About

In the world of video game collecting there are two very ditinct groups. Collects and Players. A collector is someone that only collects video games with clear goals to complete collections for specfic systems or one particular genre of game. Often Collectors will keep their games in the shrinkwrapping and display them proudly but never playing the games within the packaging. A player could care less about collecting they just want the newest and hottest games often selling games upon completion to fund the purchase of the next hottest title. There is a gray area where many find themselves Gamers that collect.

There isn't much discussion in the gaming community about the different types of collectors and gamers and I'd like to change that. My film "Gamers in the Wild" will start out with the focus on large video game and console collections then focus on the people behind the collections, why and how they build huge collections. There are yearly trade shows for retro gaming enthusiasts to buy, trade and sell and here the Collectors and Players come together to find what they're looking for from years past. There are second hand game shops that deal in any and all gaming related hardware and software where Collectors and Players both sift through gamings history to complete collections and play classic games. On the other end of the spectrum you have Game Stop's on every corner that buy sell and trade mostly new games where you'll mostly find the players trading in anything they can for store credit to get the newest games to bolster their Gamer Scores and Trophy Collections.

I will seek out a wide range of gamers, collectors, vendors and used game store owners and talk to them about the different types of gamers and collectors and attend trade shows to interview people.

The money will be used to build a new PC for editing high Definition Video as well as buying a new HD Video camera to make the film with. The remainder of the money is for producing the DVDs.
