Gaming culture documentary seeks Kickstarter funding

Area 5, best known for documentary work like I Am Street Fighter and Grounded: Making The Last Of Us, announced today a series of TV-style documentaries about video game culture.

Called Outerlands: Season One, the six-part series will investigate areas like game preservation, e-sports and how games impact human relationships. Area 5, made up of people involved in The 1Up Show, is seeking $210,000 in Kickstarter funding.

"Videogames are art. Art is culture," stated the Kickstarter pitch. "Within any culture are beautiful traditions, heartfelt passions, and incredible, unbelievable stories to be told. That's where Outerlands comes in."
