If you're a fan of the Gran Turismo games you've probably heard of GTPlanet - the definitive place to be for all information and discussion regarding one of the world's most successful video game series.
I was lucky enough to get the chance to work with Jordan Greer, the owner of the website, when I was a presenter and commentator on their very enjoyable GTPlanet League, which pitched some of the finest sim racing teams in the world against each other, in a savage "round robin and knockout" tournament.
GTPlanet was created by Jordan back in 2001 after he fell in love with the GT games through their second instalment in the series, Gran Turismo 2. There's three quarters of a million people going through the website every month, and with it has grown an incredible community and team that cover everything you could possibly imagine when it comes to Gran Turismo.
I'm delighted to say that I've been brought on board as Lead Video Producer at GTPlanet, to support the editorial content you can see on the website, with a matching video in most cases, to help keep a more consistent presence across YouTube. On top of this, there may be gameplay videos and other content as a result of my involvement with the brand, as I get hands on with my first Playstation and Gran Turismo game in years.
Huge thanks go out to Jordan for believing in me, providing such an amazing opportunity to work on something I love and be a part of the amazing brand that he and the team have built. It's been great fun getting everything set up and started, so I can't wait to see how things progress with it all.
My first video (below) went live yesterday and there's plenty more on the way, so make sure to subscribe to the GTPlanet YouTube Channel and get involved in the community discussions on their website.
