STREAM HATCHET TRENDS
This week, Stream Hatchet released their Q1 2021 live streaming report. One of the biggest takeaways was the 80% year-over-year growth in combined hours watched from Twitch, YouTube Gaming, and Facebook Gaming. The jump was massive compared to the Q1 2019-2020 increase of about 36%. Twitch generated the largest portion of the combined 8.8B hours watched with about 6.3B of their own. The Amazon-owned live streaming platform widened the Q1 gap between itself and the other western platforms but YouTube Gaming and Facebook Gaming still saw impressive growth. YouTube Gaming increased by about 24% while Facebook Gaming surged with an 87% increase.

The large jump in live streaming viewership can partially be attributed to the new lifestyle under the COVID-19 pandemic. When other entertainment options like sports and nightlife shut down, many people turned to live streaming and video games. Because of this, the mass media adoption of live streaming was accelerated leading to increased viewership for the platforms. Twitch, being the leader in space, received a bulk of the new traffic resulting in 97% growth year-over-year.

POWER PLAYERS – ESPAT TV’s Dante Simpson
Boasting a flurry of deals in recent months that range from teams to a partnership with Ridley Scott Creative Group to yesterday’s announcement that it would be partnering with Enthusiast Gaming, ESPAT TV has been bolstering its plans amid the pandemic shutdown of live esports. The full-service collaborative production house was c-founded by Dante Simpson, Ed Brooks and Mario Prosperino and has built its reputation by moving “the creative needle” for gaming content. With the new announcement now public, Cynopsis Esports caught up with Simpson to talk about the direction of the company.

Simpson on moving his career into esports: I have been fortunate to work in high fashion, with The Gucci Group, where your look tells a story…I then worked for a major music company, Sony BMG Music Entertainment, where songs/music tell a story. My current role and company is a culmination of a career that embraced entertainment, storytelling and culture. ESPAT TV is all of the above, and so much more.

On pivoting during the pandemic: I believe, in business, the pandemic revealed flaws and it revealed strengths. The gaming coming, which thrived in the digital age, on digital formats was the entertainment best equipped to pivot during these challenging times. ESPN turned to gaming culture, music turned to the gaming industry, even politics decided to join the party. We embraced these new opportunities and we’re proud to be a part of it. With that said, we CANNOT wait for live events to come back. There’s nothing like the energy in an arena and capturing the energy, the joy of victory and the agony of defeat.

On working with teams: Our team partnerships are very specific…teams do an incredible job connecting with their fan base. They use Twitter, Twitch and others to naturally and authentically connect. It is our belief that industry growth will come from remaining true to your core audience, while connecting with new fans on platforms where they are. That’s where ESPAT TV steps in. We are creating premium content that will reside on non-gamer centric streaming platforms, but will create excitement and fandom that will ultimately lead back to their new favorite teams.

On the Enthusiast deal: With Enthusiast, we are embracing all forms of content. Whether its original content on social platforms, original programming on streaming platforms or emerging podcast networks, Enthusiast has a forward-thinking strategy to be a leader and we are happy to bring our expertise and jointly bring this vision to existence.

On the partnership with Ridley Scott Creative Group: Christian Lamb of RSA Films and the Creative Lead for ESPAT TV and Molly Bohas of Black Dog Films, both on behalf of Ridley Scott Creative Group will be an intrical part of the Enthusiast – ESPAT TV relationship. As Ridley Scott Creative Group identified the role gaming/esports will have in the future of produced and immersive content, that excitement led to the groundbreaking partnership between our organizations. To be aligned with directors and producers from such a legendary organization, who’s committed to bringing stories from the gaming community to the streaming screen and ultimately the silver screen, is a moment we will all celebrate.

INDUSTRY
The Electronic Software Association finally laid out its plans for this year’s digital-only E3, running June 12-15 with a lineup that includes Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros.

3BLACKDOT, an entertainment studio with a focus on gaming, signed an exclusive, one-year partnership with gaming talent management company BavaMedia.
