Man On A Mission Premiers
In Jan 2012, Richard Garriott (aka Lord British) was featured in a documentary entitled Man On A Mission
overview of the film is as follows: Firmly ensconced in the geeky pantheon of computer legends since high school, Richard Garriott can afford to pursue his dreams - even the wildly improbable ones. For instance, following in his astronaut father's footsteps. NASA won't take you because of bad eyes? No problem! Pioneer your own private space industry and buy a $30 million seat on a Russian Soyuz. Richly funny and invigorating, Man on a Mission tags along with Richard on his years-long quest to be the second Garriott into space. And maybe come back.
Something not well known is that the film-makers (Beef & Pie) attended SyndCon 2009. Richard was a speaker at the conference and they filmed many members talking about
Ultima Online; the Ultima series of games; Richard etc.. and used some of that footage in the documentary. Within the first 15minutes, Syndicate guildmaters "Dragons" has a talking head moment. You will find other Syndicate talking heads throughout the film.
Richard has led a fascinating life and Man on a Mission is a very enjoyable movie that we definitely recommend.
