Which means it should be less of a promotional piece and more of a documentary.
Which is a good thing. Although this looks to focus quite a bit on the expansive and massive Call of Duty esports scene.
Filmed across North America, the UK & Europe including the D-Day beaches, the story in CODumentary is told by developers, fans, professional players and numerous games experts, who describe in rich detail what makes the game so special and why it's been so successful from launch to the present day. Jonathan Beales is an industry professional with over 31 years experience in video games media & marketing spanning print, radio, web and television.
“One of the biggest challenges making the film was encapsulating a 15 year timeline into 93 minutes,” says producer Jonathan Beales. “I was very fortunate to work with a lot of great people whose input and contribution really helped make this happen. It’s a rich story of evolution told through the eyes of games developers, fans, industry experts and professional players.
There aren't nearly enough videogame specific documentaries being produced, so we're excited to check this out.
