Esports Producer

Esports Producers bring competitive gaming events to the fans.

Gaming tournaments attract thousands of spectators, both to physical events and online streaming services. These events need a range of content to be captured and broadcast, from on-stage hosting and in-game commentary, through post-match interviews, highlights videos and sponsored messages. 

As an Esports Producer you plan what’s needed, put together a team of creatives, and manage how it all comes together. Your role could include getting behind the microphone or in front of the camera too.
