We have a really unique opportunity to do this film right now. Nearly all of the people involved in early video games are still alive. We can’t go back and interview early film composers, but we can interview game sound designers and composers from the early days. That opportunity won’t last forever. We need to document this incredible history while we can. We’re going to be keeping all the extra footage that doesn’t make it into the film, and make it available to researchers and fans, so everyone can have access to this important historical information, now and for the future! We’ve brought on board an archivist and librarian who are going to help us out with archiving and making these recordings available to you.
