W00t! Feature Film Documentary Filming Daily Diary - San Francisco USA - Day 5+ (the last day of filming)

Bill Loguidice's picture

I just wanted to post some photo and cam videos from our trip to San Francisco, California, USA, for the filming of the interviews of industry pros and legends for our upcoming feature film documentary, W00t!: The Videogame Revolution, from Lux Digital Pictures. This is day 5 (the last day of actual filming), though some of the photos Matt took that I included in here are from the night before. Have a look and feel free to ask questions, as I'd rather respond to questions than post at length given how busy things are!

San Francisco at night. Sadly, more vagrants per square inch than any other US city...

Bill fake playing what seems to be a Jamma multi-game. Of course with a four way joystick, playing the 1942 game on it might be a bit tough...

Matt fake playing Mortal Kombat II. I magically caught the blank transition screen with the camera...

Mike, all packed up...

Proof that Matt and Bill are not the same person???

Ok, I see several pictures of Matt and Bill in the same photo. I'm still not convinced. It's an easy cut-and-paste in Photoshop.

The conspiracy continues...... :-)

P.S. It looks like you guys have had the experience of a lifetime in SF. I look forward to your gushing anecdotes here in AA.

Haha, believe it or not, when I saw these photos I said to Bill, "Some of these look like photoshop jobs." Sadly, we weren't able to do any video footage of the two of us, so I suppose the conspiracy will have to continue! :)

We wanted to shoot a few minutes of DDR and some other stuff in the "Tilt" arcade at the Sony Metreon. However, the dork at the counter wouldn't let us without permission from the manager, and after a bunch of runarounds we finally got the owner (based in Texas) who wanted $5,000 for the shoot. Obviously, that was dumb. On a sad note, though, the place was virtually deserted. We went on various days and times and never saw more than 3 or 4 patrons; it's a ghost town. The mechanical arcade was actually doing much better.
