I wanted to give an update on the status of the film. We are nearing the finish line and while I cannot give details at this time there will be a major announcement in the coming weeks regarding Sons of Starcraft.
This project has grown beyond what any of us had anticipated or dreamed of.
We have had unbridled access to and been gifted the chance to speak with the people who make e-Sports what it is today. I have personally had the opportunity to be in the field with my camera at a huge amount of events, tournaments, qualifiers, and in the best studios making content today. I have flown all over the world following Tasteless and Artosis through several years of their lives, recording hundreds of hours of footage and have had the opportunity not just to see them grow but to see e-Sports grow as well.
All of this is because of you.
Artists always like to think that they are doing something new, that they have broken untouched ground. I don’t know if anyone else has ever done something quite like this before but I can tell you there are things in this film no one has ever seen or will have access to after its completion.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the community for their support, trust, and most importantly their patience to allow our small band of nerds the time necessary to cover this story and the ability to make the film that e-sports deserves.
Sons of Starcraft
This is the first trailer to let everyone get a glimpse at our vision.
Thanks to everyone who made this possible. This project has far exceeded my own expectations and ambitions. I had more to film than I ever dreamed of and because of that, the Post Production schedule has been shifted. As of now the film is scheduled to be released for Spring 2013.
Directed and Shot by Jeff Alejos
Post Production Supervisor: Dan Adams
Artwork: Ian Ryge
Music: “Lofticries” by Purity Ring
Here are a few stills taken from last nights GSL finals. I have never seen a better toss game than the show Squirtle put on last night! Its a shame he lost but you can’t deny MVP is one of the best after 4 GSL championships.
After traveling to four countries in the course of a month, the stress of constant travel was beginning to take its toll on the guys. Here we see Tasteless enjoying free Swedish Healthcare.
