The 404 1,055: Where we're indie for a day (podcast)

First-time filmmakers Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky guest on today's 404 episode and take us through the process of documenting independent game developers in their new movie, "Indie Game: The Movie."

Most of us conjure images of "Grandma's Boy" when we think about video game developers, but a new documentary "Indie Game: The Movie" goes deep into the lives of a couple independent programmers, and today we're joined by first-time filmmaking duo Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky.

They'll take us through the experience of filming the developers behind Super Meat Boy, Fez, and Braid, and we'll also discuss video games as art and the production similarities between film and the evolution of a video game.

Check out the "Indie Game: The Movie" homepage for screenings in your area, and be sure to follow its Twitter and Facebook pages for more information on the film.
