Hi everyone!

As some of you may know, I've been working on a small indy film: The Immortal Augustus Gladstone. Augustus is a man who...

A. Owns a peculiar library.
B. Lives in an abandoned and lonely environment.
C. Is an all around nice guy.
D. Claims to have fantastical powers.

Wow! I seem to be in a real creative rut!!!

Actually, the film is really nothing like Myst... but I really hope you'll enjoy it!!!

I continue to be endlessly appreciative of all you Myst fans and I thought it appropriate to release our teaser trailer to the Myst community before we release it anywhere else... as sort of a pre-release viewing. Please keep it under your hats. Thanks!

To those who enjoyed the Myst and Riven music.. if you recognize a similarity to Myst music, it's because I wrote the music for the trailer (as well as the soundtrack for the film). We also have some incredible third party pieces in the film!

And let me know what questions you have... if any. :-)

Very sincerely to all of you,
Robyn (Miller)

Oh, a reference you to "yourself" or to your bro... I mean, Atrus? :D

Fantastic trailer Robyn! There's no doubt in my mind that this movie is one of "my" must see films of 2013! Super pumped!!! :D

Okay, after much pondering, I've come up with a question...
In the trailer, it shows multiple shots of a gravestone. Does... does this mean Augustus died after he ran off last year? :(

Hm, that's a hard one to directly answer. Or I mean, I guess the answer is kind of complicated. Plus I don't wan to ruin anything. :-)

Thanks for sharing this with us first, Robyn ... :)

I'm very impressed by this guy and everything he's saying and is claiming to have experienced
is absolutely possible ... I wonder if he decided to finally put an end to his very looong journey or
just felt to move on after the much appreciated experiences and friendship with you and the crew ... :P

I'm really looking forward to seeing the whole film and what you'll be coming up with around all the
magical and mysterious stuff and happenings around his extraordinary life as far as it was possible
to be discovered and unveiled by you all, and how you're going to interpret and present this all as far
as your personal conception and understanding of all of this is concerned ...

And in case this is all made up, just for the sake of making an extraordinary and interesting film,
this is quite professionally and nicely initiated and introduced in a gradual manner ... Great job ...
Yeah, I'm wishing you all much luck, success and fun further on ... :D

Very nice! I'll be looking out for the awards. ;)

It's possible Augustus had his own gravestone engraved for his own purposes, but is still alive. Or it's part of some conceit for the production, such as a fantasy sequence. How am I doing?

An interesting character presented in an interesting fashion. Am I the only one who's gonna feel sad to have the big reveal of who he is? :D Nothing quite like maintaining an aura of mystery...

There seems to be a bit of Forrest Gump in this, or Little Big Man, or some of Brad Pitt from Twelve Monkeys, and a smidgen of Blair Witch (film crew is part of the story)? ;)

Hi...

Well tonight we decided to take the trailer live. And it now is! We'll see what people think. It's at our film blog and on vimeo so thanks for keeping the secret for a whole day. :-)

Thanks so much for taking a look!

Sincerely,
Robyn

Is this a documentary or fiction? It is interesting none the less.

Yes. Fictional documentary.

The cast list is interesting. ;)
