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!

Filming a Documentary at GDC 09 - Can you Help with Names and Info?

As you may or may not know, Matt Barton and I are working with Lux Digital Pictures as writers and producers on an upcoming feature film documentary on videogames. As such, we're looking to interview various industry professionals for the documentary. The interviews will be conducted the week of the convention at an adjacent hotel. If anyone has a particular person in mind to interview who will be at GDC 09 in San Francisco next month and happens to know their contact info or can suggest how to get in contact with them, that would be appreciated.

Alternately, if you are an industry professional who will be in the area of GDC 09 from March 23 - March 27 and are interested in being interviewed as part of the feature film documentary, please get in contact with me at for more details.

Thanks, everyone!

Future of Pinball DVD Update

Revenge from Mars Pinball MachineRevenge from Mars Pinball MachineGreg Maletic has sent the following update regarding the Future of Pinball documentary:

A lot has been going on in the "Future of Pinball" universe, so I thought I'd send out an update...

- First and foremost, creation of the DVD is moving forward. I just returned from Chicago where I recorded a commentary track for the DVD from several of the people who participated in the film: Roger Sharpe, Tom Uban, Cameron Silver, and Duncan Brown. They provide a lot of great insights and I know their commentary track will be an excellent addition to the disc. There are still a few uncertainties left in the schedule, but I'm shooting for a late Summer release to members of the mailing list. I'll be sure to keep you posted!
