Crowdfunding Film About Autistic Pinball Champion


As mentioned in our post about the short documentary last month, the makers of Wizard Mode are looking to turn the story of world-class pinballer, Robert Gagno, into a full length feature. The teaser for the film already received a Vimeo Staff Pick and they’ve just launched a crowdfunding campaign, Wizard Mode on Indiegogo.

Diagnosed with autism at the age of three, the documentary aims to give audiences a closer look at Gagno’s personal struggle to become more independent while, at the same time, producing the kind of movie pinball fans can be proud of!

Watch the promo video below to learn more about this beautiful film project. (And make sure to watch right to the end!)

Short Documentary: Wizard Mode


I’ve been waiting for this since the day my friends, Vancouver-based filmmakers, Salazar told me about their project. Wizard Mode, follows champion pinballer, Robert Gagno, as he battles the international competitive pinball world and the day-to-day challenges of living with autism. There is so much in this little portrait, I love it.

Keep in mind this is the short film version of what Salazar hopes will become a feature-length documentary (crowdfunding campaign to start in September). Watch “Wizard Mode” below!
