Indie Game movie makers discuss project

Turnstyle's Noah Nelson interviews the brilliant minds behind Indie Game: The Movie, whose trailer is embedded above.

Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky left behind a comfortable career doing corporate video gigs and other commercial work in order to pursue an unexpected passion project: a documentary about people who set aside stable jobs of their own to pursue the creation of video games without corporate backing.

The Road to Sundance and Beyond– Indie Game: The Movie [Turnstyle]


  1. “the sum total of every expressive medium of all time” as a little creature jumps up a brick wall to score points

    1. As an indie game developer (now working on two titles) I agree with his assessment of the medium so yeah, maybe we are all mad. 

      Gaming has the power and the potential – like fire – to change the world or destroy it. We’re all working (at F.8 Interactive, at least)  towards option A, and I found the trailer alone supremely inspiring. 

      P.S. the swiveling 3-D platform game with the fez creature looks excellent. 

      P.P.S. Super Meat Boy!
