Two names I thought I would never see together is Tribeca and Nerdist. Being a fan of both I don’t know why this partnership hasn’t happened sooner. Now I know what you’re asking; What marvelous work of wonder could bring these to industry giants together? Well then clearly you got too excited and didn’t finish reading the headline, so I’ll just tell you now. It’s indie comedy Zero Charisma! Nerds and indie movies what better way to sum up Nerdist and Tribeca. Directed by Katie Graham and Andrew Matthews, Zero Charisma is getting some pretty solid buzz. Coming Oct 11th Zero Charisma hits select theaters as well as iTunes and On Demand. Check out the trailer below and then keep reading. Trust me it gets cooler.
PLOT: As the strict Game Master of a fantasy role-playing game, Scott (Sam Eidson) leads his friends in a weekly quest through mysterious lands from the safety of his grandmother’s kitchen. But his mastery of his own domain starts to slip — along with everything else in his life — when neo-nerd hipster Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the game, winning over the group with his confident charm and dethroning Scott with an unexpected coup. Caught in delusions of grandeur, Scott must roll the dice and risk everything to expose Miles as the fraud he believes him to be. A darkly comedic fable of epic proportions, Zero Charisma is an ode to nerds from every realm.
