FILM & PROJECT SUMMARY:
We are setting out to tell the untold behind the scenes story of the history, culture, community and phenomenon that is video games. AND we are going to share our progress along the way with exclusive video clips. Jeremy Snead, our Director, is President & Creative Director at Mediajuice Studios and has worked in the video game industry for 10+ years on many award winning videos & TV spots like Street Fighter IV, Dragonball Z & many others.
-If our campaign is successful YOU will have successfully funded the 1st ever film that tells the true story of the origins, history, culture, community and phenomenon of video games from the 1960's to 2013 and beyond. AND WE WANT YOU TO ATTEND THE FILM PREMIERE!!
-BOTTOM LINE - We CANNOT MAKE THIS FILM WITHOUT YOUR HELP. Plus if you help, you can be a part of the film (literally). We want to shoot fan interviews in every location we shoot in. You may live in one of these locations and if you do please let us know (and contribute at the appropriate level) and we will come shoot your interview! (FYI; You must be a video game fan to be interviewed due to the subject matter of the film.)
We have also partnered with Rusel DeMaria, author of the best selling book HIGH SCORE: An Illustrated History of Electronic Games
Rusel has over 30 years of experience in the video game industry and will be an invaluable resource for the film's story. Rusel and Jeremy together having 40+ years of combined experience in the industry poise them to be uniquely qualified to tell this story:
What We Need & What You Get:
-We need your help to make this film a happen. Most of this is for travel. All of the game publishers, developers and veterans from the past are spread around the U.S. To get our crew, lights, cameras & gear to each location it takes some resources. That's where you can help us greatly! The good news is we already have TONS of great interviews lined up. Everyone in the industry has been very receptive to being a part of the film (even some celebrity "gamers"!)
-BE IN THE FILM! Check out the perks sections to see how you can not only contribute to our film but you can be IN our film!
-Whether we reach our final budget goal of $100K+ or not, all of the funds will absolutely go to the pursuit of making this film.
Here's the deal. The TRUE story of video games is really an "unknown" story in the world. There have been lots of TV specials, documentaries and youtube videos about "sections" of video game culture or the video game industry but no COMPREHENSIVE story that covers not only the industry, the culture, the fans and the phenomenon that is video games. You will be part of something great if you contribute:
-BE A PART OF FILM HISTORY (really, this is groundbreaking stuff people.)
-MEDIAJUICE (the production studio) & JEREMY SNEAD (the director) have LOADS of experience in film & video production, just look at all their great work here - http://www.mediajuicestudios.com
-BOTTOM LINE - This is awesome, and so will you be if you contribute to our film or help spread the word in your networks.
OTHER WAYS TO HELP
Just because you can’t contribute, that doesn’t mean you can’t help:

And that’s all there is to it. Thanks & Game on!
