“Video Games in the Crosshairs: Speaking of Games…” by Calvin Tran
Age 17, Jennison, MI
About this film:
“I am surrounded by tech-minded people and among them are very gamer-enthused guys. When I saw this video contest, I knew, as a film maker, that it is my job to bring to light the perspective of people who are not represented by the media…So, I got my friends together and interviewed them, watched them game, watch them interact and what I witnessed opened my mind; these people become alive. There was something with becoming a hero (or a villain or just someone) of a story that turned on the fire of their being – it was a communal thing, it was an individual thing, it was a human thing. That’s when I knew this film was something worth making.”
