Pixels and Polygon Documentary

Pixels and Polygons: An Indie Game Developer Story at it's core, is a self shot documentary being produced to give insight into the life of a "starving artist", or in this case, an independent games developer as he journeys through life, culminating on a stage, with what could be a chance at becoming successful as a professional.

The documentary is shot over 4 months time, and follows artist Richard Cook, under the company AdaptivElite, as he trudges through the trials of becoming a sustainable professional, and the push to help create a successful game and company. The story culminates at the PAX East 2013 game expo in Boston, MA, where Richard and AdaptivElite debut their hard work on one of gaming's biggest stages, in what could be their one and only shot at success.

Made entirely of self shot footage, the documentary aims at a more personal take on the life of an indie developer, and uncovers the pains and struggles of everyday life, balancing 2 jobs, little money, and a role in the industry.

The edited version of the film will debut on YouTube and Vimeo online services for free in early June 2013, with an extended, uncut version available that includes bonus content and interviews for extra purchase.

Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided. The bargain of my career!

Finished my deck on Friday. Got it into a few potential investor’s hands over the weekend, and by Monday had 3 out of the 10 available memberships spoken for at $160K each. The revenue projections and film comparable services by NASH, along with the business plan and pitch deck templates were instrumental in presenting the project in such a way that financially minded potential investors could understand the movie business, the market and how my project could possibly give them a substantial ROI.

Melissa was amazing throughout the entire process. Always there to answer any questions. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. Can’t thank you enough. Best money I’ve ever spent.
