The Sarkeesian Effect Trailer is out at last! Watch it here!

Cinema history is being made today! Just not here.
Cinema history is being made today! Just not here.

The wait is over! The Sarkeesian Effect Trailer is out at last! So, without further ado, here it is:

Sorry for any confusion. “The Sarkeesian Effect Trailer” is the name of my new 43 second long film, starring the top of my head, and a very special guest I was lucky to be able to have the opportunity to film: my cat Sweetie Pie Jonus. (My other cat, Pantz, was in the other room.)

I handled the audio and the cinematography. My cats helped with the set dressing.

I hope you enjoyed it.

Oh, and by the way, The Sarkeesian Effect: Official Trailer #1 is also out as well. You know, the one put together by those other guys. You’ll be pleased to see that The Empty Pizza Box made the final cut!

I have to say, those guys don’t really seem to know what they’re doing.

Knowledge is optional.

Grifting grudge-holding man-babies is mandatory.

I like Elam saying “it’s all about ideology.” Look at yourselves!

Jonus does look pretty intimidated in that shot.

Jack Thompson, “Ex-Attorney?” They actually put “ex-attorney” in his description–as in, ex-attorney because he was disbarred in Florida for false statements and harassing behavior? Very credible, dudes!

Both Paul Elam and Aaron Clarey.

I wonder what the stalkery douchesquid who’s been harassing David on Twitter because the media referred to Clarey as an MRA has to say about that. Probably “Please ban SFHC for noticing that.”

Your trailer needs more skulls, David.

What’s with the lady at 0:22 through 0:24 in the (hilariously real) trailer? “The games are fantasy, but the threat of violence …” BZZZT. Why didn’t they let her finish her sentence there? The threat of violence is real? That sounds like what she was going to say. Is that bad editing, or disingenuous editing?

I loled when Alex Hinkley was billed as a “Wikipedia editor.” It’s like they felt obligated to have two bylines for him, so they pulled one of them out of their asses. I mean, hell, I’m a Wikipedia editor. Isn’t everyone?

I consulted google to find out if that had some kind of special meaning, and discovered a tweet by Alex Hinkley saying he’d been permabanned from Wikipedia. I reckon “ex-Wikipedia editor” didn’t have the same ring?

Also: Angry Birds merchandise (mug?). Isn’t Angry Birds one of #GamerGate’s favourite ways to handwave away female gamers?

I can’t believe they really for real put Paul Elam — PAUL ELAM — in the trailer saying “It’s always about money and ideology. Money first and ideology a close second.”

I mean, come on.

Are we sure this wasn’t a trailer made by someone who had access to all of their footage, but wanted to make them look bad?

But not him. Because he’s banned!

it was quite entertaining to watch the real trailer without sound. I had to laugh, when Elam was filmed.

It’s about money first… ideology maybe a close second.

Paulie’s p-p-p-Projecting!

Also, can anyone get a legible screenshot of Owen’s notepad? I wonder what he’s got written on there?

Do microaggressions exist in Sub-Saharan Africa?

Whut? What has that got to do with anything?

MRAsshat: “Gotcha, Feminists!”

Feminists: Yeeeaah, cool story, bro.

Paul Elam’s line was pretty special. The rest makes it look like the entire “documentary” is going to just consist of a bunch of talking heads they could find to bad-mouth Sarkeesian. It’s going to be the most spintastic movie since Expelled, except they won’t even have lines from the person they’re attacking.

Oh no, she tunrs off comment sections on her own channel! That makes her evil and impervius to criticism! *GASP*

By the by, I thought this “documentary” was supposed to be about a more general gestalt around SJWs and their tactics, and not just a hit-piece on Sarkeesian. And yet the trailer appears to be entirely focused on her. I mean, from the trailer it looks like the most substantive argument is going to be “Sarkeesian doesn’t listen to us when we call her wrong and we’re FURIOUS about it.”

Owen’s shoe and scrunched white sock at 1:07. Amazing. It needs a credit in the film.

@AltoFronto:

That bit about microagressions is a fallacy with a brand new name: the Dear Muslima argument. They’re trying to paint all of feminist concerns as First World Problems that are insignificant and not worth talking about as long as other people have it worse.

I feel ripped off. Here it is all about the inside world of social justice warriors and not one mention of social justice mages like me! I CALL FOUL. Don’t make me call fowl! *hides from her own bad pun*

I’m a bit confused, why include Jack Thompson at all? He seems to have spent the better part of several decades witch hunting various media (video games, music etc.) on morality issues like violence and explicit content… and generally being a toad, but a toad none the less litigious towards vidya game violence.

I’ve actually forgotten what the “Sarkeesian effect” is supposed to be, and the trailer certainly didn’t jog my memory. It had something to do with her fundraising, didn’t it?

“We’ve spent the last five months … interviewing both sides of the argument: Men’s Rights Activists and pick-up artists.”

Small nitpick in context, but why on earth is it so important to Aurini and Owen that they appear in every shot, awkwardly angled and looking across at their interviewee? (Hint: the answer is ego). But seriously, if you want the focus to be on what this person is saying, give us a talking head and GET OUT OF THE GODDAMN SHOT.

Dave, I didn’t realize you had such a nice head of hair.

Which is, of course, more significant than anything in seen in the twin idiots trailer.

G’day all, not to derail but I see AVFM is cancelling their conference. What a shame. So much potential great mockery, lost forever.

What I’m getting is that a bunch of people sit around whining about Anita Sarkeesian wanting special treatment and advocating censorship without actually showing any clips from her videos, speeches, and interviews to back that claim up.

It’ll be a travesty if they don’t get the Oscar for best documentary s/

Pfft. SJ mages think they have it bad? Do you think there’s even such a thing as micro aggressions for social justice ranger/assassin/bards?

“It’s always about money, and then ideology.”

Really Paul Elam? You, of all people, are going to go and criticize someone about being overly focused on *money* and their *ideology*? Really? You may be a terrible human being, but I cannot criticize the giant, massive balls you must have to make a statement like that. I wonder how many takes it took, with both of them continually breaking out into snickers.

…What a bizarre and strange world we live in where people claiming to support gaming are reaching out to Jack Thompson for help. Were these two idiots around in the 90’s? Do they know what he tried to pull? At best, Thompson was on a crusade to censor huge swathes of gaming, at worst he wanted to make as much of it *illegal* as possible. And he was notorious for trying to use spurious litigation to lash out at his detractors. He’s everything they claim Anitia Sarkeesian is, except he actually did it and he actually posed a real, political threat to gaming in his time. It’s almost as if these two don’t really care much about gaming or its history and are just trying to latch onto events connected to it to further their own agenda.

Also, in general to the kind of people who support this video. You can totally criticize Anita Sarkeesian. It’s completely allowed. You can disagree with her and raise those issues, I know I don’t agree with 100% of what she says. But, and I can’t stress this enough, death threats, rape threats, calling her the worst possible names you can think of and making flash games about beating her to within an inch of her life, are not actually a form of criticism. The *only* reason she’s become as big a name as she has is because of the aforementioned people who threatened and harassed her. She is the monster you guys created. If no one would have freaked out and treated her like shit, she would have made her videos, had her say, and this would all be over and done with. It just seems kind of hypocritical to portray her as some sort of huge, monstrous entity on the gaming landscape, when these people and those like them, are literally the only reason she’s gained the prominence that she has. This whole thing with Anita Sarkeesian has just become one giant snake, constantly eating its own tail, and then getting offended that the tail is trying to choke it to death.
