DIGITAL JOURNAL -- Frank Sacks, a Hollywood writer/producer who invented “The Movie Game,” has launched a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo. This campaign has a funding goal of $25,000, which is being raised to reinvent the game for a modern audience by integrating the board game with modern technology. Sacks is a writer/producer who was born in Chicago and attended both Boston University and San Francisco State, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in film. He is a former ICM talent and motion picture agent and was an international film sales agent whose financial background included working for two Wall Street Investment Banks, Morgan Stanley and Smith Barney Harris Upham. He created The Movie Game in 1981 during the film writer’s strike. The original Movie Game was based on his own real life experiences in the movie business.
