    Put footage of Amiga porn games in the film's preview/trailer to draw in viewers.

    Kiki Stockhammer would accomplish the same thing, I imagine.

    I hope it sticks with the Hi-Toro and Commodore era, and leaves the post Commodore stuff out.
    There was a time when a $600 Amiga could not only emulate a $2000 Mac perfectly, it could also provide better performance than the real thing.

    Excellent it's about time that we had a film about the great Amiga computer.

    I remember seeing a docu about 'the last days of Commodore' or something like that, that was good already.

    Ars Technica did what I feel is the definitive history of the Amiga a few years back. You might want to make sure you hit everything by checking the outline of your film against this article.

    That was an amazing article that was a lot of fun to read, Boatofcar - thanks for linking to it. I might have to check this documentary out, too.

    Byte had an awesome pre-Commodore article about the Amiga that I read back in the day, had me all hyped up about the Amiga.

    I hope you can include some stuff about where the hardware ended up, like CD32, but that might be tough.
