Raider: The Adaptation

Some kids spent 7 years making an adaptation of Raiders of the Lost Ark with no money, just dedication and ingenuity. theferret makes it sound like tremendous fun.

Unfortunately, it isn't playing anywhere near Philadelphia, but some of you may be able to see it. I can only hope that it will come out of DVD or get played at an sf convention I'm attending.
