Kaira Mellix 4/5/17 History of Motion Pictures Paper #3 Video Games: The Movie I’d like to start by saying, choosing a documentary to watch for this paper was absolutely no easy task. My Netflix had so many subjects to choose from, and the documentary I finally decided on was The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness. It is a documentary about the inside of Studio Ghibli, the famous animation film studio which produced a lot of beloved movies, such as Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Castle in the Sky, Spirited Away, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle, and a vast amount of other wonderful movies. Unfortunately, something happened and it was taken off of Netflix, so I decided to watch Video Games: The Movie instead. Video Games: The Movie was made in 2014 and was written and directed by Jeremy Snead, it has not won any awards. This documentary is exactly what the title suggests, video games. It’s an educational documentary about how video games are made, marketed, and consumed by looking through the history of gaming and gaming culture through the eyes of the publishers, game developers, and the consumers. This documentary ponders what it means to be a ‘gamer’, a game maker, and the future of games and where they are headed. It also explores the art of storytelling and the video game medium in this extraordinary film about the video game industry and the culture it has created.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
