thinkpublic produced Playmakers, a documentary about the future of play in public space. The project, in partnership with NESTA, explores ways in which playful public interactions are creeping back into our everyday lives as gaming becomes more social. The film follows game designers Alex Fleetwood and Holly Gramazio on their journey towards developing a brand new game. Along the way we take in the views of participants and experts in the field like net pioneer Howard Rheingold and anthropologist Mike Wesch.
Playmakers premiered at the Sheffield International Documentary festival in 2009.
