The Artists: From Pong To Pop And The Dawn Of The Video Game Era

About the Show

THE ARTISTS: FROM PONG TO POP AND THE DAWN OF THE VIDEO GAME ERA (10x8mins), produced by First Generation Films, is a 10-part documentary series about the first three decades of the video game industry, told from the perspective of the designers and programmers who were there when it started. This eclectic group of commentators connect the dots from then to now and show why these stories matter today. We all know who Scorsese, Spielberg and Tarantino are, but how many of us recognize the names Miyamoto, Wright or Romero? THE ARTISTS presents these pioneering creators as they are: visionary artists of the 21st century.
