Early this fall, a television movie project visited SCAD-Atlanta and Georgia Gwinnett College to film some scenes.
Known during projection by its working title “Gamers,” the television movie is now billed as “Game of Your Life,” and stars Titus Makin Jr. of “Glee” fame as a young computer whiz. It also stars actress Lea Thompson, known for her roles in the movie “Back to the Future” and sitcom “Caroline in the City.”
You can watch it on WXIA at 8 Friday night.
If you tune in, keep your eyes peeled for SCAD students and interactive design and game development professor David Spencer, who may appear in some frames, essentially playing themselves.
The project also filmed at Georgia Gwinnett College.
“GGC was a great location to film this movie because it embraces all of the qualities of a high-end scholastic environment in an idyllic setting,” David Rosemont, executive producer of HCP Productions II, told us in an email.
The school told us in an email that “the movie’s topic may foreshadow the future for some GGC students, as the college will soon introduce a gaming concentration in its information technology major.”
“Gaming technology is important to the economic development of Gwinnett County and the Atlanta region,” Thomas Mundie, dean of the School of Science and Technology, said in the email. “Graduates with this expertise are in demand here and elsewhere, as the field continues to expand rapidly.”
Go SCAD and GGC!
