Working with Austin it’s easy to see him as a leader. One esports needs. With a vision to create a community we can all be proud of and accepted in. If you have the chance and want to work with a community builder. Work with Jelloicy. When we asked him about what he is doing in the industry he came strong in the echoing my sentiment above:

First and foremost, the partnership between Rainy Day Productions, Oklahoma Christian University, Oklahoma City Public Schools, and the State Fair is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the immense potential and growing popularity of gaming and esports. By joining forces, we aim to create an unforgettable experience for both the gaming community and fair attendees alike. Here's why this partnership is beneficial:

Engaging the Community: Gaming and esports have become a significant part of modern culture, attracting a diverse and passionate audience. The State Fair's collaboration with Rainy Day Productions, Oklahoma Christian, and Oklahoma City Public Schools demonstrates its commitment to staying relevant and appealing to a broad demographic, while offering an engaging experience to attendees of all ages.

Promoting Local Talent, Including Public Schools: Rainy Day Productions takes pride in supporting the local gaming community by organizing multiple tournaments throughout the year. By partnering with the State Fair, we can provide a platform for aspiring gamers to showcase their skills and connect with a larger audience. This collaboration not only bolsters the competitive gaming scene but also encourages talent development within our city. We are particularly dedicated to promoting local talent, including individuals from our city's public schools. By actively involving public school students in the event, we aim to provide opportunities for them to demonstrate their gaming abilities and gain recognition within the broader gaming community. This inclusive approach not only fosters talent within our local public school system but also enhances the overall diversity and vibrancy of the gaming scene in our city.

In esports building name recognition and a brand is important, but the work behind the scenes adds up to countless hours of passion. Eventually turns into success like Austin has with Rainy Day Productions.
