The documentary project has cleared its goal with 19 days remaining.
Video Games: The Movie, which launched a Kickstarter not too long ago for $60,000 to fund its post-production process, has achieved its crowd-funding goal. Thus far, the project is at $70,052 from 567 backers with 19 days to go for completion and has now introduced stretch goals to the equation.
This includes $80,000 netting narration by an unknown celebrity; $100,000 allowing Mediajuice to pick up “popular” songs to use in the movie; and $120,000 bringing in a famous band or composer for composing the movie’s soundtrack.
Video Games: The Movie is a documentary directed by Jeremy Snead created through a year’s worth of footage with figures from the gaming industry. It purports to tell the story of video games, and includes interviews with several developers and famous geek icons.
This includes Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford, Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski and many more. The film will highlight several issues relevant to the industry including stereotypes, gender bias, video game violence, video games as art and much more.
