Who We Are:
My name is Bryan Jager, and I'm the creator of "The Spielers". Having spent much of the last three years in and around the Orlando theme park and theatre communities, I've had my fair share of spieling positions (and continue to to this day). There's this wonderful sense of comraderie amongst those who've had the chance to work some of the incredible attractions we get to lovingly skewer, and in putting this production together, I'm working with a number of past and present spielers to create the type of experience you only get from Orlando Fringe.
(Oh, and if you're looking for critical reviews of my work, an audience member once said I was a star, to which I replied: "I'm okay.")
When the leader of an expedition goes missing inside an ancient temple, it's up to a motley crew of tour guides to find him and save the world. Simply put, "The Spielers" is the early 2000s movie adaptation of some certain guided tour theme park rides we never asked for, complete with bad puns, gender neutral names, and a roster of modestly impressive special effects... When they work.
What the funds will go towards:
The $10,000 we've requested will be going towards the final production budget which includes travel and lodging expenses for our New York cast and crew, production values (sets, costumes, lights, puppets, special effects), an original score, and original animation sequences designed by local Orlando artists. Anything past that will be given to the cast/ crew so they can afford to eat slightly better brand of cat food. Thanks in advance, Fancy Feast!
