From Bedrooms to Billions is a documentary feature film that tells the story of the UK Video Games Industry from 1979 to the present. The film was funded via Kickstarter and created through the passion and devotion of filmakers Anthony and Nicola Caulfield. The Amiga Years will be the second film after the success of Bedrooms to Billions and will hopefully become a reality through an already established Kickstarter campaign which we can all back here. At the time of writing this the campaign is at £39,432 with twenty one days to go to reach a pledge of £50,000. Clearly there are a lot of people that want this project to come to fruition.
The Amiga Years Kickstarter Campaign: Let's back it!
Anthony and Nicola Caulfield said:
We used Kickstarter to fund our previous film called From Bedrooms to Billions that told the story of the UK video games industry from 1979 to the present day and we are turning to it again now in the 30th anniversary year of the release of the Commodore Amiga in the hope that you will support us once again to produce a film that not only celebrates this fantastic machine, but importantly what it did for the video games industry and development in general due to the many ground breaking games that appeared on it.
We found Kickstarter such a wonderful way to really engage our audience and enjoyed making our backers feel part of our project. We now want to explore The Amiga Years! as this was a part of our previous film that for running time reasons we could not explore as deeply as we wanted to and always felt that it would work as a standalone feature documentary.
Therefore it is our intention to film a whole new set of interviews to add to our already extensive list to create a standalone, immersive and highly nostalgic film that really explores why the release of the Commodore Amiga and the era that soon followed was a key period in the evolution of video games.
