Social Media and stream platform Twitch revealed the trailer for their upcoming Big Buck Hunter documentary called Ironsights. This mini-documentary will be the first original documentary produced by Twitch Studios, the in house production company responsible for the Twitch Weekly and convention content.
Twitch intends to experiment with creating original narrative and documentary content with Ironsights, so if it does well, we’ll expect to see more original content created by Twitch, which combined with our earlier announcement, means we’ll be getting some tv-style programming from Twitch in the near future. I can’t quite see this not doing well as Twitch is certainly a driving force in content creation right now and Sara Erlandson, the star of Ironsights, has quite a sizable following.
“There are a lot of amazing stories to tell about the Twitch community which rarely get the attention they deserve,” said Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham, director of Twitch Studios. “With Twitch Studios, we are looking to shine a light on these stories and celebrate our community. A great example of this is Ironsights, which is how Sara Erlandson, one of our community members, made a name for herself in the highly competitive Big Buck HD scene.”
The 22-minute doc follows Sara Erlandson, Wisconsin bar owner turned Big Buck phenomenon and Twitch streamer, as she travels to the World Championship in Austin, Texas. Ironsights premieres on April 7 at 2pm PST right after that day’s conclusion of Twitch Weekly. It will be live streamed and uploaded on the Twitch Studios’ channel. Ironsights will be saved as VOD on Twitch for those who miss the stream to watch at their leisure.
