Video game box art documentary -- on Kickstarter now

Recommended Posts

Hi, all!

 

If you didn't know, I'm an author of the upcoming book on Atari box art -- the Art of Atari. (http://amzn.to/1W5v3Jb) And also here: and over here http://atariage.com/forums/topic/220583-art-of-atari-book-in-progress-and-need-help/

I'm also a part of another project on Kickstarter right now, a bonafide documentary about video game box art itself. It's the vision of director Rob McCallum, who has done a bunch of other great work, including the documentary Nintendo Quest. I'm serving as a producer on the documentary, and hope to provide some context, connections with artists, and an overall look at art and design in the classic gaming era.

 

It's shaping up to be supercool, but obviously, for it to happen we need to meet our Kickstarter goals, then go beyond them. We'd love your support and help to just get the word out. This will definitely include a serious look at Atari, but will also go far beyond into the bigger video game world.

 

So, please check it out, and let me know if you have any questions. We're excited to make it happen!

Great project idea, Tim, and kudos to you and Rob for coming up with it! Let's hope you get the necessary funding.

 

My pledge is in. Everyone else, 14 days left to pledge the remaining $9000.

Looks like Japan centric

Not really -- we will be covering a broad spectrum, to be sure!

Awesome. I love box art. I am a huge fan of PC "BIG BOX" art. I have a huge collection, Sierra being my favorite.
