The days of purchasing The Immortal Augustus Gladstone exclusively from our website are over (though you can still buy it that way if you like). Augustus is now available on iTunes so if you haven’t already, now is the time to gather your friends, roommates, family and anyone else and watch Augustus! (And don’t forget to rate it! We’d really appreciate it!)
AWOL in P-TOWN
For a few weeks we’ve been working on AWOL in P-TOWN a small game/toy that utilizes gigapixel technology and now it’s live. The gist of it is this: Augustus and his stuff are scattered all over the city of Portland. Using stereo tones and visualization (otherwise known as SONARVISION!) you track down Augustus and his stuff. Or just explore every nook and cranny of Portland.
And for a limited time, if you find every item, we are giving away things. Which we think is kind of cool.
We’re still making changes and additions! Music coming soon!

Live Free Online Screening and Chat
Do you want to talk to us? We want to talk to you! So come spend some time with us during our live screening of The Immortal Augustus Gladstone this Monday, Feb. 24th, at 7:00pst. Writer/Director Robyn Miller (me) and Producer Mischa Jakupcak will be on hand to answer (via audio) your questions during the show.
This is how it works: we’ll all be watching the film together, you ask the questions, any questions, whatever you like, and we’ll be sitting in front of a couple of (super high fidelity) microphones in our (super high fidelity) studio, and we will pretend to be sophisticated and worldly… and a little snobby. We’ll kind of provide a running commentary.
Think of this as an AMA but we’re all watching our film and eating popcorn together. (We do not provide the popcorn.)
By the way, the screening is FREE, or whatever you decide to give. But you can still get your tickets now.

Augustus Gladstone Goes to L.A.
Hey Los Angeles! Or anyone else who can make it to L.A.! You are invited to a free and exclusive screening for my first feature film, The Immortal Augustus Gladstone. Reserve your tickets for this Saturday, February 8, 2014 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM (PST) at the Cinefamily Silent Movie Theatre on Fairfax in West Hollywood.
From the creator of Myst comes a genre-defying tale of mystery, alienation and love in the digital age. Meet Augustus Gladstone, an eccentric who craves celebrity and connection via social networks. Augustus charms his fans with claims of immortality and a glamorous life history. But a documentary film crew prods too deeply into Augustus’ private life, raising questions about truth, identity, and friendship.
There will be live music before the show and, after the screening, there will be a Q&A with Mark Frauenfelder, the founder of Boing Boing. We hope to see you there.

Trying on that Augustus Look
An insanely talented group of people created the Augustus Gladstone look, turning Robyn into the character you see on-screen. This short video is about that process.
Washington Post Review
The follow is a quote from today’s review of The Immortal Augustus Gladstone in The Washington Post…
Miller’s first feature film,“The Immortal Augustus Gladstone,” is less open-ended [than Myst], beginning with a shot of a gravestone that foreshadows a morbid conclusion quite different from the implication of its title.
The strangely poetic movie, however, is similarly characterized by an enigma.
That enigma is Augustus himself…
