Caines Arcade

Vimeo DirektArcade

Ich hatte letzte Woche so viel Arbeit und Stress, dass ich gestern alle ungelesenen Feedreader-Items (dürften so rund 5000 ungelesene gewesen sein) einfach weggeklickt habe und es tut mir um keine der verpassten Stories leid – außer dieser hier, die Minidoku um Caines Arcade und den Reddit-Flashmob in der Papp-Spielhalle eines 9jährigen. Ihr kennt das zwar schon alle, ich will das aber trotzdem hier haben.

Hier noch ein Interview mit Caine und seinem Papa:

Nine-year-old Caine Monroy became an online sensation this week for building an elaborate cardboard arcade inside his dad’s used auto parts store. At first, business was slow — that is, until his first customer, filmmaker Nirvan Mullick, was inspired to organize a flashmob through Facebook and Reddit, sending a slew of worthy gamers upon Caine’s Arcade and capturing the magic day in a short film.

Now that the video has gone viral, the Caine’s Arcade Facebook page boasts over 45,000 Likes, with fans and supporters having raised over $100,000 for his scholarship fund in just three days.

Shira Lazar caught up with the young entrepreneur, his father George, and Producer/Director Nirvan Mullick to get their takes on the whirlwind week and, of course, play in the arcade!
