AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows is featured in the “Die Noobs”, an upcoming documentary portrait of two casual gamers who set their sights on winning a professional gaming tournament.
A clip from the film in which M. Shadows talks about being competitive, the music in Zelda, the different music he listens to and more, can be seen below. The clip also features footage of M. Shadows at Major League Gaming’s Spring Championship in Anaheim, California.
An inside look at one of the world’s fastest growing professional sports, “Die Noobs” will feature exclusive insight from some of the top pro gamers across the globe as they attempt to teach a couple of “noobs” how to become masters.
Erik Cieslewicz, a recipient of an Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative journalism, and one of the most respected up-and-coming filmmakers in Washington D.C., has captured the humorous and fascinating journey in a groundbreaking format. Cieslewicz describes his unique vision as “If ‘Rocky’ and ‘The Office’ and Reddit made love, it would be this film: accessible, funny and a little geeky.”
The heart-pounding and hyper-kinetic documentary follows gamers Babyjinx and Anubis, the aliases of the film’s two subjects, as they dive head first into expert strategies, touching relationships and immense hangovers. The result will be a rare and highly entertaining study of a fascinating sport. “Die Noobs” will charm fans of films like “King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters” or “Chasing Ghosts: Beyond The Arcade”, by delving into the explosive world of modern eSports and its most popular title: Stracraft 2.
The film will feature a soundtrack of pumping electronic music from YouTube sensation Pin Panelle and other artists that will, according to Cieslewicz, “rip your head off.”
Due in 2014, “Die Noobs” will leave audiences “laughing hysterically and motivated to win multiple championships.”
