EVO 2010 from richhhard on Vimeo.'s Richard Li just sent me this great video showcasing the ballroom of Caesars Palace and many of the people involved with EVO. If you didn't make it out to Vegas this year, watching this will ensure you don't miss next years EVO.

Notable Highlights:

  • Ya boy Haunts, of course!
  • Daigo signing a boob. What a pimp! When in doubt, pinky out, btw.
  • Skisonic "in Wilson out" at the end!

 Here's Richards notes:

Las Vegas, Nevada 2010 -- EVO 2010 took place at Cesar's Palace, a fancy pants casino and hotel in Las Nevada, where thousands of fighting game fans attended the annual tournament hosted For three days, players competed across several games including Super Street Fighter 4, all trying to get out of their pools. I, while waiting for my turn, shot some b-roll around the ballroom, aided by friend Ray, who also filmed with my other camera. What you see here is a collection of footage gathered in two days: the start of the tourney and the end of the tourney. Highlights include Daigo signing his autograph on a lady's chest at the Madcatz booth, sitting and filming amongst the crowd, and capturing the intense, exciting moments near the stage during the Super Street Fighter 4 grand finals. 

Shot with Canon 5D Mark ii and T2i. Music provided by the legendary Neil Young "Heart of Gold" from Harvest Moon. Graded in Magic Bullets using a custom grade based on the Blockbuster effect.

Special thanks to Ray, Mark, Toshi, Terry, Jayson, Mike, Anthony, Ramin, Nima, Neidel.

So if I go to EVO I can see douchebags wearing shades indoors? No thanks :(

^ Shades are a stylistic choice, and it is ridiculously bright in the ballroom anyway. Some people wear hooded sweat shirts indoors as well, crazy I know.

Don't worry haunts, I think wearing shades indoors is quite sexy and manly.

Mr Neil Young. Good stuff Mr Li. I just love seeing the intense look on peoples faces and then that build up to the crowd going wild. For anyone who says This stuff has nothing to give, look at this and say that. Say that to all those people who really care. I can not wait to go to my first evo next year.
