Aiming to capture video gaming culture from all walks of life from locations all over the country for YouTube series & TV pilot
Hello... I'm Patrick Scott Patterson, gamer since September 1981. I'm a video gaming personality and historian and you may have seen my work or name mentioned in media such as Kotaku, ScrewAttack, MSNBC, ESPN, RecordSetter, Guinness World Records and more.
I've produced over 1,000 pieces of content over the past several years in an effort to bring gaming culture to the eyes of mainstream America. These range from written articles to captured video to promotion of gaming stunts and record attempts. Several of the stories I've broken have gone mainstream, bringing great attention to some of the people in video gaming culture.
My long-term goal has been to show the true culture and history of gaming and gaming culture to a mainstream audience. I don't feel this has ever been done before like it could be or should be. I am at a point where I feel the written form of this can't go much further in helping with this.
Therefore I wish to create an episodic series that takes this to a whole new level. To start it would be a YouTube Series, kicking off this fall. Ideally I would like to bring it to television, something that requires putting together a pilot to show those who could potentially pick it up.
That's where all of you come in. To do it right will require the right equipment, including broadcast quality camera and editing equipment. I already have the connections and the passion to make it fly but a man cannot build a house without the proper tools.
HELP ME CAPTURE GAMING CULTURE FOR THE WORLD TO SEE! Live events, gaming contests and historic events will be captured for all time and all the world to see. This video and television series will be for all of you.... all who love gaming history and culture as deeply as I do.... all who want to see it reach a whole new level.
Help me create this. I thank you all in advance.

Check out some of the kinds of content I have been able to create with limited equipment already at http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOriginalPSP - Here is one video where I visit a historic gaming location yet came away with only enough quality footage for a couple of minutes worth of video- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWsMifeFsRQ
Imagine what I could do with a quality camera and editing equipment.
