Today, StudioBento, who are making the successfully Kickstarted documentary GameLoading: Rise of the Indies, reached out with a 20 minute preview of the documentary. This is coming out right before post-production, and while it isn’t a final version by any means, it does offer a great sneak peek of what this documentary has in store. Give it a watch!
GameLoading: Rise of the Indies is a feature documentary exploring the world
of indie game developers – their craft, their games, their dreams, and how they
have forever changed the landscape of games culture. Disrupting the big-budget
industry, indie games have altered the art form through their innovative, varied
and personal games. Small teams of passionate and creative developers are
offering an alternate voice to players. GameLoading aims to capture this pivotal
point in history, where video games have become more personal than ever
The film aims to showcase a wide variety of indie developers behind some of the
most important games of the past few years and take a broad snapshot of this
diverse, creative community on an international scale.
The film will demystify what goes into making a game, examine the processes of
different studios and individuals, capture the excitement of industry events like
PAX and GDC, ponder why we play and what success means, and explore
where this art form has come from and where it may be going.
GameLoading is currently running a Final Push Kickstarter to fund Post production. If you’d like to help fund the project, please head to the feature’s Kickstarter page. At the time of writing, the Kickstarter has 20 days to go and has raised $19,936 of its $50,000 goal.
