The Makers of Indie Game on Crossing the 180 #93

swirsky-pajotThe movie made by this week’s guests was put on a ton of “The Best of…” lists of 2012: Indiewire, Rotten Tomatoes, SlashFilm, IGN and iTunes to name a few. Paste Magazine named my guests two of the top 15 filmmakers to watch in 2012. They are the dynamic documentary duo of James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot. Their film is Indie Game: The Movie, a look at the indie game-making industry, focusing primarily on 2-3 game-makers. This documentary is so riveting and dramatic, it’s like watching a narrative drama. If you loved “The Social Network” you’ll love this too. It has intrigue, comedy, suspense, backstabbing…all the things that make a good dramatic piece. It looks amazing, all the more impressive as the whole thing was shot with a 5D Mark II. You won’t want to miss the episode. Also, be sure to check out the movie. It’s available for purchase and rent online, as well as on Netflix streaming.

This show is co-produced by Dan Rollins of LiveWire Films. The music used in this week’s sponsor segments was “The Final Battle” graciously provided by Clocks and Clouds from their album “Life Beyond Reason.” Learn more about their unique fusion of classical music and rock instrumentals and www.clocksandcloudsmusic.com. They are a great source for indie filmmakers to get amazing and unique music for your productions.
