SpyGames Studios CEO and founder Alex Orellana often says he has two speeds, “fast and faster.” That mantra was on display this past week as the SpyGame team took on the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and covered the Echoes of Hope Foundation celebration.

Echoes of Hope was founded in 2005 by NHL Hall of Famer, and current LA Kings executive Luc Robitaille, and his wife Stacia.  The foundation’s primary mission is to help emancipated minors succeed in academics and in life. The foundation each year attracts top NHL Hockey Legends and Hollywood celebrities to take part in various fundraising activities during Sundance.

SpyGame Studios was proud to be part of the Echoes of Hope events and the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It was a crazy non-stop weekend that moved at a very fast pace, but for the SpyGame Studios team it wasn’t difficult to keep up because there are only two speeds at SpyGame Studios….fast and faster.
