Esteban Martinez, creator and videographer for Hold Back To Block; a FGC affiliated content-driven website and establishment, is looking for your help in creating their premier feature documentary titled - FGC: Rise of the Fighting Game Community. This is a kickstarter backed endeavor, so to learn more about HBTB as well as the documentary and what it is all about, hit the jump to read on!
FGC: Rise of the Fighting Game Community is "A feature documentary that takes an in-depth look at the culture of competitive fighting games known as the "FGC"...". As such, Hold Back To Block is looking for the support of the FGC in order to make this massive undertaking a success as well as an experience that we can all enjoy as Fighting Game fans.
Esteban and HBTB have recently made a name for themselves within the FGC with their "Climbing the Ladder" series, as well as their ongoing high-quality interview series with some of the FGC's most notable players, personalities, commentators, and tournament organizers; including two interviews with Dustloop's own Lord Knight.
As of this writing, the kickstarter is up and running with 33 backers so far that have a combined pledge of $1,962 on the way to a stated goal of $9,000. With 27 days left to go for the kickstarter, there is still plenty of time to get involved in this project and contribute actively in a positive light towards the FGC.
With NEC XIV looming over the horizon in the coming weeks, those of you lucky enough to attend can get the chance to actively inquire as to what this project is all about in person, as well as what you can do to help.
