A Note from the Director Richard James Cook
Here we are, coming up on the one year birthday of the release of Surviving Indie in about 5 weeks on Dec. 19th. I wanted to take this moment to thank you all for the amazing support of the film and all the stories of ways it helped you in your own journey. I'm very humbled to have had this effect on those who watched it.
Now the buzz has faded and I'm moving on to new projects to continue my passion. The film will continue to be available, but we will not be making anymore updates to this site - and I've also combined the landing page for the URL with that of my previous movie "Pixel Poetry".
Once again, thank you all for the support - and keep creating.
It's official! Surviving Indie is now released and out for you to watch! You can get the movie right now at a very special 40% off for our launch week exclusively on Steam by clicking here.
Remember, with buying the film, you also get the special edition for FREE when it arrives in March. We hope it makes a great holiday gift for the game developer in your life. We would like to thank everyone for all the amazing support for the movie, and we hope you enjoy the film. Onward!

Alongside other notable filmmakers like Rob McCallum (Nintendo Quest), Jeanette Garcia and Daryl Rodriguez (World 1-1), the discussion on gaming in film was an inspirational look into the stories that permeate the culture we all know and love.
