For some, the competitive Smash scene is irrelevant, a joke, or a waste of time. But for the dedicated players waking up early to travel to tournaments, paying tolls to cross state lines, practicing until the wee hours of the morning with nothing but an LCD and a Gamecube, competitive Smash Bros. is a way of life.
Travis Beauchamp of East Point Pictures decided to jump into the competitive scene and create a documentary to show the true side of competitive Smash – the ups and downs and all the people involved. From focusing on the love of the game to the exciting circumstances of a major tournament to the top level players like Mew2King, Mango, Ken and PC Chris, The Smash Brothers provides a seemingly unmatched look into a community that has scratched and clawed from the depths of basements to world stages like Apex and EVO.
Episode 1 of the documentary, entitled, \”Show Me Your Moves,\” opens with quite an interesting sequence with Melee legend Korean DJ.
All episodes of the documentary are now available on East Point Pictures\’ Youtube channel. Fans and players within the community should easily recognize a number of community members providing insightful commentary within the videos, like caster Prog of Melee It On Me, as well as appearances by a number of high level players. A \”remastered version\” of the documentary is expected to be available October 26th.
VG BootCamp, who streamed the entirety of the documentary last night, is now continuing the Melee hype with the stream of The Big House 3. Big names like Hungrybox, Dr. PeePee, Mew2King, Hax and more are making appearances.
