After some dedicated work by the folks behind The Player's Score - A Video Game Music Documentary. they have finally launched their Kickstarter campaign, and it's time to turn the hype up full force. As of the time of this writing, the TPS crew has 44 days left in which to raise a little over $20,000 to make their dream a reality. Depending on the size and weight of your wallet, you can donate anywhere from $5-$3000 (with physical rewards starting at the $35 price point) to support this documentary.
The Player's Score is a documentary aiming to show the impact of video game music via the endless amounts of musicians inspired by video game music, as well as the fans, events, and community that surrounds them. I've had the pleasure of meeting director Kory Caldwell and producer Keaton Slansky a few months ago, and I sincerely hope they are successfull in this endeavor. Not just for them and the rest of the crew, who are truly passionate about this project and the VGM scene, but also for the hundreds of fans like myself who have been waiting for the day that someone would undertake the cross country (and possibly even global) trek through the widely scattered VGM scene and create a great documentary from that footage.
