Pixels and Polygons: An Indie Game Developer Story


Starving artist Richard Cook takes us on a journey he underwent in 2013 as he showcases a video game he is working on at the penny arcade expo (PAX), one of the largest gaming conventions in the world.
This documentary manages to provoke nostalgic feelings all gamers love to experience but also it gives us another glimpse into the often loveless battle developers have trying to break out into the small market of successful video games.
The documentary style very much mimics Richards life, at times we have quality audio and the underappreciated opportunity to watch eggs being made in HD and at other times we get an audio bomb from a mobile camera device recording Richard from the inside of his car as he drives between his two jobs to make ends meet. For me this mash up of style didn't take away from the film but added a dose of charm.
Enjoy this film with a side serving of emulated video games and yesterday’s re-heated Chinese style food.

Pixel Poetry: The Case For Video games As Art


*Video games can be art or rather, video games are art, according to anyone who has had the pleasure of experiencing Grim Fandango, Myst, Journey, Shadow of the Colossus, ICO, Okami, Heavy Rain, Braid, The Last of Us …
Games as an interactive medium and art-form have transcended their conception as collections of pixels and polygons, as well as having outgrown the confinements of linear mediums. Many modern titles deliver powerful, emotional, and evocative experiences.
We’re excited to share film-maker Richard Cook’s upcoming documentary feature “Pixel Poetry: The Case For Videogames As Art”. Kellee Santiago would be proud.
Pixel Poetry is a film that revolves around the notion of video games as an art form, and more broadly the transcendence of art through technology. Creating a definitive opinion from those in games, music, film, painting, sculpture, and more, this documentary aims at the evolution of games in their artistic relevance and creates an open discussion and compelling argument about what they can ultimately mean as art.

*This text was taken from the great website http://tumblr.loudr.fm/ and was produced by Team Loudr, I could have written half a page on Richard Cook’s new and exciting project but I couldn’t do a better job than they did, so please check their page out too.


Watch this trailer and share it with friends, Don’t forget to stop by the upcoming crowd funding project to get your hands on the film when it’s made.
