Doctor Kong - a short documentary by Alexis Neophytides
on 1/16/2011 7:13:44 PM
Hi everyone,

As many of you know, Alexis Neophytides (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1122991/), a talented actress and filmmaker has been filming and documenting my Donkey Kong journey. Shortly after my first million point game of Donkey Kong in September 2009, I knew the Donkey Kong world record was within my grasp. She approached me with the idea of making a documentary about me. The documentary covers my life from the November 2009 Funspot gathering to when I obtained the world record in February of 2010 and the aftermath that followed.

I had a chance to watch the documentary recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. The film is completely drama free, completely accurate and very professional. I would classify it as a feel good comedy. Many of you on these forums have a cameo in the film and there is a lot of never seen before footage.

There will be a trailer available shortly at http://www.doctorkongthemovie.com. Commemorative/promotional postcards were distributed at the Tron Off and several people were kind enough to bring them back to their local arcade (Ground Kontrol, Funspot, Stella's, Richie Knucklez).

The first 2 screenings have been scheduled. The premiere will be at The Gutter in Brooklyn, NY next month and there will be a 2nd screening the Friday before the Kong Off at Richie Knucklez in Flemington, NJ.

I believe the screenings will be for free and a DVD will be available for purchase afterwards (price to be determined). If you enjoy the documentary, please support my friend, filmmaker and fan by buying a DVD afterwards. She has captured a crucial period in my journey at her own personal expense.
