The SXSW gaming awards have been an amazing opportunity for us to explore and try new things over the last 3 years. This year we started with gaming hardware, added a big slice of NASA space photography, a dash of retro sci-fi book covers, and pinch of Kubrick's 2001. We combined them together into an opening that transports the audience into the world of the SXSW Gaming Awards
