Crafting Arzium Documentary – An Intimate Look into Designing a New Board Game

I am excited to announce my latest film project: Crafting Arzium. I am serving as a producer and working with the amazing Eric Rayl, director of The Game Designers.

Crafting Arzium is a feature-length documentary that takes an intimate look into the design process of Ryan Laukat and Malorie Laukat — the core team behind Red Raven Games. You will be taken into Ryan and Malorie’s world as they imagine, create, live, and struggle to come up with their next great board game.

I am honored to be a part of the project and I am really excited to share this window into the board game design process. I love board games and what they mean to me over my life. It is amazing what Eric Rayl has captured. To me, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see it happen as it happens.
