Join us this Saturday and Sunday at 4 PM Pacific time for a special edition of The Event Horizon, when hosts Susan Fox and Gene Turnbow welcome Betrayal at Krondor game designer Neal Hallford, and Susy Botello, the founder of the International Mobile Film Festival, to the show to talk about the new Betrayal at Krondor Fan Film Challenge.

I’ve lived for a long time between the creative junctions of words, sounds, music, and pictures. For many people, I live entirely in the particular intersection in which they met me, so they know me as Neal the Game Designer, or Neal the Filmmaker, or Neal the Audio Producer, or Neal the Dude Who Really Hates Pickles. But starting next Saturday, (most of) my worlds will intersect for the kickoff of the Betrayal at Krondor Fan Film Challenge. From March 11th – May 12th, we’ll be inviting our friends, fellow gamers, and indie filmmakers to submit their short films – between three to five minutes – for consideration to win the Gauntlet of Glory, our best-of-show award.

You can learn more about the challenge, the rules, the game upon which the films need to be based, the identities of the judges, and where you can submit at our official website at

I’m looking forward to seeing the end-product of your creative energies!

— Neal Hallford
