/4 of the way to funded with still 25 days left to go.
