Matt Barton and Woot! featured in St Cloud Times

I was certainly happy to see that the St. Cloud Times has printed a very nice article about me in today's paper. You can read it here: SCSU professor takes video games to new level. I was really impressed with the reporter David Unze and the very talented photographer Jason Wachter. The article will only be online for a week, so read it while you can! They were excited enough to put it on the front page, above the fold--and very prominent!

W00t! Feature Film Documentary Filming Daily Diary - San Francisco USA - The Final Day, Plus Rare Arcade Multimedia!

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, which will release worldwide in 2010. These photos and videos represent our final time here, including our trip to a very cool retro arcade, with plenty of electro-mechanical stuff and arcade games from the 1800's through to the present day (We also have some amazing footage of the elusive and controversial "Death Race" arcade machine you'll not want to miss!). 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!

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!

Wednesday Morning - W00t! Feature Film Documentary Filming

Well, it's day 4 of our adventures in San Francisco and GDC. Still going strong, even though conducting the interviews is strenuous. We got to meet John Romero last night, who is certainly one of the most interesting and unpredictable people in the business--has a memory for detail like you wouldn't believe. I think he knows every Apple II game, developer, year, and programming routine by heart (not to mention his extensive knowledge of other platforms!) We got fantastic footage as well. We ended up going out to dinner with John and his friends and had a great and enlightening time!

W00t! Feature Film Documentary Filming Daily Diary - San Francisco USA - Days 1 and 2

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 days 1 and 2. In short, our flights were long, bumpy (I was coming from New Jersey and Matt was coming from Minnesota), and the room small and cramped--and that's before all the equipment moved in with us for the week. Have a look and feel free to ask questions, as I'd rather respond to questions than post at length given that this was a very long day!

Your thoughts on the feature film documentary, "W00t!: The Videogame Revolution"

As you may know, Matt and I are writing and producing a feature film documentary for Lux (pronounced "Loox") Digital Pictures with the working title of "W00t!: The Videogame Revolution". It will essentially be a roughly 90 minute+ film on videogame (and computer) history with a fair amount of emphasis on some of the greatest and most influential games of all time, a la our book, "Vintage Games: An Insider Look at the History of Grand Theft Auto, Super Mario, and the Most Influential Games of All Time". As you may also know, we will be conducting interviews with industry pros for the documentary at the Game Developers Conference 2009 (GDC 09) in San Francisco, where we'll be March 22 - 28. I'm happy to say we already have a nice mix of talent to interview, including some true legends that many of us know and love. What I'd like to hear from our amazingly intelligent and attractive readership is what exactly you'd like to see in an "ultimate videogame documentary". In other words, what would be your ideal content for such a picture? You were all a big help making the "Vintage Games" book so special, so I'd really love to hear your thoughts on what would make a great film. Now is the time to voice your opinion, as Matt and I will be getting down to serious content generation very, very soon. Thanks, everyone!
