Game Jams are an incredible thing to witness. Keyboards rattle, fizzy drinks are consumed and magic is made. It's a real genuine hub of creativity and I've been lucky enough to attend and watch two so far. But, sadly, I missed this year's Global Game Jam events in Australia. Thankfully Lester Francois is in the process of putting together a comprehensive movie length documentary called GameLoading — about Melbourne's thriving indie scene. He's released five minutes of footage of this year's Game Jam to get everyone excited about his upcoming flick.
The prospect of a movie about the Melbourne Indie scene is pretty exciting. There's so much exciting stuff being created down there and documenting everyone's work is a great idea.
You can follow the process of the documentary at GameLoading's Facebook page. I know I will.
