Escapist News Network
The Escapist Magazine
A weekly parody of video game industry news, Bionic Trousers Media produced this series for The Escapist Magazine from September 2009 to February 2011. ENN consisted of two distinct sections. First, news anchors read videogame news stories, delivering the information with a comedic twist. Following that, each episode would conclude with a longer “feature” story. Unlike the news anchor section, all the content of the feature stories was fictional, with actors playing industry professionals and game developers. In addition we also produced a series of “ENN E3 News Bytes” to cover news relating to the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in 2010, a large industry event. We produced these shorter videos on an extremely tight production schedule, and released them every day for the week of E3, updating in the morning to cover any news from the previous day.
