8 May

We’ve reached the end of the road. Kyle and I are both happy with what we’ve made over the course of just one semester. For myself, it was the first time seriously working with a video camera. We’ve learned a lot about both the technical aspects of documentary but also quite a lot about our topic. If you’re going to be in Ithaca, please come to our screening on May 16 at 5:30 pm in the Transmedia Studio! For now, here’s the script of our documentary, Beats and Bytes. We plan to have it online at some point soon, and possibly even with some extras also uploaded to YouTube. We had even more content that just didn’t fit into the documentary, but we want to thank everyone in the ICGSO for all of their help, participation, and enthusiasm.

Doc Script Final


End of the Road

6 May

So this is it: our finalized documentary is due in two days! We finished up most of the editing today and got some helpful feedback from our classmates and professor last week that really tied the entire production together. Reactions all around seem very positive in terms of subject matter, and apart from a few technical issues the production is good to go. We plan on submitting our finished documentary to several smaller film festivals, including a documentary-specific one in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, as well as the International Student Film Festival in Hollywood; both take place this October, so we’ll have to wait for a while before we hear back about our chances, but we’re hopeful it will get picked up!

We would also like to thank everyone, both participants and supporters, who made this documentary a reality, including Michael Samson, Tiffany Lu, Alex Ryan, Shota Nakama, Shawn Jimmerson, Austin Wintory and the entire Ithaca College Gamer Symphony Orchestra. It was a pleasure working with all of you, and hopefully the end of this production cycle will not mean the end of our journey.
