Hi there, how are you? It’s been a while, ain’t it? Well, I’ve been busy, you know. I had this documentary series on my plate and now I’m trying to fix funding for 2 projects I’m doing before figuring out what to do next. But things are going well. Don’t worry. I’m okay.
First of all, Super Game Jam’s finale will be shown at Fantastic Fest on the September 18th at 6:30PM in the… wait… the Alamo South Lamar? Our documentary is being shown at an Alamo Drafthouse? No fucking way!
Okay, anyway. It’ll be there, but sadly Daniel and myself won’t make it since the bridge between Europe and Austin is a tough one to gap. I’m hoping we can attend more coming festivals in the flesh, but it’s been quite the mad-house for us just delivering this series.
I’ve been thinking about doing a write-up on the making of Super Game Jam for some time now, but I’m not sure how I want to present it to the world. It could be just the text with some behind the scenes snapshots. It could also be a podcast. Or we could try to integrate more of our experience into the Making Of our lovely assistant Kim Idsinga has been making. I’ll figure it out. Comes good.
On Friday September 26th I’ll be giving a 15-minute talk at the Dutch Film Festival. I’m gonna try and present the idea that videogames - its industry, products, individuals and audience - are great subjects for documentaries and films as any other subject. It starts at 2:00PM at Tivoli Vredenburg in Utrecht and it’s feature lots of people talking about how films and video games could compliment each other. More info here.
Furthermore: I’m prepping a documentary which I’ll start shooting in October. I’m also setting up a video game, figuring out things for 2 other documentaries, prepping a screenplay, thinking about 4 other screenplays and looking at ways to set up a production office in Zwolle. Fun times, you can imagine.
