On hand to introduce the film will be legendary game developer and current president of Intellivision Productions Keith Robinson. Robinson was one of the original Blue Sky Rangers, who were at the core of the Mattel Electronics game design division in the early 1980’s, and pioneered home console gaming. Intellivision Productions has sponsored First Glance Film Festival with a presenter spot.
