Elite Edge Videos

In January 2014 I tried to make up for the low-budget videos I did in 2011. I hired Elite Edge Productions to help with the audio, video, and editing. These are much better than my old ones. Any fault in them I place on myself.

These videos were made by my assistant Heather Ferris. They were all shot at the 2014 and 2015 Raving Table Games show.
