A Filthy Lot Entertainment is a relatively new North Vancouver based company who encourages content creators to just do it. A Filthy Questline is one of their three channels (the others are the main, an anything goes, and comedy channel) where talents can show off their love for pop culture. Whether that’d be with comic book movies, board games, video games or role-playing, there’s a lot more to this company than meets the eye.

Christopher Livingston is the CEO and Trevor Gemma is the CCO of this company. Before creating this company, they both had careers in the local film/television scene. The former was a lighting technician but he wanted to produce. Part of his credits include The Killing, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl and Pirates of the Caribbean 5. The latter was an actor with the desire to craft his own productions. From a local cult hit Gutterballs to The Little Mermaid, a horror film, to Riese the Series (web) his success was as varied as the wind that guides him. The two met during production of Riese

“It was a magical little web series everyone became friends on, which doesn’t happen very often in the film. I’ve made a lot of long-term friends there, including Chris, Nadav, and Mischa, who were with us when we started the company,” said Gemma.

The Deets on AFL’s Ready to Roll D&D Debut!

A Filthy Lot Entertainment Inc (AFL) is “Ready to Roll” with their in-house team playing Dungeons and Dragons. The watch party will begin on National D&D Day, Nov 5th, at 3:30pm (PST) on Twitch! They’ll also offer some pretty cool prizes post episode for those who can answer the tough trivia. Who knows, maybe the answers are tucked within the reveals in the information presented here too. 

Instead of bringing recognizable personalities to play the game on YouTube, this show brings talents from all walks of life together–mostly those who moved to Vancouver, BC to pursue a career in the film or entertainment industry–to enjoy the game as its always been designed for: to have fun, sling a sword and throw spells around. “They tried in the past with a cartoon and a movie in 2002 to make D&D into a cinematic experience, but the biggest mistake is that they scripted it. D&D is often improvised,” said Chris Livingston and Trevor Gemma, founders of this company.

What will be presented is how ‘As the world of Altero turns.’ Roz Young and Matt Baker created this techno-fantasy realm that the AFL senior staff took a liking to and want to realize as a series. “The main global conflict is the fight for technology and magic dominance, related control over the portals that link parts of this world for fast travel but also to the alternate dimension, where tech can be fused with magic,” said the creators. “Orleana is the country that controls most of the portals and the link from Altero Nought to Altero Prime.”

How Much do We Want to Believe? Haunted Objects Part Two

6 Oct

Are Ouija boards the real deal? It’s tough to say when Spiritualists swear by it, occultists warn about being careful in what you seek, and mediums say as long as you perform the right ceremonies before and after use, it’s safe. This means having the right mindset, if not wards of protection up. Other caveats are to say “goodbye” before removing your finger from the planchette (which is nicely included in this video) and politely ask that those entities not follow you home afterwards. 

The We Want to Believe team (also known as Canadian Paranormal Foundation) had a fun time with this board in part two of Haunted Objects. They used an old one that was allegedly destroyed; it repaired itself the next day. They used it to communicate with those entities said to be connected with it. Instead of following up with the items they were investigating in part one, this next episode examines new objects. This episode is a different kind of watch given the jovial energy the group was putting out. If any nasty ghost was there, it’d flee instead of throwing a poltergeist tantrum.
