    These guys have been documenting the growth of this little scene out of pocket for almost two years, so please spread the word, and blog, twitter, whatever the trailer as much as possible!

    Also in it: the human avatar of This Spartan Life host Damian Lacedamion. I believe his name is Chris Burke.

    This looks great! I saw Nullsleep and Bit Shifter on tour and was blown away. I wrote a brief interview with Bit Shifter a few months ago, great guy. You can listen to it here: http://marioa.squarespace.com/marios-digital-cafe-blog/2007/10/23/interview-with-chiptune-musician-bit-shifter.html

    Saw this film last summer at The Tank and was thoroughly impressed. It’s a rich look into the history and culture that informs the chiptunes scene. These folks are true artists, and they’re even better when you see them live!
