If there's one thing our Melbourne crew is collectively addicted to, it's Mario Kart. It all started back in 2017 when Brendan Seals (VFX Supervisor) thought he would challenge the studio to a Mario Kart Tournament with unabashed confidence that he'd win. It led to the biggest upset we’ve seen go down—with Michael Yates, or Yatesy, taking the win. It also created our most competitive tradition at our studio—every year when the Tourney rolls around, tensions rise, trash-talking ensues, and our crew mentally and physically prepare for the showdown.
Through the years, we’ve given out some big prizes, roped our LA crew in for cross-studio challenges, and witnessed one too many Rainbow Road defeats.
