A group of independent film makers hope to tell the story of the Britsh video games industry, from the bedrooms of 1979 to the huge, global, billion dollar industry it’s grown into today. Their new film - Bedrooms to Billions - will feature interviews with “virtually every major UK contributor in game development, art, music, publishing and journalism over the last 30 years” including a nice long interview with our very own Mark Healey, and the story of LittleBigPlanet.
The film is currently seeking funding via Kickstarter, and whilst they have reached their initial goal, they are now hoping to reach their stretch goals so the can make the film even better!
‘From Bedrooms to Billions’ is a two hour feature length documentary film telling the remarkable, true story of the British Video Games Industry from 1979 to the present day and how the creativity and vision of a relatively small number of individuals allowed the UK to play a key, pioneering role in the shaping of the billion dollar video games industry which today, dominates the modern world’s entertainment landscape.
