I'm happy to announce that the Website for our documentary film, Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution, is now live. You can check it out at www.gameplaymovie.com. While the Website is still partially a work-in-progress and we'll be making several tweaks and edits over the next few days, I'm glad that it's now available to share additional details beyond the previously released trailer and movie poster. Don't forget that the film also has a Facebook and Google+ presence, so you can keep track of the goings on at those places or right here at Armchair Arcade, with all of the news consolidated here. Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution will have its first screening at the The Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show! (their Website) on Saturday, June 7, 2014. Other major screenings are being planned, as well as formal distribution. Enjoy and let us know what you think!
Looking good! I registered on here almost 8 years ago & never thought you guys would be involved in a feature film. I hope it plays in Toronto. We have about a million different film festivals in this city, and a venue (Hot Docs) that is dedicated to documentaries all year. Also TIFF shows plenty of them (they have a year-round venue too) & they've done videogame themed events before.
Thanks. Yeah, it's been a good run all things considered. I suspect it will receive wide distribution before it hits Toronto, unfortunately, but it's something to consider (the production company handles all of that). Right now, there's just the Washington show, Philadelphia, and Vegas that are on the agenda, along with a potential surprise distribution medium.
Most docs seem to be on iTunes or Netflix even if they're playing theatrically at the same time, so I'll keep my eyes peeled :)
Well, this company has done Netflix before, so I suspect that will happen at some point for this. It will definitely have some type of VOD and DVD distribution, but I think for the foreseeable future there are some other types of negotiations going on, which we'll see how they play out. I'll of course post about any of it once I'm able to.
