(Closed) EXPERIENCED VIDEO MAKER
For you, esports is consumed best before and after the matches, when every teams and leagues are producing crazy good video content. You can’t get enough of TikTok but wonder why more gaming brands aren’t on it yet. You find your inspiration on Twitch or by watching online media like VICE, because this is where the future of video content is being decided. And you genuinely think that esports is the sport of the digital generation—so you can’t understand why more brands haven’t jumped in yet.
