I can see Viva Amiga as another missed opportunity.
There have been a clear demand for a good documentary about the Amiga phenomenon. There was the money collected by Kickstarter and there was enough time.

But something should be missed from the project because the result in my opinion is not satisfying for the hardcore Amiga fan nor the amateur who has some interest.
It is too superficial for the viewer that has some knowledge about Amiga, and tells too less for the one who knows almost nothing about the possibility that the Amiga meant.

Anyway the first half of the movie was a pleasure for me as being an Amiga addict. There is so few places nowadays where Amiga is mentioned, so we should appreciate everything that tells us from that golden age of computing.

There looks like there is a second part coming.

If you couldn't make it to MAGfest, Viva Amiga is available now on iTunes, Vimeo OnDemand, Amazon, and Google Play among other platforms. For news on possible future screenings, follow the film on Facebook. Can't get enough Amiga articles? You'll be pleased to know that the next installment of my History of the Amiga series is coming soon!

The genie is out of the bottle and no one is that excited anymore I'm afraid. In true Amiga spirit the whole 'when it's done' and reliance on milking our optimism & patience dry has allowed the birth of another lacklustre product

There looks like there is a second part coming.

We won't hold our breath! Life is too short. Congratulations to the team for finally releasing this film but may be everyone should just now move on with their lives.

Just watched it. Nice production. Loved the 3D graphics. I think both Bedrooms to Billions and Viva Amiga will become must have videos alongside the Deathbed Vigil.

Are you trying to find where Commodore's money went?
