She Got Game is about as indie as it gets, crowd-funded by director/producer/editor Cailleah Scott-Grimes who despite not being a "hardcore"gamer herself wanted to explore how gaming fit into women's lives both socially and professionally, the challenges they face and what they are doing to change the way the industry is making video games and how they are perceived.
Whilst Grimes' idea clearly had potential in execution it's a little underwhelming. Clocking in at just over 50 minutes it doesn't have that much time to really dig into any of the various aspects of women in gamer culture that it features. The production values are a little all over the place too given the films indie nature with several interviews with participants which are barely audible due to background noise.
