POGO alum Nick Schwellenbach has been busy with graduate school, his new job and…with filming the online web series “Mopedlords,” slated to come out later this year.
Instead of working on homework one Saturday afternoon last fall, Nick created the Mopedlords story. It follows the trials and tribulations of a newcomer to a post-apocalyptic D.C., now known as New Columbia, which is ruled by moped gangs. Chase Cruz gets caught between two warring factions of the most powerful gang in D.C., the Mount Pleasant Marauders (sounds like a Pee Wee football team, but OK, we’ll go with it–you dudes are the big bad Marauders). Nick is making the film with Pablo Iglesias Maurer, Lucas Anderson, and other members of the DC Militia production collective (Sounds like…OK, we’ll go with it–you dudes are the big bad militia).
Here’s the official trailer:
