AVGN Movie Update – October 2013

James / October 13th, 2013

We want to get more fans in the AVGN movie! We’ve already had fans appear on set with us and meet us, but this is a different scene. It’s one that you film yourself.


There’s a scene where various people are shown talking on their webcams, responding to the Nerd’s videos. The purpose of the scene is to establish the world and show that the Nerd is a guy online who reviews games, and has fans. Not any different from real life. We feel the scene could be better by showing real fans around the world, speaking on their webcams.


You can be creative with it. Here’s some things that may help in our selections.

  • * Be excited about the Nerd’s videos.
  • * Tell us why you’re the biggest fan.
  • * Request E.T. Why hasn’t the Nerd done E.T. Yet? Tell him how bad the game is.
  • * Say where you’re from. A country or a major city that you’re near.
  • * A webcam or video camera is fine. Doesn’t matter. Just speak to the camera.
  • * Make sure the image quality is decent. Not too dark.
  • * Make sure the audio is clear. No loud background noises.
  • * No brand name shirts or large posters/images in background that show established franchises, trademarks, or logos.


Upload it on your YouTube channel or Blip, Vimeo, whatever you want. Just set it to private or unlisted. Email us the link at [email protected]. I’ll be looking at them by the end of the month. Send them no later than October 27th. If we select yours, we will email you back and talk further.


Also, on a completely separate note, we can still use any VFX help. Send your info to the same email.


The posters are for sale at ScrewAttackStore.com

    finally my comment is showing up

    Wow! This is a great addition to the movie. Thanks for taking the time to make us all a part of this. I’m brainstorming my submission now!!!!

    No brand names?

    Does this mean I cannot show stuff like NES-carts in the video?

    • DMM_poo

      October 13, 2013 at 3:35 pm

      I would imagine that as long as you can’t read titles, it would be fine.

    I wonder if Conan is a fan of AVGN. . .he’s obviously a gamer (I hope you all have seen his Clueless Gamer reviews). would be awesome to see him send a video to James in the style of one of his “Conan’s vlog” skits. Random celebrity cameos are awesome!

    • joliet_jane

      October 13, 2013 at 3:43 pm

      Conan’s web guy Aaron Bleyaert probably is.

      • Stephan Jackson

        October 13, 2013 at 7:13 pm

        I’d totally accept that

  • October 13, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    I can’t wait for the movie !

  • Lodmot

    October 13, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    May we wear our AVGN merchandise? xD

  • October 13, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    Just checked back to the site again to watch some old videos and saw this! Thanks for all the videos! This is a really cool idea James! I’ll get to work on my submission! Keep up the great work man!

  • luke plaister

    hey i can have an email when the signed avgn posters are back in stock thanks

  • mysterywolf

    October 13, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    A perfect idea: make a video about wanting to be the first to post on a new video and go overacting about it when you get it/don’t get it. Seems to be a running gag at this point.

  • Connor Naughton

    October 13, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    So how do we get the autographed posters? I’ve found the unsigned ones, but where are the signed ones?

  • joliet_jane

    October 13, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    I got one of those signed posters. I put it up as soon as I got it. Wow, both James /and/ the Nerd to signed it! 2 for 1!

  • October 13, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Gonna film mine tomorrow! 🙂

  • October 13, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    cant wait till it comesout….im patiently waitin

  • October 13, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Oh yeah. I’m going to try and get in on this. I’ve got a really great idea I want to use. Wouldn’t that be some shit if I actually made it into the movie?

  • dpolsrod

    October 13, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    I know you said no brands, but would it be okay to have a Rolling Rock beer bottle in the shot? 🙂 I’m assuming that Rolling Rock is already being used in the movie. 😉

  • October 13, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Do you need/want videos with foreign language or American/english only?
    Do you want the guies to talk about AVGN or to talk to you directly?

  • October 13, 2013 at 5:33 pm

    oh my god! this is awesome! I am definitely going to submit!

  • October 13, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    This rocks. You should get The Nostalgia Critic and just show one of his clips where he explodes, right in the middle of all the AVGN fan videos.

  • Argentines_dont_wear_sombreros

    October 13, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    I don’t know if I’m gonna do a video, but i’m wondering if I have to speak in english or is it better to speak in argentine spanish…

    • Argentines_dont_wear_sombreros

      October 13, 2013 at 7:59 pm

      dang, somebody already asked this.

  • rockerdude22

    October 13, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    Just did my submission and sent it to the e-mail address, James! Can’t wait til the movie’s done!

  • marc_lawson

    October 13, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    This is a great idea.

  • Kieran St James

    October 13, 2013 at 11:53 pm

    We are so gonna bury you in videos.
    Expect at least one from me.

    This is awesome. 😀

  • ItEm

    October 14, 2013 at 12:37 am

    Does it have to be in english or could it be in spanish with english subs? Thanks!

    • jim dove

      October 14, 2013 at 8:11 am

      LOL that would be hilarious

  • October 14, 2013 at 1:03 am

    Can’t have the poster in the background because it wouldn’t make sense?

    Didn’t stop the Double Dragon movie from having the arcade game in the background.

  • Roberto Espinosa

    October 14, 2013 at 3:47 am

    I had an idea to put all my E.T. merch in the background since I am a fan and just explain why the Nerd hasn’t done the video game yet. No posters but I do have multiple copies of the movie that I was planning to put in the background. Could that still work as long as they are out of focus?

  • October 14, 2013 at 3:54 am

    Hi, i’m from Mexico, and i have the idea of sending the video but in spanish, about ET, it would be cool to show videos of different lenguages to set how far the nerd has gone, not just the english speaking countries… what you think?

  • October 14, 2013 at 7:22 am

    So exciting!

    Are we supposed to be addressing The Nerd directly?

    Can we mention different video game consoles?

  • jim dove

    October 14, 2013 at 8:11 am

    Theres going to be some fucked up weirdness sent in. I hope a few of the best ones are shown on here once the film has been released. Do you realise what you have unleashed James? Asking internet ppl to send in videos will result in things you CANNOT UNSEE.

  • Dylan Spallin

    October 14, 2013 at 9:52 am

    Very excited for my signed poster, waiting patiently. 🙂
    Can’t wait for the AVGN movie! I’ll try and get a video clip together.

  • BladeRunner

    October 14, 2013 at 10:28 am

    cool, I might try and get a video together for this.

  • Uncle Sporkums

    October 14, 2013 at 11:07 am

    WOW, James! You are so generous to your fans!

  • SGold93

    October 14, 2013 at 11:36 am

    I think I have something in mind… Not too over the top though. Simple yet heartfelt ( and kinda funny) hope it works.

  • October 14, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    Sent my submission! Luckily I didn’t disturb my neighbors because I yelled pretty loud 😛

  • SGold93

    October 14, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    Sent in my submission! If it seems like I’m nervous… Well… I was … And I never made a video like that before. I don’t think it’s bad… Especially being my first video…. I hope you like it.

  • punkbikerdude

    October 14, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    The posters came out kind of dark. I was thinking maybe the image file that was sent for printing might not have been fixed in CMYK beforehand. It might be something to keep in mind for future prints.

    • Lukas Sprehn

      December 30, 2013 at 2:52 pm

      Yeah, I noticed the same thing. I can barely see anything at the top. The giant robotic man’s wings are pretty much nonexisting without sticking a flashlight up close on them. Very odd! I don’t want to question whether James have done us a disservice with these poster prints, mainly because James didn’t print them at all, ScrewAttack or a princing company did it for ScrewAttack, and then ScrewAttack shipped them to James for him to sign, and he shipped them back to them so that they could ship them out to the buyers. I don’t want to demand a refund or replacement for my poster because I realize that my order supports James and helps with the movie, but it would be incredibly nice to have a fixed version of the poster.

  • Ben_from_G-town

    October 14, 2013 at 6:47 pm

    Very cool, James. This is a nice opportunity for fans to be an even bigger part of the movie! I look forward to future progress reports!

  • Jackred89

    October 14, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    Hello I want to try getting in it but my video was too big to send. Can I make a short YouTube video then link you instead? I’m a big fan of your work for a couple of years.

    • October 14, 2013 at 11:20 pm

      Wasn’t that what he asked for? Put it on YouTube / Blip / Vimeo and send a link.

  • SGold93

    October 14, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    If you receive 2 emails from me I apologize. I did mark my video unlisted but I ended up having 12 views which makes no sense. So disregard one of the emails because I switched it to private.

    • SGold93

      October 14, 2013 at 8:50 pm

      Then I switched it back to unlisted… I don’t why I’m getting so many views on it though. It’s marked unlisted and as I said before… If you receive 2 emails from me just delete one.

  • RectalTerror

    October 15, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    “le joueur du grenier” should definitely do one

  • October 16, 2013 at 11:45 am

    Awesome idea! Sent you my clip. Hope it makes it to the final cut!

    October 25, 2013 at 5:44 am

    … hope we’ll show up 🙂

  • October 26, 2013 at 10:38 am

    wow, this is really awesome

  • Thifurious

    October 27, 2013 at 10:38 pm

    Just submitted my clip. Really hope you like it 🙂

  • Silvershade

    October 27, 2013 at 11:28 pm

    Just sent mine like last minute, stupid procrastination XD. Hope it helps.

    • October 31, 2013 at 7:07 pm

      Sent mine last minute as well! Wasn’t all that great or interesting but was just submitting for the sake of saying I tried and contributed! Good luck!

    November 18, 2013 at 9:55 am

    Are you guys still accepting videos for this?

  • November 27, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    would you believe for me to get a copy of the worst game ever was $10? that bullshit. yes. ive played that horrible abomination. yet I had to see for myself, before a nerd video, how bad it really was. truth is, this game killed video games. I had to play it to believe it. I cant believe I disgraced my Atari just to play it. but I cant even refer to it by name. its in storage somewhere now. I don’t care if it ever gets lost..
    anyway, keep up the good work, cant wait for the movie, ya im late, which is why I chose to comment as opposed to post a video.
    all the best.

    Its been roughly 8 years since I saw my first avgn video. 8 years of laughter and tears. In that time Ive graduated high school and lost and gained roughly 100 lbs. And in that time Ive always had this site and its videos to go back to. I only found out about the movie recently, due to life and work absorbing my time, and Im blown away. James, Mr Rolfe you have been a constant inspiration and source of entertainment in my life that I can not begin to imagine not having. I await the Avgn movie in exasperated glee. Now as always your loyal if sometimes absent fan. Grady B Olson.
