We’re working on fine tuning our video of Mayhem and King Mo’s visit to EA Tiburon studio to see the making of the EA MMA game. Until then, whet your appetites with photos I took while gawking at the birthplace of the Madden franchise and pretty much all the EA Sports titles. It was loads of fun and fascinating to meet all the people involved in making top titles in gaming. Thanks to EA for letting us bring our cameras into their studios and of course, Mayhem, Mo, and Ryan, for bringing us along.
While Casey and I were in Orlando, I admired one of the fiercest, shortest thunderstorms I’ve ever seen (I’m from Los Angeles, so I don’t get to see much of any kind of weather — closest was a hurricane that downgraded as it hit land while I lived in New York City). We went out in downtown Orlando, watching Inglorious Basterds, drinking boba, and were treated to Mayhem at the mic, singing Tom Jones at Central Station Bar’s karaoke night.
All in all it was a productive trip that began with me in New York City shooting Fedor, then meeting up with Casey in Kansas City to shoot M-1 Breakthrough, and ending in the warm welcome of EA in Orlando. We’ll debut the video in a few days.
