Here’s the first trailer for gaming documentary ‘Video Games: The Movie’
Produced by Zach Braff, this looks like a gaming documentary made for gamers.
Two years ago, Indie Game: The Movie was hailed by the video game industry. It tells the story of three indie game development teams and their efforts to get their games made. As a documentary, Indie Game: The Movie is well-crafted. It won the World Cinema Documentary Editing Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
As a vehicle for explaining to outsiders how video games have “grown up,” the film was wildly successful. It was accessible without being patronizing, and set game developers in contexts that just about anyone could understand.
Now we have Video Games: The Movie, a gaming documentary executive produced by Zach Braff. A trailer for the film was uploaded to YouTube this week.
While Indie Game: The Movie took pains to speak to a general audience, Video Games: The Movie seems to be aimed directly at a gaming audience. A few independent theaters in the U.S. will show the film starting in July, but it’ll also be available streaming.
