Errata

Logline: This is a story about getting lost in your imagination. If only for a few hours while spending quality board-game time with friends. Visually dynamic, each episode plays out in the fantasy world of a board game while also linking the struggles of these characters to the real world they live in.

Elevator Pitch:

Life gets busy. Then, every so often something happens, a new relationship, a wedding, the loss of a job, or an epic holiday party. “Errata” focuses on those life changing events and highlights the ways in which these best-friends deal with them during their weekly game night.

Each episode features a different board game, which allows for dramatic and varied shifts in genre and tone as the stories deal with different subject matter. Certain games will lend themselves to a specific brand of storytelling, while others leave the door open to avant-garde or abstracted interpretations.

Production Team:

Kristy Richman – Executive Creative Producer
Nathan Hong Fisher – Writer & Director
Mikey Boyne – Director of Photography
Olivia Gallie – First Assistant Director
Kym Luckas – Sound
Sarah Francavilla – Hair & Makeup

About the Film:

We love telling stories and we love board games. The microcosm of a board game, to us, celebrates the victories, losses, competition and fun of all that life has to offer. This series embodies that. “Errata” comes from the hours we have spent sitting around a table with our own friends playing games, having fun, and in between the smack talk, strengthening the bonds between us. “Errata” examines the refuge of a game night with friends and family to create a safe place for the audience to escape to and have fun with these characters and stories.
