“Box Art - A Gaming Documentary” will explore everything about box art, cover art, the artists responsible for making these images, their processes and more! This is your chance to help make this film a reality, secure a copy, and snag some exclusive content and items. Before game trailers and the Internet age, even before magazines, our first contact with video games was the cover art on the front of the box. That’s the image that “sold” the game. It was the promise of an experience, and an extrapolation of game play regardless of the game’s actual graphical capability.
But who created those images? Why was it on a box? Why did some games have different covers in different parts of the world?
What lead to the change between covers that were painted on canvas and covers that were designed in a computer?
This exciting new documentary will look at video game box art from all eras, for both consoles and PC, foreign and domestic releases and variations, and showcase both the famous and infamous stories that surround the gaming cover art we know and love.
