On Saturday 3/27, Juan, Victor, Ethan Gilsdorf (Author of Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks) and Sean Stalzer (President and CEO of The Syndicate) held a panel as part of the PAX East conference.

We are very excited to announce Second Skin premiers tomorrow December 8th at 10PM on Current TV all accross the United States.  They changed the name to My Gaming Addiction so it grabs more attention as people flip channels.  Luckily we are told they have not reedited the film accept to add commercials.  Needless to say, we are thrilled the film will be getting out to such a huge audience.  Tell you friends, because the more people who watch it the heavier rotation it will get.

At times it's intense and uncomfortable, at others it's touching and heartwarming, but from start to finish it's an utterly fascinating exploration of society, escapism, and the bonds we build and break in online games. Second Skin can be appreciated by gamers and non-gamers alike, and will give you plenty of stuff to discuss - or just to think about.
