´The Nintendo Story´, as told by me

Again, I have been busy with another big project. I have just produced a thirty-minute television documentary on the history of Nintendo, featuring Shigeru Miyamoto, Michael Pachter, Steve Wiebe as well as many fans and experts. The documentary is trying to surprise even the most knowledgable fan of videogames with interesting facts. Did you know that Nintendo was founded in 1889? Did you know that in ´Donkey Kong´, Popeye was originally meant to jump over the barrels? Did you know that the Sony PlayStation started as commission work for Nintendo?

I have received great support from beforemario, Pix'n Love Publishing, EDGE magazine, EGMNOW, various artists participating in the iam8bit exhibition, as well as - of course - from Nintendo and Sony Computer Entertainment.

The documentary is in German. English and Japanese soundbytes are only subtitled, though. And we have taken great care to produce some pretty and pretty self-explanatory slides. The documentary is called ´The Nintendo Story´ and is scheduled to air in two weeks, namely on Friday, November 18th at 9:30pm on ZDFkultur. If you cannot receive the digital channel on your set, you can either watch it on Zattoo or through the ZDF network's streaming portal, the Mediathek.

Alternatively, the documentary is set to be repeated on 3sat the following Sunday, November 20th at 4:30pm. I hope you are able to watch it and I am most interested in your feedback.

EDIT And here is the direct link to the video stream in my tv network's streaming application, the ZDF Mediathek. Enjoy.

Great post! I?m just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well - resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case.

Hey Andreas. The first part is awesome! But who told you, that Mario-Gamers are teenagers and GTA-Gamers adults? On an average Mario-Gamers are older! In the same way Mario Kart vs. Blur. And if Nintendo is doomed: What´s about Sony? Please compare the financial gains of the last decade! And how often Pachter will fail again? Abandon quoting this man!

I think your report is way too negativ. But anyway: Very good research!
