Critical Success Productions / Standard Action

Standard Action is a comedy-fantasy webseries inspired by table-top roleplaying and video games, and filled with enough nerdy pop culture references to keep everyone from the Tolkein fan to the Trekkie to the Browncoat entertained. The story follows four bumbling, inept adventurers – Edda the Elf Barbarian, Martin the Druid, Gwenevere the Sorcerer, and Fernando the Half-Halfling Bard. Outcast from their parties and not quite epic enough to find new ones, the four adventurers find each other, and embark on a chaotic quest that will test not only their fellowship, but everyone’s ideas of what a hero should be.

Critical Success Productions was born after the production of Season 1, to continue to develop and broaden the world of Standard Action into a Season 2, by Standard Action Producer Joanna Gaskell and Director Rob Hunt. Joanna is a Vancouver actor, writer and voiceover artist, and Rob an independent filmmaker, cinematographer, editor and special effects artist. To create the world of Standard Action, they welcomed onto their team actors Edwin Perez, who also donated his skills to costume design and associate production, Tara Pratt, and Daniel S. Johnston; associate producer, marketer and costume designer Vanessa Driveness; production designer and art director Carla Miller; key makeup artist, hair stylist and prosthetics artist Ashley Young; and the sound team of Eric Balac and Ishnu.

Standard Action has gained acclaim for its beautiful art, costumes and cinematography; its quirky characters and intelligent writing; its fantastic monsters; and the high calibre of its acting. Created as a passion piece by geeks, for geeks, it quickly gained a fan following, and its creators have appeared on panels across North America to discuss their minimalistic, super-flexible, many-hats approach to indy filmmaking. Hope to see you back for Season 2!

      The Gamers: Dorkness Rising

      All Lodge wants is for his gaming group to finish their adventure. Unfortunately, they're more interested in seducing barmaids, mooning their enemies, and setting random villagers on fire. Desperate to rein in his players, Lodge injects two newbies into the game: a non-player character controlled by Lodge, who the power gamers immediately distrust, and the rarest gamer of all — a girl. Can the group overcome their bickering to save the kingdom, or will the evil necromancer Mort Kemnon triumph unopposed? A parody of fantasy films and the adventure gaming community, The Gamers: Dorkness Rising is a hilarious romp through the world of sword and sorcery.
