Screen industry: get in on the game development action!
Did you know that the revenue of the international gaming sector is larger than that of the movie and music sectors combined?
We’re hearing a lot about the prevalence and success of games – games that are extensions of films and make more $$ than the original film, games festivals where hundreds of people watch gamers compete, games your children use for school…
So, where do you as screen workers fit into this microcosm?
This workshop is part one of a series of two. In this first workshop we will get an overview of New Zealand’s gaming industry, what roles are available, where story fits into the equation and many other useful facts. Part two will cover maximising opportunities to develop games as part of your brand extension.
We bring you a fabulous panel of experts:
Moderator: Aliesha Staples, Managing Director, Staples VR
Joe Chang, Director, Eyemobi
Maru Nihoniho (MNZM), Founder and Managing Director, Metia Interactive
Lena Yaroshenko, rigger and 3D artist for Grinding Gear Games
Edwin McRae, Narrative Designer for Video Games
Krystal Paraone, Studio Manager, Game Developer
