When Woz appeared on Dancing with the Stars, you may have noticed this shirt. Funny, but what’s it mean?
Geeks on Board is a feature-length doc that was shot in 2004 on a 7-day Caribbean “Geek Cruise” using only prosumer gear, including a Panasonic DVX100A. I found out about the doc as it was being filmed because my wife was actually on that MacMania III cruise (my father-in-law is a big Machead).
The doc, which was cut together using only 27 hours of footage, didn’t receive wide distribution at the time. However, filmmakers Abe Forman-Greenwald (currently producing “In Their Boots“) and Nate Smith (drummer for the band Shy Child) eventually self-published their work via CreateSpace.
Best part, imho, is what’s around the corner. Says Abe:
We want to make all of our raw footage from the cruise available through a Creative Commons license so that anyone who is interested in repurposing the footage can do so.
Here’s an outtake of Woz explaining his relationship with gaming, followed by the trailer:
