Twitch Studios' upcoming mini-documentary features a Big Buck HD player
Twitch Studios is producing a mini-documentary called Ironsights, following a Twitch community member who made a name herself in competitive Big Buck HD—an arcade style hunting game.
A full trailer is being released today.
"There are a lot of amazing stories to tell about the Twitch community which rarely get the attention they deserve," Marcus "djWHEAT" Graham, Director of Twitch Studios, said in a statement. "With Twitch Studios, we are looking to shine a light on these stories and celebrate our community. A great example of this is Ironsights, which is how Sara Erlandson, one of our community members, made a name for herself in the highly competitive Big Buck HD scene."
With Ironsights, Twitch Studios is experimenting with original, community-focused content—and it's just the start of the studios' documentary features.
The 22-minute film follows Erlandson, a Wisconsin-based bar owner, Big Buck HD star, and Twitch streamer, as she heads to Austin, Texas for the Big Buck HD World Championship. Ironsights will be streamed live on Twitch on April 7. It'll then be uploaded to the Twitch Studios archive.
Twitch Studios also recently rolled out a weekly show called Fanboys, which brings on weekly guests to discuss movies, television, and comics. Twitch Presents, Twitch's home for TV marathons, also just held a 17-day Power Rangers marathon.
With these additions, Twitch continues to embrace its community both inside and outside of its original gaming content.
