|| Kickstarter campaign: The Gaming Chronicles - Episode 1 - The Amiga 500|
Nicola Caulfield & Anthony Caulfield from London have produced films documenting the video games industry, in addition to various other documentaries for cinemas, broadcast and advertising. Their work includes "From Bedrooms to Billions", the history of the British video games industry from 1979 to the present day, released in 2014, and the sequel "From Bedrooms to Billions", entitled "The Amiga Years", released in May 2016 (amiga-news.de reported).
Over the years, hundreds of hours of filmed interview material have accumulated, not all of which has been included in previous films. The two were thus looking for a way to make this material available to everyone and present it in an informative and entertaining way. Thus the idea of the 'Gaming Chronicle's was born.
The Gaming Chronicles are specially created episodic content that covers certain topics in gaming or computer history in more detail. The crowdfunding campaign now launched for this is intended to help fund this project.
Over time, it is hoped that this work will become a digital film resource containing everything there is to know about the gaming industry. The goal is to produce a main documentary-style episode of 50-60 minutes, but also to create several self-contained featurettes totaling 40 minutes that will act as companion material to the main documentary and put all of this into a downloadable archive.
For this first installment, the filmmakers have decided to focus on the Commodore Amiga 500 computer, which was released 35 years ago this very year. The Kickstarter campaign, which runs through Sunday, July 10, 2022, has already raised about $18,400 of the 24,354 needed. (dr)
