Really looking forward to seeing this, looks great.

It still astounds me to this day that in all the various computer history programs i have seen on TV, the Amiga or Commodore for the matter never really get a mention. Did it really make such a small impact?  bollox to that. Not everything groundbreaking was done by M$ and Apple.
I know the Amiga wasnt such  a big a hit in the states as it was here in the UK/Europe, but still, Commodore was still pretty huge and breaking new grounds for its time. This film i think will help show that,  great stuff.

On a slightly different note,  did the Amiga or Commodore  make any sort of dent in the Japanense market in it's day?  im guessing next to nothing but i never really heard much reports. Maybe it wasnt a target for the big C ?

Good luck with the film & i hope it does well. the Amiga deserves it.

No pancakes option huh. The world's gone to hell in a hand basket and no mistake.

History is written by the winners. They probably never mention Amiga on purpose sadly. Thank goodness the Amiga did sell millions and millions of machines. So maybe if we are lucky that will help it to not be forgotten.

Wow, why all the hate for this?  There are 10 people who are not going to buy it.  Reasons??  Money?  Artistic differences? Atari fans?  :-)

The poll should have been modified slightly considering this is an Amiga forum.

-I am going to buy it.
-I am going to borrow it from a friend who will buy it.
-I am going to downnload it from BitTorrent the second it's available.
-@t@ri Rvl3z!!!

I think that would get you more accurate numbers..

Just thought I'd repost the link to the kickstarter page, to keep anyone who might be interested from having to search back in the thread.. ;-)
