Our local boys, Hank and Jed Movie Pictures, were hired by EA Games to produce a video that airs this Sunday on Machinima’s Happy Hour Channel as the gaming world gears up for the release of Battlefield 4. So how did that coolness happen? Their show Battlefield Friends (BFFs) has completed three seasons, working with the Machinima Network, one of You Tube‘s largest distributors and most subscribed channels. The Battlefield gaming community quickly caught on and fell in love with the show even catching the eye of game creator DICE as well as its parent company EA Games. Within the past two years Hank and Jed has developed a relationship with the company and due to the BFF’s millions of views, working together within the social media realm was a win-win for all. Hank and Jed are also the creators of the medieval comedy Doraleous and Associates, and Minecraft related Mob Squad. Current projects include the next season of Doraleous as well as Season 4 of Battlefield Friends, Battleloggers, Game Idiot and more. FYI: Hank and Jed will be special guests at Game Stop in Monkey Junction in Wilmington, NC Monday night for the release of BF4. I believe they will be showing their series during the release party. You will also have a chance to win an autographed BF4 T-shirt from the folks at DICE. LIKE the BFFs on Facebook now to stay in the loop!
