eSports (electronic sports) are gaming events, with participants usually competing for prizes. eSports build big followings and viewer communities, so it’s no surprise that the number of associated videos and streams are on the rise.
Top Tips eSports Video
- Find your style. Don’t try to be everything all at once, better to find your niche and do it well than to attempt to cover a lot of things, poorly.
- Choose your casting method carefully. Play-by-play will require a host who can quickly and articulately describe what’s going on in an engaging way. Colour casting (or analytical casting) makes use of interesting ‘padding’ like facts about the game-play, jokes, and strategies.
- Keep continuity within your branding. Templates are useful for this as you can change a professionally made product to fit your colours and style, easily.
- The cake is a lie.
