I received a location sound call in mid- September to join a production team that was embedded with the professional video game team, Evil Genuises, to capture content for a documentary series being made by Valve. The experience was my first foray into the exciting world of eSports and all that surrounds this emerging industry. Our cameras and microphones followed the Evil Geniuses Dota 2 team as they trained and prepared for an upcoming competition in China. During the time of our production work, another crew was busy in Malaysia...following a rival gamer team that was also in training mode.
The documentary, True Sight, is being rolled out in episodic fashion and here is the trailer:
