"Reformat the Planet" Premieres Internationally in Melbourne

I have just been informed that the 2PlayerProductions film "Reformat The Planet" has been accepted into the Melbourne International Film Festival! It will be screening at 9:30 PM on Monday, July 28th at "Kino". This will be the overseas premier of "Reformat The Planet" and we should consider ourselves blessed! First we had Marcin's 8bit in Melbourne, then Glomag in Sydney for This Spartan Life, now this! The Australian scene is being blessed from the get-go.

"Few people would consider an original Nintendo or Gameboy console as a musical instrument, but for an emerging culture these are the tools for producing something unlike anything heard before. Called ‘ChipTunes', this inventive spin on electronic music takes grainy beats and 8-bit samples to create a retro-futuristic sound, equally at home in 80s sci-fi as on the dance floor. Paul Owens' documentary introduces us to the major players in the ChipTunes movement, focusing primarily on the New York scene and covering Manhattan's Blip Festival, where the world's best 8-bit artists get to strut their stuff."
