Faintheart

Faintheart...

Just come across this. Is there any liklihood that it will portray re-enactors sympathetically or pander to every stereotype it can lay its hands on?

insulting words towards any one, for neither the one nor the other in any
way diminishes the strength of the enemy." Niccolo Machiavelli

At little bit of both

It's supposed to be a romantic comedy that revolves heavily round a vike re-enactor losing his family and going on some quest to win them back.

Could be good could be bad

All I know is they filmed some of it in the pub I work at. fortunately I was not working so the extra reinforced lenses were not needed

Personally if you can poke fun at yourself and can accept that some people do think you are actually nuts is a good thing. This I believe is empowering and allows acceptance by other people who may just write reenactors off as being a bit up their own *rse ! :lol:

Well it protrays ME quite sympathetically. I look half-decent in the trailer, but then I am stood next to Shadrake so that's no surprise. :wink:

It shows us as what we are; a cross section of all society who sometimes let our hobby verge on an obsession that can get in the way of other aspects of our life.

Oh, and it's got Thorfinn Skullsplitter in it...who CARES about anything else?
