Mediajuice Studios has announced its Kickstarter campaign for its indie documentary film, Video Games: The Movie, has surpassed its funding goal and will be able to complete post-production. The studio has also announced new stretch goals.

The initial target was $60,000 and 563 backers pledged $69,901. The project still has 19 days left on the clock, and the money raised so far will be used to “fund post-production on the film, to include editing, a musical score, motion graphics and the acquisition of licensed archival clips.”

Mediajuice has also announced several new stretch goals:

$80k: A celebrity voice over narration; $100k: Purchasing rights to use popular songs in the film; and $120k: A musical score created by a famous band and/or composer.

“Video Games: The Movie is about an industry that I grew up with and love, the video game industry. We want people to gain an understanding of our industry and we want to dispel many of the outlandish fallacies that currently plague it,” said Jeremy Snead, director of the film and president of Mediajuice Studios.

“The crowd funding route allowed us to go out to a community of like-minded people, who are as passionate about this industry as we are. We are eternally grateful to them for helping to bring this movie to the silver screen. Thank you.”

At E3 2013, the Mediajuice team plans to capture additional industry interviews with a focus on international developers and next generation platforms.

The film studio has also released a new video on its Kickstarter page, and in the clip, industry leaders discuss the ongoing “violence debate” as it relates to video games.
