Trailer: Beyond the Game


Beyond the Game: the EVO 2011 Trailer. from AnimatronicAckbar on Vimeo.

Beyond the Game, as the title implies, is a documentary focused on the communities outside of video games themselves. Highlighted in this trailer are fighting tournaments, chiptune musicians, and video game-focused bars. Animatronic Ackbar, a Los Angeles-based art collective focused on digital media, is the group behind this documentary.

I like the direction this documentary is taking. It’s steering away from the controversy that the press likes to focus its wrath on by focusing on the positive and fun aspects of gaming culture. You can read more about the collective on their website.
