For those interested in documentaries about the history of arcade games + pinball, I'm proud to announce my involvement as executive producer on ARCADE DREAMS (https://arcadedocumentary.com/), an upcoming radical new series that tells the complete story of arcades and arcade games from the early 1900s to today and beyond. The team behind it includes the director of "Viva Amiga" and we just recently launched our KICKSTARTER campaign (https://bit.ly/ArcadeDoc) which includes cool exclusives from legendary artists like Rich Davies, ZombieYeti and others.

We've already shot over 40% of the documentary and we expect to include interviews with such good folk as Gary Stern, the Sharpes, Jack Danger, Doc Mack, George Gomez and many others, who you can see here: https://arcadedocumentary.com/featuring. Without rambling on for too long, please check out our official trailer and if you wanna support our efforts and the film, please feel free to be a part of it via Kickstarter here: https://bit.ly/ArcadeDoc

Oh and here's a cool SEGA-based video that IMOTO ARCADE helped us create for IGN, just to give you an idea of where this is all headed.
