Slash Trailer

"You write sex like a 12-year-old, and I think you know it. Have you ever even had sex?" Gravitas Ventures has released a trailer for an indie film called Slash, derived from the term "slash fiction" about a couple of gamer geeks who are in for an emotional thrill when their own fan fiction (aka "fan fic") becomes real life. This is actually a goofy, funky coming-of-age story about two youngsters who fall for each other over this "fan fic". The film stars Michael Johnston, Hannah Marks, Violett Beane, and Michael Ian Black. There's a few awkward scenes of them actually reading the erotic fan fic, and the rest of it is pretty cheesy. Not sure if this will be any good unless you are really into the nerdy fan fic scene, but have a look anyway.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster art) for Clay Liford's Slash, direct from YouTube:

Freshman Neil's Vanguard stories are all he cares about… until he meets the older Julia, who pushes him to put his own fan fic online. When the website's moderator takes a special interest in Neil's work, it opens up a whole new universe. Slash is both written and directed by American cinematographer, editor and filmmaker Clay Liford, of the films Wuss, Earthling and A Four Course Meal previously. This film first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, and also played at the Montclair, Seattle, Munich, Edinburgh, Fantasia Film Festivals as well as BAMcinemaFest. Gravitas Ventures will release Clay Liford's Slash in select theaters + on VOD starting December 9th this fall. Anyone interested in seeing this film?

Well....that's a shame. Promising premise, however the acting looks TERRIBLE. I'm all for indie films...but just doesn't work out.

I hope they enjoyed making this. I just couldn't feel interest while watching the trailer. But I secretly admire to the makers of this funny little flick ...
