Dune video game documentary to support the forthcoming animated series

TL;DR
A documentary on a Dune related video game to generate interest in the forthcoming animated series.
– The exact game will be chosen by the Spice DAO community.
– Spice DAO will be featured front and center as a partner in its production.

PROPOSAL
The Dune franchise encompasses a total of 11 video games with highlights being Dune II (1992) which defined RTS games as a genre and two titles planned for release in 2022 including Dune: Spice Wars (Dune: Spice Wars on Steam) which is in Early Access on Steam.

Preservation Quest would create not only a documentary telling the story of the development and community around a video game based in the Dune universe (to be chosen by the Spice DAO) but also auxiliary content such as digital museum exhibits (Online Exhibits — Google Arts & Culture) and numerous 60 second documentaries to generate hype for it and the forthcoming animation.

This would allow the Spice DAO to reach and relate to a far more diverse audience who may otherwise not be exposed to their productions.

PRECEDENTS
With the community and expertise of the Spice DAO to draw from Preservation Quest would be able to offer the first (much less video game based) documentary to have a substantial presence in the NFT ecosystem:

Posting pages from development documents, concept art, snippets of interviews, and much more as tie ins to generate buzz for the documentary are all options. PQ and the Spice DAO would be setting precedents for what multimedia truly means in the 21st Century.

YOUR PROJECT TITLE
A Preservation Quest production is unique in and off itself: this documentary won’t just document the history of a video game, but will imbue the work itself with what makes video games powerful.

Zaniness, off the wall insanity, a touch of madness, and creativity honed through having a Team brought together because of their part in 8 video game documentary and related productions are powerful forces to call upon.

BUDGET & TIMELINE
– Timeline: We’d work closely with the Spice DAO to time the release of our documentary to best benefit marketing for the forthcoming animation.

– Budget: $850,000 which comes out to $340,000 per broadcast hour.
— This is significantly lower than the industry average.

Really respect the work your non-profit plans to do. I learned more about the history of video games by reading David Kushner’s “Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture” and watching Blake Harris’ documentary “Console Wars”.
