Chuck is shooting a pilot! "More Than a Game" is a reality show about the competitors in the pro gaming world. When they're not competing for millions of dollars they have jobs, school, plus friends and family to see, and they struggle to balance these two worlds. We're raising funds for meals for our crew and talent. If you can throw us a few dollars (or more) we would greatly appreciate it!

Actors, do you need taping services in Atlanta? Head to Frat Pack Productions! Are you auditioning for a show like The Walking Dead or Stranger Things? Tape with actors from those shows or similar projects instead of just getting shoved into an empty room and left to your own devices. Plus, they're open 7 days a week!

Make sure to check out the great local project "The Red Cape" - a short drama from local producer Brendon Murphy.  A young black boy and his father struggle to survive the 1898 Wilmington Race Riot - the only proven violent overthrow of a government in US History. Follow the project at!
