You might have heard of GameLoading before. It's a documentary focusing on indie games, being made by two Melbourne-based film makers. They ran a successful Kickstarter before, raising over $57,000, but in order to finish their project they need a little more. So they've started a second Kickstarter.
No wait! Don't go! It's worthwhile! They deserve your attention at least. I've watched an early 15 minute preview of what the team is producing, and I'm fairly certain you are going to want to see this documentary.
GameLoading has been in production since 2011. It is a massive, massive project that's continued to grow in scope during its production. The team has travelled across the globe, interviewing some of the most influential indie creators currently working in games and — from what I've seen so far — the result is an incredibly definitive video game documentary on what is akin to a punk rock movement in video games.
When a project heads to the Kickstarter well a second time, it's only rational to feel a little cynical, but this project is important. It's also an incredibly compelling story and I can't wait to see the final product.
