The dramatic film showing the amazing UK gaming scene that appeared in the 1980s.
The Button Bashers film is a 100min Feature film tribute to the UK gaming scene that appeared in the 1980s. Starring Ewen Macintosh (The Office/Little Britain) this will be made innovatively: part-scripted scenes, part-interview / docudrama.
We want to make a cinematic tribute to those games, the Programmers, the Publishers and the Gamers. So if you owned a Commodore 64, Sinclair Spectrum, Atari VCS, Amstrad, Vic-20, Apple II, Dragon 32, BBC, Texas Instruments TI99 and even a ZX81 - then this is the film for you.
The film The Button Bashers will feature filmed segments of the era. So if the names Ocean Software, Imagine, U.S. Gold and Llamasoft mean anything to you - You will love this - It will like be living back in the golden age of gaming.
We have a large set of interviewees from the best gaming era to be a part of the film. Imagine seeing Jon Hare (Sensible Software) telling tells of the fun he had in the industry making Wizball for the Commodore 64 and then actors playing out the scenes alongside. It will make interesting viewing and a beautiful tribute to the days of Quickshot II Joysticks, Novaloads and Crash Magazine.
Think The Film 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE and you will know the kind of film we are trying to create. Its never been done for this part of the gaming world in the UK.
