The BEEP documentary project has interviewed countless video game music composers and industry members. While footage from each of these interviews is set to appear in the final documentary film, releasing September 30th, 2016, the BEEP team has allowed public access to the full interviews as "webisodes" when sponsored. Among the project's interviewees were four involved with the music of the Tomb Raider franchise - Nathan McCree (Tomb Raider I, II & III), Alex Wilmer (sound designer/music supervisor/audio director on Tomb Raider: Legend through Rise of the Tomb Raider), Jason Graves (Tomb Raider, 2013) and Wilbert Roget, II (Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris).
BEEP explains that "interviews for documentaries often take an hour or more, and yet only a few minutes is ever used in the film". They've made the content available for the benefit of research and fandom, but the project is requesting financial support for this to be possible. The full interviews with Nathan McCree and Jason Graves are available from the selection. BEEP: A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY OF GAME SOUND is an unprecedented transcript effort by Karen Collins and Chris Greening and is available for preorder now.
