Get In The Game 2020: Week Five
Three excellent webinars this week with our Get In The Game careers events, spanning games art, programming, animation and VFX!
This week Andy & Rebecca from the Grads In Games team covered just what it takes for students to get their career started in the games industry, and were joined by guest speakers Louise Andrew, Art Manager at d3t; Luke Maskell, Principal Technical Artist and Tom Morledge, Lead Rigger at Frontier Developments; and Bradley Redfern, Programmer at Deep Silver Dambuster Studios.
Louise, Luke, Tom and Bradley each gave expert insight across games art and programming for our students, with a deep range of insight both on studio processes and how students can best prepare to start their career in the games industry.
Our speakers were also able to share their own experiential advice into working in games, as well as key insights into their own career journeys.
