One of the upsides of working on an internet website (as opposed to TV, radio or a magazine) is that there are endless opportunities to try new things. Some work, some don't, but either way we get to have fun and it's generally not too expensive when you f**k up. The worst that happens is some anonymous troll says mean things about you in the comments section. I've been at G4 for a decade, thick skin goes along with the territory.
With that in mind, we're going to bring you something new tomorrow: the first installment of G4 Films. Over the next few months (and potentially beyond) we're going to find, develop, produce and license full and short films that are related to the passion we all share… video games.
Tomorrow's film, FOCUS, is a full-length documentary highlighting a year-in-the-life of pro gamer and all around nice guy Mike Ross as he prepares for and competes in EVO 2010. Whether you're into the scene or haven't dropped a quarter in a Street Fighter II machine in years we sincerely hope you enjoy it.
We'll have a couple more films over the course of the summer, culminating in something extra-special in October as part of our now-annual EPICTOBER event (a month's worth of kick-ass exclusives and stunts on G4tv.com, AOTS and X-Play). A trailer for FOCUS is below, check back tomorrow morning to watch the whole thing. And don't forget that G4tv.com's coverage of EVO 2011 starts Friday with livestream coverage from the biggest matches, interviews, special episodes of Fighting Words and more. And the fine folks of X-Play will be shooting a special episode at EVO 2011 set to air in a few weeks.
