Viva Amiga Documentary

Most of the active Amiga community should have heard about this, but like most things it doesn't hurt to promote a bit more.

Basically this is a documentary regarding the Amiga History, it's influences, the culture shock and its legacy.

In 1985, a powerful new kind of computer was born. It was 10 years ahead of its time, and ready to take on Microsoft, IBM and Apple for control of the PC market. The Amiga computer revolutionized video, multimedia and digital art, with Andy Warhol being a big advocate. It was also known for being a fantastic video games machine. Despite the computer's manufacturer going bankrupt in early 1990's, the Amiga has a huge cult following worldwide to this day. This film documents the rise and fall of the Amiga in the marketplace, and gives an inside look at the passionate and eccentric community that surrounds it. We've got in-depth interviews with the Amiga's designers, engineers and advocates, and we'll be shooting even more. This is a compelling and unique documentary, rich with animation and a distinctive style. Viva Amiga is also being written and directed by an Amiga user - Zach Weddington

Rather than just a simple historic documentary it also shows the impact and nowadays uses both the classic machines and New generations ones...
In the clip above it goes beyond and shows music artists using A1200's and other classic machines - covering the Blip Fest 2011 show in NYC...

It looks pretty high quality... Actually more professional quality is the word I should use!

But bear in mind that this documentary will only go ahead if the sum $25000 dollar is reached on the Kickstarter pledge site.

Check out this pledge video, and consider contributing...
