Esports and content creation are becoming two of the biggest passion points of today’s youth, some even venturing to build a career out of it.
This is why Globe Prepaid endeavored to hit the sweet spot with the GoESPORTS Game On Training Camp, a Virtual Hangouts event enabling budding esports content creators to harness their talents and make a mark in the gaming scene.
The training camp featured master classes on shoutcasting, scriptwriting, and spontaneous speaking, among others. This gave 18 participants the rare opportunity to learn from some of the esport industry’s best talents.
The training camp, hosted on the Globe Prepaid Virtual Hangouts passion portal, featured mentors Archer Perez and BossLucio from Tier One. The pair, along with other industry giants, led sessions on the fundamentals of shoutcasting, streaming, video editing, content planning, and even on dealing with online bashers.
“Learning from the pros provides rich knowledge that is based on years of experience doing the craft, so we teamed up with the best in the industry who can teach and inspire our participants by sharing their own journeys both in esports and content creation,” said Givielle Florida, head of Globe Prepaid.
Participants, all between the ages of 16 and 25, also enjoyed gaming action as popular gamers Yskaela and OhMyV33nus went head-to-head on Mobile Legends Bang Bang while Boss Lucio and Archer Perez casted their stream.
As a bonus to all their newfound learnings and their official Tier One certification, top Game On students became part of the AMPLFY Academy, a developmental program created for aspiring AMPLFY talents. The students who made it to the finals are Lemuel Ian Manuel, Dan Levi Cuevas, Angel Aboy Maloloy-on,Pia Izella Magtibay, Lark Arielle Lo, James Bennette Strachan, and Eliana Saceda.
They were also awarded with top-tier streaming/casting gears worth P40,000, including the latest Logitech Gaming Wireless Headset, HyperX Quadcast Microphone, and Glorious Model O mouse. They will also showcase what they learned from the training camp as they take part in Tier One and Globe Esports events.
Capping the GoESPORTS Game On Training Camp was “The Final Round,” a hybrid event held at XYLO at The Palace and streamed via GGWP Facebook page, Globe’s Twitch account, and Globe Prepaid Virtual Hangouts passion portal.
James Bennette Stratchan was awarded as the Content Creator winner, while Eliana Saceda was crowned as the Shoutcasting champion.
The two went home with a mentorship and certification courtesy of Tier One Entertainment plus a new set of streaming gear, to kick off their top tier talent journey.
