Hi fellow pinheads!!
Just wanted to gauge interest on something...
I just listened to an interview with the Black Knight, in which he told the amazing story of how Big Bang Bar came to be. How over 100 dedicated collectors/enthusiasts came together with passion, to create a machine that almost didnt happen!
I think that this story would be a great candidate for someone to make a documentary on! You could round up some of the people that worked on it for interviews, use some footage of the game, and perhaps get with Chicago Gaming Company on their plans for a remake of it! Hell, maybe by the time this doc comes out it could coincide with the release of CGC’s version of the pin!!
If you are not familiar with the story, you should definitely listen to the Black Knight tell it!
You can find it on a certain notorious podcast, episode 55, titled “the story of Big Bang Bar”.
I myself do not have the funds, nor the cognitive capacity to head the creation of a documentary film, but maybe theres a member of this Pinside community who will.
Tell me what your thoughts!
