I like covering events, especially those on the scale of EVO, the largest gaming tournament in the world. It's an exhilarating feeling to be part of something special, from the sheer size of the tournament to the passion from the players to the roar of the crowd. Documenting these events takes patience and anticipation. I end up capturing a lot more footage than I should, and logging each and everyone one of them can be a logistical nightmare.
For EVO 2014 Moments, my goal was to piece together a video with a distinct narrative similar to the show Friday Night Lights. The video slowly progresses, showing a selection of players and spectators to set the mood and scene. Then, around the quarter mark, I introduce additional layers to refine the story. The energy picks up. Intensity rises. In the end, the audience goes across a valley of emotions.
