New Documentary feature film - Shoot Again - The Resurgence of Pinball
We received this note today and are passing it along! (This is not an endorsement or recommendation of any kind from TG, just sharing the info as asked. It's up to the community to make any determinations or choice on its own to support!)
I’m Blake Faucette, and I’m reaching out today to let you know about a new pinball documentary that I’ve been working on in partnership with Lorien Green. It’s an indie project, but we’re close to the finish line, and have launched a Kickstarter to fund those final steps, including a Blu-ray release with lots of bonus material.
In an era of digital, streaming, cloud-based, and electronic entertainment, pinball is a paradox. With most forms of modern entertainment downloadable to the palm of your hand, how does a 300-pound box of wires and lights survive, and continue to thrive? That’s the story we set out to tell with this documentary.
There are older documentaries on pinball, as well as the upcoming biopic, Pinball: the Man Who Saved the Game, about Roger Sharpe (who is also featured in our film). But we wanted to write the next chapter in pinball’s history. It’s a chapter where an in-person, electronic-yet-kinetic hobby meets up with social media and modern technology, and evolves.
If you’re interested, you can see the trailer on our Kickstarter page, and we’d be grateful if you could help spread the word. Additional images from the film can be found here. Please reach out with any questions.
