You Meet The Nicest People Making Videogames is a new documentary examining "highly expressive videogames and the people who make them." Filmmaker La Mar Williams started the project a month ago with used equipment from a local community center, interviewing indie game developer friends and others at the recent Game Developers Conference.

He hopes to continue the project this summer by driving around the country and talking to as many independent developers as possible, eventually editing his footage into a documentary and releasing it for free over the internet.

Before he can do that, though, Williams is looking to raise $22,000 to pay for essentials, a crew, and equipment purchases -- a camera, a van, lights, microphones, and a computer for editing, all of which he'll turn over to Silicon Valley De-Bug, his local community center, afterward.

With 66 days left on his project deadline, he's already received more than $6,200 in pledges. Williams is also offering stickers, film credits, signed postcards, inclusion on an email list for the documentary (with photos fromt he road), personal calls, and an interview slot, depending on the size of your contribution.

You can watch a short video with interviews from his work on You Meet The Nicest People Making Videogames so far, which includes clips of developers Gregory Weir (The Majesty of Colors), Amon26 (All of Our Friends Are Dead), and Anna Anthropy (Redder), at the project's Kickstarter page.
