Animation is an area that is little understood, we work hours upon hours to create digital images that a small audience will hopefully enjoy and if it fails, our hard work has been in vain. The frustrations and joys that come with such a creative medium have been felt by all of us and so it is this film that most excites me.
Indie Game: The Movie Official Trailer from IndieGame: The Movie on Vimeo.
Indie Game: The Movie documents the lives of passionate game developers who feel they have one purpose, and that is to create videogames. It is obviously within the creative spectrum of animation itself and the emotions and tensions that can be seen in the trailer reflect those of almost everyone in the industry. With the pressure of ones own artistic ambition it is easy to become overwhelmed, but this film looks to be uplifting in the most pure and honest way. These are individuals whose only goal is to follow through on their artistic ambition without selling short or loosing sight of what makes them passionate in the first place. I have yet to see the movie as it obviously has little coverage in national theatres, however, it will be available soon from their website (pre-order at http://www.indiegamethemovie.com/) and looks to be something rather special.
