Feature Breakdown


The Project: We came aboard for the January 2015 event to deliver a complete overhaul of the event's livestream to bring it to a level of professionalism befitting its prominence. Besides obvious graphical upgrades, crucial information about the event remained invisible on the stream, including the total money raised, upcoming races, and prizes that could be won by donors. This design goal came with the caveat that any added complexity had to be controlled easily enough by the multiple shifts of tech volunteers assisting with the production.

How we did it: Starting from scratch, we used NodeCG to produce multiple layouts with consistent components, accomodating every variation necessary for races of 1-4 players of standard or widescreen ratio games, without sacrificing the delivery of information to the viewer. For the Summer 2015 event, we delivered a sports-ticker style lower third that communicated even more information about donor incentives, individually controlled timers for all runners, and a control scheme for sponsor advertisements.

Wildstar Livestream

Interactive and informative community engagement
More Info


The Project: While working as the Cinematics Designer at Carbine Studios, Chris helped spearhead developing and producing the official livestream for the MMORPG WildStar, leading or assisting efforts with its content direction, overall look, and day-to-day production. The result was a stream that served to set the bar for production value when it came to developer outreach and education.

How it was done: With the support of Carbine's development, community, and marketing departments, the relatively small livestream team was able to produce a wide variety of content on a regular basis, helping to support multiple promotional initiatives with content that went beyond talking head interviews and direct gameplay demos. WildStar's Twitch channel showcased marathon events, visually engaging deep-dives, meaningful Q & A sessions, and direct involvement with the WildStar community.
