An almost interview with the Indie Game: The Movie gang photo
An almost interview with the Indie Game: The Movie gang
by Jonathan Holmes

I came this close to interviewing the creators of Indie Game: The Movie James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot, alongside a couple of the subjects of the film, Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen of Team Meat. I was nervous and tired, but really excited to talk to all of them as I think they are really great. I'm not just saying that because I am in the movie for two seconds and because there is a level called Destructoid in Super Meat Boy. I'm saying that because these people really are great!

Sadly, there were technical problems that erased about 45 minutes of the interview, leaving us to start this video with Edmund McMillen half way finished with answering a question. The question was about what it was like to be the subject of a documentary that may go on to be seen by millions. Then there were the sudden appearances of the star of original Indie Game: The Movie short subject film and Aquaria developer Alec Holowaka, only to have him suddenly disappear, unrecorded and unloved (sorry Alec!). Then there was the fact that this was actually Allistair Pinsof's interview in the first place, and I was really just there for... moral support? 

I'm actually not really sure why I was there. 

Anyway, I'm sad that I didn't to as well in this interview as I had hoped, but I'm really, really grateful that I had the opportunity to be involved it at all. I hope you feel the same when you watch it.
