'From Bedrooms to Billions'- The Story of the British Computer Games Industry

'From Bedrooms to Billions' is a 150 minute feature length documentary movie telling the remarkable, true story of the British Video Games Industry from 1979 to the present. The film was created by Anthony and Nicola Caulfield after being successfully crowdfunded on the site Indiegogo in May 2012. They were seeking £20,000 but smashed through this getting closer to £60,000.

The documentary tells the story of the UK games industry, discussing its amateur beginnings, the heady days of excess in the 80s and following through with the downturn in the mid- 90s. The film includes interviews with such luminaries as Jeff Minter, Matthew Smith, Ian Livingstone and over 150 more important guests in gaming history.

I am in the process of watching the film and will provide a review once I have seen it this weekend, but I am very excited about the film as I feel the 80s gaming scene in Britain was an exciting time and hasn't truly been covered in detail in a documentary. This one could just fit the bill!
