Star Trek's JJ Abrams and Valve's Gabe Newell D.I.C.E. SUMMIT 2013

I love this for so so many reasons. Not only are two amazing storytellers from two different genres talking candidly about their craft, but there is also the possibility of JJ Abrams and Gabe Newell working on a movie or videogame together. I love the way Gabe and JJ go back and forth and point out the flaws and drawbacks to the other's medium, be it videogames or film. Definitely worth the watch.


  1. I can't help wonder what sort of movies would result from this collaboration. Exciting and mysterious for sure, I hope the movies will remind us of the differences between games and movies in either a tongue and cheek way, or a subtle (maybe even conceptual) way.

    1. Agreed. It will definitely be a tough challenge to pull off well, but if done right it could be a new genre of entertainment completely.
