Most of the footage in the video was shot on the last day of Evolution 2011, which was the grand finals for several fighting games including Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition. I concentrated mainly on the reaction of the crowd, and the subtle and not so subtle gestures performed by the players and the spectators who were "caught in the moment." I feel most vids about tournaments focus too much on the players themselves, and are framed as boring portrait shots, too close to the face, uninteresting in design. In Moments 2011, the best parts were always the unintended ones built on spontaneity.
