New documentary on the UK gaming industry

#1 Post by Gunness » Wed Aug 01, 2012 1:06 pm

A couple of UK filmmakers are preparing a documentary on the development of the UK gaming industry, from 1979 to 1996.
It's about gaming in general, so it's not specifically up our alley like Get Lamp was. Still, I have a hunch that there are bunch of retro buffs hanging out here :)

I have been in touch with one of the filmmakers and promised to come up with a few suggestions for adventure people they ought to talk to. Right now, the list of planned interviewees include Ian Livingstone (of Fighting Fantasy/Eureka! fame), Geoff Crammond, Rob Hubbard, Mike Singleton, Jeff Minter, Andrew Braybrook and lots more.

The doc, From Bedrooms to Billions, is financed via crowd funding, so as usual, various perks are offered depending on how much you want to throw into the hat. At any rate, the project needs more money, so feel free to take a closer look at its website.

Note: I'm not vouching for this project in any way, I just think it sounds mighty interesting :)
