I never knew about indie video game development until a friend of mine (who works developing video games) told me about an amazing game called Braid. I watched him complete the entire game in one sitting one night in Shanghai while having some beers at his house. That was my introduction to indie gaming. Indie Game: The Movie is a documentary being made about the Indie Game culture, the people who make and the people who play the games.
BlinkWork is currently looking for funding to complete the film. If you are interested in helping head over here.
