Sara Erlandson is the star of Twitch docco Ironsights
Arcade eSports is featured in the first of its kind mini documentary from Twitch Studios, based on the hit video game Big Buck Hunter.
The annual Big Buck World Championship has been streaming live on Twitch since 2013.
Twitch shined the spotlight on the players after noticing the unique community and increasing viewership of the championship.
“There’s no community like the Big Buck community,” George Petro, president of Raw Thrills Studio and Play Mechanix, said.
“Twitch has discovered what our players have known for years.
“Big Buck Hunter is social networking in its purest form.”
Ironsights, as the documentary is called, is a 22-minute story.
It follows Wisconsin native Sara Erlandson as she travels from her hometown of Beldenville to the Big Buck World Championship in Austin, TX.
Ironsights premiered on April 7, streamed live to Twitch TVs over 100 million monthly users.
The road to the World Championship begins at any networked Big Buck HD machine.
Qualifying play begins May 1 and ends October 1. Anyone aged 18 or older can take their shot at eSports greatness.
Ironsights marks Twitch’s first foray into original narrative and documentary content with the intent to inspire and celebrate the Twitch community.
