Sons of StarCraft, documentary on StarCraft 2 casting duo Tasteless and Artosis, gets a fantastic trailer

Just before the GSL Finals last night, casters Nick “Tasteless” Plott and Dan “Artosis” Stemkoski unveiled the trailer for the upcoming documentary about their lives and work, Sons of StarCraft. It’s quite well done, and suggests that it might be the top nerd date movie of next spring. Part bromance, part history of the professional StarCraft scene, Sons of StarCraft looks irresistible to anyone who has come to learn the sport through Tastosis’ superb casting.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

It had me at Purity Ring’s “Lofticries”. More seriously, I’m excited to learn more about the past and present of StarCraft’s best casters. Tasteless and Artosis don’t just have good delivery, it’s the depth of the analysis and awareness of StarCraft’s history that sets them apart. They don’t just call matches but, in many cases, change your appreciation and understanding of the game.

It’s easy to forget, watching them dressed in suits and tuxedos, calling matches from the GOMTV studio, how unimaginable their lives and careers were just fourteen years ago. It’s good to be reminded of just how much risk and uncertainty these two faced as the StarCraft community changed and grew around them.

Sons of StarCraft is slated for a spring, 2013 release and is directed by Jeff Alejos.
