Beep is a documentary history of game sound from the Victorian arcades through to today, with a special focus on video game sound, but also including mechanical games and pinball. Beep is a feature-length film, a series of webisodes and DVD extras, a book, and a collection of resources here on this website. Beep began with a Kickstarter campaign in August/September 2014, and began filming in October 2014. Beep the film and book are scheduled for release in summer 2016. In the meantime, we have been releasing webisodes of our interviews for your enjoyment. These are free for viewers, but we encourage you to help us cover the costs by sponsoring a webisode. Beep's interview list includes nearly 100 game composers, sound designers, programmers, voice artists, and implementation specialists.
Beep was filmed at GameSoundCon (Los Angeles); Distant Worlds (Toronto); MAGfest (Washington); AES for Games (London); Game Developers' Conference (San Francisco, March 2015), Seattle, Vancouver, Montreal and Tokyo.
