As gaming and esports continues its phenomenal rise, 39 Pictures has been working with publishers, teams and gamers on producing enhanced video content.
We’ve used our experience of working within elite level sports broadcasting to show how this can translate into the esports and gaming arena.
That’s meant working on the FIFA eWorld Cup at the O2 in London. We provided unique behind the scenes access for EA Sports in North America.
We then took a team to Bucharest to cover the Fut Champions Cup I and II in Romania. This meant an intense amount of filming, following by a super fast turnaround edit for European television – by quick, we mean a day locked in a hotel room to edit 30 hours of footage into a 60 minute show!
Later we produced 2 x hour-long films for Turner Broadcast in North America. These were mixed in 5.1 surround sound.
The team also works with gamers to increase the quality of their output, to make it feel more like Sky Sports and less like self-shot social content. This showcases their talent – and helps sell their skills to higher level sponsors.
