Steve Jobs’ Choices Documentary

A new film called “Steve Jobs’ Choices” is on IndieGoGo, produced by 8-Bit Generation who also produced “The Commodore Wars.”  The documentary looks intriguing from the posted trailer.  They have assembled some impressive interviews with people like John Sculley, Mike Markkula, Steve Wozniak, Andy Hertzfeld, Al Alcorn, Dan Kottke, Larry Tesler, Jay Elliot, Paul Terrel, Chuck Peddle, Alvy Ray Smith, Steven Levy, Alan Cooper, Stan Veit, Michael Swaine, and Paul Freiberg.

About a month remains to complete their funding goal and the primary footage is completed.  A longer 20 minute premium edition is planned for backers of the project.

“In everyone’s life, there are some key moments where we must face important choices, so important that will shape our lives forever. Steve Jobs made many important decisions and by understanding what lies behind those, we can learn something for ours.  We have talked with the most important colleagues and friends of his, to discover his thoughts, fears and aha moments: how he was driven by a vision and his ungovernable and obsessive passion. And we have a story that must be told!”
