To Portray Hackers More Realistically

I caught word of this one via Boing! Boing!  A movie about hackers that would more accurately depict them.  I was enticed enough to surf to the movie’s Kickstarter Page.  I thought well enough of the trailer to embed it below. The Root Kit does look to be a movie I would want to see.  I also think I like the short description:

“Rogue computer hackers discover a plot to monitor everyone on the Internet. They fight back.”

They don’t have much time left and a good way to go.  Please, if you can, give this one  a thought, a tweet or a few dollars.

I must warn you I am extremely biased on this one.  First, I love Boing! Boing!  Second, I love Cory Doctorow who pointed this one out in a post at Boing! Boing!  I love independent film.  I also loved Mad Max and I love zombie movies… Admit it, even if they are bad, they are still good.

So how could an independent-indie-go-go-funded-zombies-meets-Mad-Max movie ever go wrong?  Well, when I first got wind of this, they still needed some kick starter cash and, by the time of this draft, they reached their goal.  I guess that means at least a few others feel the same way.
