I’m pleased to announce you that the documentary project I was preparing since December 2010 will start soon as a documentary series. What started as some interviews to my old friends who still play nowadays, has become a really big project, with more than 50 testimonies (some of them really extense) that are really different to each other. People working at marketing, events organization, journalism, pedagogy, researching, art, game development, business management, etc… All interviewed persons have a common start point, their love for videogames. You belong to a generation who has grown up with a new media, and an expression and entertainment way it leaved his mark in your memory and influenced your lives… “The Gamer Inside” is the name of the project, I chose it because of the intimacy and independence I want to keep along the series. It starts with the goal of documenting the colective memories of this generation (a gamers generation) and their reflections about the media.
During the last months, I’ve been lucky since I count with the colaboration of two great professionals, and good persons, the 2D/3D graphic artist Álvaro Redondo Caparrós author of the original idea and design for the logo, and Jonathan Hall Couto who will work in the main score. Also I have to specially thank Xudit, Juan and David and Suset, from Intermediae.
And last, but not least, I can’t forget to thank to University of Alcalá and GIPI researching group, for letting me use the materials to make the recordings.
The chosen format will be a series of thematic chapters, we will give more details about this soon…
To keep you informed about our progression, I will use this newsletter and for a closer and more constant communication also I created a Twitter account and a facebook page Facebook, all the content will be published at my mi personal blog.
Thank you for your participation in this exciting project, that still now continues growing. Hope you like it when it will be released.
Keep in touch.
