THE BILLY FAC­TOR

Gam­ing’s most pa­tri­otic neck­tie is back on the screen

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE MAN VS SNAKE -

Man Vs Snake presents King Of Kong star Billy Mitchell as a be­nign ex­pert, al­low­ing us to see him in the role of en­thu­si­ast and sup­port­ive friend. “When we went to in­ter­view him, he had been burned by his ex­pe­ri­ence in the ‘other doc­u­men­tary’,” Kinzy ex­plains. “There were trust is­sues: what were we af­ter, re­ally?”

“We wanted Billy be­cause he was there for the first bil­lion-point game and wit­nessed it,” Sek­lir says. “He’s been a friend of Tim McVey and re­mained his friend through­out the years. We didn’t go af­ter him for his celebrity sta­tus – it was be­cause he had a unique in­sight into the story.”
