EVENT:

Live Celebrity Esports Tournament – Fireball Whiskey – Dragon’s Throne

DATE:

August 20, 2021

CLIENT:

York Productions on behalf of Fireball Whiskey

Client Brief

York Productions approached Thunder Gaming to produce and broadcast a live gaming event across multiple streaming channels showcasing Fireball Whiskey and celebrity gamers.

Event

event
Runtime: 2.5 hours

Set in Thunder's dedicated Esports Arena, ten of today's biggest Call of Duty streamers broke into two teams to compete in a series of intensifying CoD matches. Fireball custom designed two unique 4D gaming chairs for the event, anointed “Dragon’s Thrones,” and the players had to take a shot of Fireball Whiskey before rotating onto the special seat (21+ event). The chairs were created to physically react to gameplay actions and elicited fun
reactions from the competitors throughout the 2.5 hour live show. Hashtags #FireballDragonsThrone and #IgniteTheNite were used to share updates and event related posts on social media.

Broadcast

The broadcast utilized a total of 7 cameras (2 POV Lipstick Cams, 2 Stage Cams, 2 locked off team reaction cams, 1 center stage wide cam, and 1 JIB) connected to our HD Mobile Broadcast Unit. Audio was tracked in-house and in-game with COMMs and a separate audio line was set up for the Host Voice. Thunder’s gaming tournament experience, broadcasting expertise, and audience knowledge combined to achieve a successful broadcast for the Client.

Creative Development

Thunder Gaming accepted the challenge of executing a livestream gaming event for York Productions on behalf of their client Fireball Whisky with less than 20 days lead time. Thunder’s turnkey expertise, in-house resources, and dedicated Esports Arena made this a successful Client activation. The project required the
development of a full Run of Show, graphics package design and implementation, set design and build, lighting logistics, crewing and equipment, and solving the
complexities of the tournament concept with a unique ruleset which required professional Call of Duty players to rotate on the Fireball Whiskey Dragon’s Throne.
Thunder broadcasting the stream to SYMFUHNY’s Twitch channel (3.4M followers), landed a homepage feature on Twitch, and distributed the livestream to all 10 celebrity player channels.
