Arcane Duels - Gen Con - First Ever Tournament Recording
« on: April 13, 2015, 09:06:47 PM »
Greetings Mages!

We just wanted to announce something special for this upcoming Gen Con tournament. Arcane Duels will be there but not as competitors this year. We want to bring you real footage from games at the main tournament in addition to interviews with players, spell book analysis, and commentary. The hope is that we can all become better players by watching the contenders play!

We're very excited to be given this opportunity, and we are honored to work with Arcane Wonders. Mage Wars is one of our greatest passions and we hope to record a wonderful tournament. If you have any comments, questions or suggestions please add to the thread!

See you in the Arena!

Oh awesome! This sounds awesome. I live way to far away to ever attend one of these events so this is the only way I'll be able to see the games. Thanks so much for trying this, hope everything works out!

Wow! This is great!
What would have been awesome is if you were able to have/add live comments to games you are recording.

Long overdue. Thanks for this.

I assume you're going to film these games at the same overhead camera angle as your other work? That would be great if you could.

It will involve building rigging and many test runs. Hoping for something like they do for Magic The Gathering Tournaments.

We highly doubt we will be able to stream those matches, but they will definately be added to youtube.

Do I get to stop by the booth and give some color commentary?

The current set up is so Ghetto it's hilarious. But we will create something much better for GenCon

Laddinface, You can say anything you want as long as it's nothing negative toward our fabulous setup, the Anvil Throne Warlord, or myself... Coshade's fair game, say whatever you want about that guy.

Our setup currently includes a cat scartcher with a plastic flimsy office supply holder balancing on top and a tray on top of that. The tray is leaning off balance so the camera can hang off directly above the game board. How does the tray balance you say? Well an expensive laptop of course!

The camera's not going to fall into the arena right?
