ABOUT THE PROJECT
At PlayStation we have seen that gaming magic play out between Game Makers and Game Players for more than twenty years, but all too often that dialogue ends when gamers reach the end credits of their favourite games.
But what if that wasn’t the end? What if those incredibly talented game creators got the chance to meet their most dedicated fans to keep the conversation going? This is the core idea behind a series of short films we are producing this year: can that gaming magic happen in real life and in person?
PlayStation is inherently a brand filled with great storytellers with narratives that inspire us all. To that end, we present to you a new series: Makers & Gamers.
