I Am Street Fighter: 25 Years of Inspiration
NOW AVAILABLE ON YOUTUBE AND IN FULL. WATCH BELOW. (1 Million Views and Counting)
For one of the longest-running game franchises in history, Street Fighter creators Capcom needed something exceedingly special to accompany the release of their 25th anniversary edition of the game. AREA 5 produced, shot, edited, and finished a documentary that spans three countries, more than two decades, and tells the story of how a game not only birthed an entire genre, but changed the lives of a generation. More information in the blog post.
With only four months from conception to completion, AREA 5 finished the documentary in time for its inclusion in the 25th Anniversary boxed set.
AREA 5 is no stranger to foreign shoots and leveraging local talent. Thanks to expert partner 8-4, Ltd., we think no one will notice that we don't speak Japanese.
We pulled together a shooting schedule that featured a powerful selection of subjects and locations in a matter of weeks.
