House of Game
formed a "nerd poker" tracking group around video games 4 years ago to meet on Thursday nights online - share scripts and material that might not be recognized...and often very self-serving - now more than 300 people. And not self-serving!
trying to break down the wall between hollywood and games people
bringing people together at E3 -- publishers, software, film/movie business, designers
- filmmakers coming to understand that there are different ways to create characters and tell stories
- game designers coming to understand that other industries are actually interested in how they work
- showcasing indie games like Flower, Misadventures of PB Winterbottom, etc
...and making relationships (got distracted here...lost thread while dealing with emails)
