In Indie Game the Movie, there were 3 designer teams. 2 solo people, Jonathon Blow, and Phil Harrison. The team of two was Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes. Both of the solo developers have an internet reputation for being pretentious. Tommy seemed to me to be overly reactive to some of the things that happened, but Edmund was pretty awesome (though he swore as often as a Californian says "like")
We were shown this movie to learn about other perspectives game developers can have. We needed to see the differences in the mindset between indie developers and non-indie developers. We needed to see how personal indie developers took their games.
