Kickstarter Funded Documentary 'From Bedrooms to Billions: The Amiga Years' Set To Celebrate Commodore's Colourful Past

The-Amiga-Years-KickstarterWithout the Commodore Amiga you can wave goodbye to countless franchises, key developers, monumental gaming moments, and of course a plethora of good memories we've all had with the home computer powerhouse. With countless avenues to explore, the team behind the fantastic Bedroom To Billions documentary are back and have turned to Kickstarter to fund their newest venture, From Bedrooms to Billions: The Amiga Years - a 90 minute feature film covering the influence of the Amiga and how it pushed the games industry to new heights.

As the 30th anniversary of the Amiga draws ever near, there's never been a better time to talk about the good Commodore's computer has brought over the years. Following a similar format to their last project, Anthony and Nicola Caulfield are gearing up to interview a wide range of important figures from the computer's heyday all with the aim of documenting the Amiga's history as best as possible. Understanding the global impact the Amiga had, the Bedrooms To Billions team already have plans underway to go further afield to meet with key US and other European developers, musicians, demosceners, publishers and journalists. Needless to say we're expecting something big at the end of all this.

With just over 60 hours remaining on their Kickstarter campaign, the film-making duo have already exceeded their goal of £50,000 and are currently luring in more support through their expansive list of stretch goals. For those interested in this project overall, pledges of £10 and upwards will secure yourself a viewing of the documentary, while more generous donations will be met with signed merchandise and other gaming trinkets.
