New Documentary Series “Outerlands” Looks at History and Culture of Gaming, Starts Kickstarter Campaign
Gaming has had its time on the big (and small screen) with plenty of films and documentaries related to it, such as 2012’s Indie Game: The Movie. But, the team over at AREA 5 seem to have something of a larger scope in mind with their latest project, Outerlands.
Formerly of video game-related online series like The 1UP Show and CO-OP, along with independently produced documentary series on video games like I Am Street Fighter and Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us, San Francisco-based video production team AREA 5 has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming documentary series, Outerlands.
Taking a rather comprehensive look at the history and culture of video games (along with those who make them), the Kickstarter campaign calls for a $210,000 goal to cover all expenses of production for the project, with various rewards for those that donate at the different-leveled tiers (digital downloads, producer’s credits, etc.). The Kickstarter campaign mentions that this first iteration is Outerlands: Season One, with the first season comprising of six 42-60 minute episodes, with the potential for more episodes if the stretch goals are met.
