(1922-2014)

 

Ralph H. Baer, known as "The Father of Videogames" is the subject of our new documentary currently in development.  President George W. Bush awarded Baer the National Medal of Technology for inventing the home console for video games and inspiring the birth of the video game industry. 

Director Sean Tiedeman and Producer Krystle-Dawn Willing spent time with Baer at his home in New Hampshire during April of 2012 and captured footage infused with his limitless inspiration, creativity, and passionate spirit.

* The filmmakers are currently gathering additional photographs, video content, and interview subjects that may be useful in telling Mr. Baer's story.  If you have anything that you would like to contribute which may potentially be presented in the documentary, please click here to contact our producer, Krystle-Dawn Willing.

"All I did was come up with what I thought was a fun idea that was the result of a little box that was attached to a television set. It just grew and grew and grew."
