Read an Interview with Don Swaynos

Here’s an excerpt from the Q&A with cinematographer Don Swaynos after the first showing of the film at the Angelika Theater

Pat: “Given that the differences between players of original AD&D and version 3.0 or 3.5 is just like the protestants and Catholics, did you encounter any of that tension?”
Don: “Uh, well, not really.”
Pat: “Why didn’t you do anything on Euro-gamers?”
Don: “That depends; what’s a Euro-Gamer?”
Pat: “I noticed that the overall tone was very positive and sympathetic…”
Don: “Well, Steve had one rule–”
Pat: “No furries!”
Don: “Okay, two rules, that being the first one and the second, and only slightly less important, was don’t be mean.”
Pat: “Why no Pokemon or Crack the Gathering?”
Don: “Because everyone hates them.”
