    Official Trailer Release & New Campaign


    Hey Everybody!  Big day today.  Today, we are very proud to debut of the OFFICIAL trailer for Indie Game: The Movie.

    Indie Game: The Movie - The Official Trailer

    We hope you like it.  We hope it entertains, inspires and maybe even surprises a little bit.  We’ve kept pretty quiet on the specifics of what is and isn’t in the movie.  This is not part of master secretive marketing plan, we can assure you.  It is simply due to the fact that this film has been a moving target for us.  Actually scratch that, it’s been an evolving target.  We talked a bit about the process to get us to the film you see preview above in this post

     Which naturally brings us to announcement number two...


    Join Us In Finishing the Movie:

    We have started a new Kickstarter campaign in order to help properly finish the film.  Currently, we're done filming and have a very solid rough cut (actually 3 full iterations).  The finish line is wonderfully close and we're on target to have IGTM complete in mid-August.

    So far, we’ve done everything ourselves on this project. The producing, directing, cinematography, editing, and writing for the feature film and all the web videos we’ve made during the process. But, now we need some help from others and support to get the feature film done right and taken to the next level, technically-speaking.

    We're looking for help with the finishing costs of the feature film (audio, colour, and mastering) in order to make this movie the best possible version of itself.

    To date, this project has been solely funded by the original Kickstarter campaign, website pre-orders and personal savings (often ill-advised in the film world :)   

    If you like what you see in the trailer and on the website, please consider pre-ordering your copy today either through Kickstarter or this website (left hand column). These pre-orders are really help us make the film better.

    And, if you’ve already supported us - thank you so much. The support of the community has helped with funds, but also creatively. It feels so good to know that people appreciate your work - which is a core element of the film as well.

    Please pass on the trailer and tell your friends about the project. We hope to get a lot of people to see this film, hear these stories and learn more about indie games. Many thanks!


    -James & Lisanne

    Will you make a game about this movie?

    We may have to give the license to someone else. Our programming skills are limited to camera settings and grandparent's VCRs :)

    Whats the name of the song used in the trailer? :)

    June 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBazzickles

    @Bazz For now it is nameless ... I think. It is fresh from the prolific musical skull of Jim Guthrie - done custom for the trailer.

    Jim may have a title for it. But, right now, it is not available anywhere. But maybe down the road....

    Thanks for asking though (sorry I didn't have more satisfactory answers)

    @Monky1919 We're currently working on it. A lot of really exciting things are happening behind the scenes. We're going to announce the premiere date as soon as we possibly can

    @Ghoststyle Thanks!

    Hey IGTM! I've been following your movie for ALONG time, even helped with KickStarter. Just wanted to know, since there is no release date yet, if the movie was going to be released before the end of 2011? If yes; my year has become amazing! :D Thanks for the reply, in advance!

    Hey Evan,

    Thanks so much for support/preorder! That's fantastic to hear! Super happy you're looking forward to the film

    We were hoping for a Fall release, however, it's becoming a little less likely that it's going to happen. There is a very very good reason (all positive) for this that we can not make public at the moment (we will soon though).

    But rest assured, the film is in a good place and we desperately want to start showing it. It will be coming soon. We have an announcement coming up that will have all the hard dates set & made clear.

    It's a bit quiet on the site right now. But, it won't be soon :)

    Thanks for your patience. We're trying to get the film out in the best way possible as soon as possible.

    Take Care,

    Thank you so much for the very speedy response, and a good one at that! I cant wait for the announcement as well as the movie itself! I'm sure the wait will be more than worth it, for the polished product that will be released!

    Thanks again!

    I've seen the trailer a million times and it still make me feel a especial gammer proud :-)

    Great work guys, the film is really inspiring, a true example of the effort to achieve goals not only in making game industry even for everything in life.

    Can't wait to see it, please let us all know as soon as the release date came out...(hopefully soon)

    Jim Guthrie did the music to the movie! I love his stuff in SB:S&S EP even got the album so looks like i have to do the same (yes more songs to the playlist). This Movie is going to be amazing, I'm going to see it the day its out.
