Captain Euchre is Fighting Crime… without a Full Deck
October 26, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News(Toronto, ON) Soon to be airing on Movieola—The Short Film Channel (www.movieola.ca), the short form, multi-platform comedy Tights and Fights is ready for viewing at www.tightsandfights.com.
Tights and Fights is a fictional video diary of the ups and downs (and sideways) of a Canadian super-hero, Captain Euchre (played by writer/producer Scott Albert). Once a highly ranked player on the professional Euchre circuit, Captain Euchre now fights crime using a Euchre card deck which was exposed to mysterious cosmic radiation! Using his webcam, Captain Euchre keeps us updated about his daily life – whether he’s bogged down in meetings with Ronin Force, fighting Librarian Marm or the Salad King, or dating Dynagal, each hilarious episode contrasts the comic book clichés of being a super-hero with the frustrations of modern life.
Created expressly for the demands of multi-platform distribution, Tights and Fights is simultaneously distributed online, on mobile, and traditional broadcast. Each episode is less than five minutes long, making it ideal for viewers looking for a “content snack” on the go or just a quick break, while the ongoing storyline is also perfect for someone to sit back on the couch and watch a number of episodes in a row. The current storyline of 52 episodes will last until March 2008, with plans for a new batch of episodes to begin soon after.
With this ongoing series, Gopher X is building on the run-away success of our previous multi-platform series, the animated six episode limited series The Retired Porn Producer’s Guide To… which has received over 100,000 views across the internet since its launch last year. It is currently airing on Movieola—The Short Film Channel and is distributed on mobile by Big Bang Pictures. A second 12 episode limited series, Team Leader, is currently in post-production, with a launch expected by the end of the year.
www.gopherx.net is a partnership between Christopher Guest and Scott Albert. Gopher X and The Retired Porn Producer’s Guide To… has been featured on G4 Tech TV’s Torrent TV, and has been covered by C21 Media and Playback Magazine. Tights and Fights can currently be seen on Movieola—The Short Film Channel and after October 26, 2007 at www.tightsandfights.com.
