The SVG Podcast: Esports Week – Front Bench Perspectives & Storytelling In Esports

How technology is shaping the storytelling of esports and how gaming is becoming even more fun to watch

It’s a special week on The SVG Podcast: ESports Week! All week long, we will dedicate daily episodes to discussions around the exciting technology and storytelling present and future of the exploding world of esports.

Today, we have a roundtable discussion with some key personalities playing a major role at the front bench of major live esports shows. How do we tell the stories of these major esports events and how does technology play a role?

The discussion includes: Matt Celli, Head of Production Technology, Innovation and Data at NBC Sports and Olympics; Corey Dunn, Executive Producer at NGAGE Esports; Frank LaSpina, Senior Producer of Overwatch Broadcast for Blizzard Entertainment; David Lee, VP, Operations at ESP Gaming; and Dave Stewart, North American LCS Executive Producer and Broadcast Lead for Riot Games.

This interview, moderated by broadcast industry veteran Jeff Jacobs, comes from the stage at our inaugural Esports Production Forum which was hosted last week in Los Angeles.

The SVG Podcast is for the sports-video–production professional looking to keep up with the latest in sports-video–production operations and technology. The program features interviews with some of the biggest, most influential names in the sports-video business talking trends and topics that are making an impact on the industry.
