    IGTM & IA on CBC!

    With the launch of Indie Game: The Movie, we've been fortunate to have a lot of really nice things said in the press and have a number of generous invitations to tell our story (listen to us spend the hour with TigRadio here).  

    One really fun experience was going on our local CBC radio station to talk about the film and the fundraising process.  We brought our cameras along and thought we'd film & share the interview. 

    A couple interesting things about that interview. Firstly, we have Edmund saying 'shit' on public radio (hehe), and, yes, BioShock and Halo are used (by the host) as example touch points in an indie game discussion - we only had 3 minutes, so best to just let that slide.

    Overall, not too much new IGTM info in the interview.  But what was interesting is that one of the main topics for the segment was to be a discussion about our Kickstarter experience. Which, at that point, was at $ 10,000.  However,  TWO minutes before we went to air, we get an email from Kickstarter congratulating us on reaching our goal - thanks to a $ 5,000+ donation from Ken Schachter of Trapdoor.  The news totally took us aback, flustering us a tad for the interview.  But, hey, if you're going to get flustered - that's the way to do it!

    Also stepping up to the CBC mic was Alec Holowka of Infinite Ammo.  He writes quite eloquently about the experience here.  The interview is definitely worth a listen.

    Big Thanks to CBC Winnipeg, 'Up to Speed', Margo Watt and the intrepid Ruth Shead for having us on!  We hope to back talking IGTM once its done.
