Our first doc by producer Esteban Martinez focuses on the life and career of fighting-game-community streamer and professional broadcaster Victor "Spooky" Fontañez. As both a lifelong fan of the FGC, a talented solo producer, and a fellow Peurto-Rican American, this was a story that only Esteban could have tackled. Charting Spooky’s rise from organizing tournaments on street corners in NYC to playing his part in the biggest event on the FGC calendar, “STAY FREE” is a terrific example of the multitude of interesting stories that exist across the games industry.
