“Video Games The Movie” explores the beginnings and rise of video games, from Pong and Pac Man to today’s multi-billion dollar industry of cinema-realism and immersive experiences. The film is narrated by Sean Astin and includes interviews with Zach Braff (executive producer), Chris Hardwick, Will Wheaton and videogame leaders Nolan Bushnell and Hideo Kojima. From the directors comments:
Games are a part of the human experience and permeate our culture now more than ever before. I’m thrilled that my film will expose the world to a never-before-told story of the men and women who built this industry as well as what it has become and what it will continue to evolve into, and I’m thrilled to be partnering with Variance to bring it out to the world.
