Help with Retro-Gaming documentary

Hi all,

I am a filmmaker from Melbourne, Australia and for the past few months I have been working on a documentary about retro-gaming and it's recent resurgence in the mainstream. I have hit a few stumbling blocks and I am in need of help from the gaming community.

I am looking for someone with a sizeable retro-gaming collection. Is there anyone out there that would like to be in front of a camera and have their story told? Potentially at film festivals in Australia and around the world? I have approached a few collectors and, even though they were interested in making the doco, they couldn't commit the time to it. I am now searching the community IRL and online for someone who would be interested.

Secondly, is there anyone that has a story they would like to tell, even if they don't have a collection? This can be anything, whether it's something personal to you or something you provide to the community that is retro-gaming related.

Thirdly, if I started a crowdfunding page, would people be willing to donate money? Would you be interested in seeing a documentary like this? Would you like to be involved in the documentary? I would be hoping to raise around $3,000 which I don't think is unrealistic. On the crowdfunding page I would show a bit of footage as well so people can get an idea of it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What are the investment terms? Or do you just want money for nothing?

I'm not asking for money now, I am putting a feeler out there to see what/if any kind of interest is around in seeing a documentary about the retro-gaming community. If I were to find a collector to take part in the doco and get things moving obviously then I would start to elaborate more on where the money would go.

At the moment the main things is actually find stories in the community to tell
