I know I'm not well known in these parts, but allow me to introduce myself. My name is Anthony "gecks" Miserendino, and I have been casting E-Sports for around 5 years now. I was one of those fortunate enough to get an abnormally deep voice at a young age, and love using it. My reason for posting here is because I would like to become a caster for TeamFortressTV. Here are some of the higher profile events I have casted (links to videos at the bottom):
- Former caster for CEVO CS:GO (2013)
- WCG USA 2012 LAN Finals for Crossfire (attended LAN and casted along side of Corey Dunn)
- WCG USA 2013 LAN Finals for Crossfire (attended LAN and casted along side of Alex "Goldenboy" Mendez)
- Casted for Team USA DoD:S (in 2011?) during their run in Nations Cup
- Various other events, WCG USA Online Qualifiers, CFS NA Qualifiers for CrossFire, etc.
Note: My time at CEVO ended only because I was casting CS:GO, a game which I really didn't have a passion for.
I have come here to try and get into the TF2 casting scene, as I'm not sure where else to go. This upcoming UGC season I will be playing silver 6s as medic, being my main class (Though I'm more of a gold level med). Now I'm fully aware that I'm not quite as experienced as far as the level I've played at as some of the casters in the community, but hear me out.
I've been somewhat bothered at times watching casts within this community. I feel as though some of the casters just aren't as enthusiastic about the game as they could be. I am certainly more of a play by play caster, being able to follow the action quickly and bring the exciting moments to you, providing a cast and experience that you'll remember. I've seen some amazing moments happen on casts, only to have those moments somewhat soiled by unexcited casters. I think most good casts will contain a good play by play caster that brings the exciting moments, coupled by a color caster to do the analysis.
I have a passion for the game of TF2, and a passion for casting. So much so that I want to turn my casting into a career in sports broadcasting, which is how I'm spending my time at college (yes I'm well aware of the difficulty of getting into this field). I'd love to become a caster for Team Fortress TV, and bring my excitement and enthusiasm to every single cast, and create a memorable experience for the viewers. Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.
