Indie Filmmakers lvl 60
23 July 2012 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky knocked this out of the park. It is a film that follows three indie games at different parts of their development that have a story worth telling.

Indie Game: The Movie so well crafted that my wife (non-gamer, non-geek, but appreciates movies) enjoyed and was interested. The pacing and storytelling invokes a wide range of emotions. The artistic choices of cinematic style are spot on and consistent throughout the film.

The fact that it was mainly done by two people... puts me further in awe.
