I'm a filmmaker in New York City, currently working on a feature documentary about Starcraft; it's history as a franchise, community, and competitive e-sport. I'm hoping to get a lot of shooting done in the next month or so (MLG Columbus, Dreamhack, etc.) so I decided to put together a teaser to show the community what I'm up to, hopefully generate a bit of interest, and give the players a better sense of what I'm trying to accomplish. You'll notice that the video is centered on the tournament circuit, which is really just one aspect of the project - I'd include the others but I simply haven't shot them yet. Over the course of the summer, I hope to interview some of the more enduring names in Starcraft, so that their accounts of the game's history can help structure the film as it weaves back and forth between the game's birth in the east and current growth in the west. On this topic, I'm very excited to fly out and film this weekend at MLG Columbus. The inclusion of some Korean players - arguably to the detriment of some non-Koreans - is at the very least an exciting storyline.
Anyway, the teaser is live, though I'll password protect it soon since I haven't licensed the track and this is really just for the community to see. Once I'm closer to a finished film, I'll release a full trailer through the proper channels.
Finally, I'd like to thank members of EG, TeamLiquid, and everyone else who has allowed me to film/interview them thus far, and future thanks to everyone going forward.
