Kickstart “Box Art” a Documentary

Rob McCallum has been making a bit of a name for himself by Kickstarting awesome documentary projects. Most recently, he successfully funded the “I Have the Power” documentary about one of my favourite franchises of all time: Masters of the Universe. This Tuesday (19 April 2016), the documentary maker launched another project on Kickstarter – and it’s another doozey.

Box Art does exactly what it says in the title. It’s an examination of video game box art covering the entire history of video gaming. Here’s the official low down:


The film will explore the process, history and impact of our favorite videogame artwork, from every era of gaming, and ask questions like “when does something become art?” and “when does it become collectible?”. It will interview over 100 people, including founder of mega giant Electronic Arts (EA) Trip Hawkins, founder of Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM), Jeff Peters, Gerald Brom of “Doom” fame, actress and personality, Jessica Chobot, and Atari co-founder, Ted Dabney.

Depending on how well the campaign goes, this could become a five-part series giving ample time to delve into this fascinating subject. To find out more, you can head over to the Kickstarter page or follow the campaign on Facebook and Twitter.

In two days, the project is already a third of the way through it’s initial funding goal … so why not join the fun?
