Rob McCallum, the creative force who brought us the hit documentary Nintendo Quest, is at it again with a journey into the secrets behind the stunning art on the cover of your favourite video games, and he needs your support to bring it to fruition.

The documentary, called
Box Art, will tell the story behind the world of video game artwork. With over 100 potential interviewees made up of key illustrators and game developers, this could be the most substantial and definitive exploration of the subject.

McCallum is famed for his documentaries into pop art and nostalgia, with credits including Power of Grayskull: The Definitive History of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles documentary Turtle Power.

Rob McCallum says: “No one has told the story of the people who’ve created some of the most iconic images in video game history - but that’s about to change. I’m excited to learn everything about box art from the people responsible. You can only research a subject so much before you start going in circles but hearing the history from those responsible will be an experience you can't replicate reading or by searching on Google.”

The Kickstarter includes many interesting awards, including a chance to own your own unique video game style art and a retro-style lunch box plastered with cool artwork. You can support the Kickstarter by following this link.
