Lorber Films to Release Two of the Latest Lux Digital Pictures Productions to Theaters

While Matt and I are still hard at work on our upcoming feature film documentary, Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution, there comes good news related to the producer and financier, Lux Digital Pictures, in a story from indiWIRE, which can be read here. To summarize, Lorber Films will be releasing two of Lux Digital Pictures' recently completed films, “American Grindhouse” and “Nightmares in Red, White, and Blue,” to theaters in both the US and Canada. This is great news, as it's amazingly difficulty to get even limited theatrical distribution for indie productions, and bodes well for Gameplay's future.

As a reminder, Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution, is a feature film documentary that celebrates the amazing story of videogames, focusing on the industry's most decisive moments throughout its history. Comprehensive in scope, the film covers games from all genres and platforms, from the late 1950s into modern times. Featuring interviews with industry greats such as John Romero (Doom), David Crane (Pitfall!), Steve Meretzky (Planetfall), Todd Howard (Fallout 3), and John Smedley (EverQuest) - plus many others - Gameplay offers an in-depth look at the industry that has redefined popular entertainment. The film explores the impact of mega-hits such as Atari's Pong, Nintendo's Super Mario Bros., and Blizzard’s World of Warcraft, as well as the role played by revolutionary technologies like the CD-ROM and the Internet. Loaded with high-quality clips from hundreds of vintage and modern games, Gameplay is a film no gamer can resist.

The film is being written and produced for Lux Digital Pictures by Bill Loguidice and Matt Barton, authors of Vintage Games: An Insider Look at the History of Grand Theft Auto, Super Mario, and the Most Influential Games of All Time (Focal Press, 2009), Dungeons & Desktops: The History of Computer Role-Playing Games (A.K. Peters, 2008), and Wii Fitness for Dummies (Wiley, 2010). Matt and Bill are also the founders of Armchair Arcade, recognized by PC Magazine as one if its Top 100 Websites. Lux Digital Pictures has produced several recent, critically acclaimed documentaries, including Nightmares in Red, White, and Blue and American Grindhouse, which covers the history of horror and exploitation films, respectively. While Gameplay naturally touches upon controversial topics such as violence and sex in games, the overall tone is overwhelmingly positive. Lifelong, passionate gamers themselves, Barton and Loguidice are committed to ensuring accuracy, fairness, and integrity in all the topics covered in the film.

Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution - A Feature Film Documentary

We've been getting asked quite a bit lately to reveal more information about our forthcoming feature film documentary, so I thought I would share the current promotional description making the rounds. While we're still tweaking things here and there, what follows should be pretty close to the release version of the film:

Feature Film Documentary on Videogames - Looking for new and archival media

As you may already know, we're working on a major feature film documentary on videogames, tentatively titled, Gameplay: The Story of the Videogame Revolution, which is through Lux Digital Pictures, responsible for such features as Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film and American Grindhouse. We're presently in the process of gathering the last of the important footage and would like to round it out with archive materials, commercials, promotional videos and other media - past and present - that would be relevant to the documentary. While we're presently in negotiations with most major videogame companies, we're always on the lookout for more, more, more. If you're a rights holder, archivist, work for a videogame company (even one of the big ones), etc., and would like to contribute materials, please get in contact with me at bill@armchairarcade.com. The film is going to be a celebration of the positive aspects of videogames (and computers) through a vivid historical narrative that takes viewers right through to the present day (and beyond) and features interviews with top industry pros and quite a bit of in-game footage, a lot of which has never been seen before in this type of format. Thanks for the help in making this even better!
