Round tables to discuss trending topics with top industry professionals
⚡Present and future of the video game industry
And you, what part of the video game do you want to work on?
This Voxel Trends start from 19:30 in the afternoon with a conference called “And you, what part of the video game do you want to work on?” in which different professionals from the sector will share their knowledge with all of you so that you can discover the different job profiles in video games (from the most technical to the most creative) as well as their experiences working for a long time in the industry.
This conference will be in charge of Jose RaluySenior Video Game Producer and teacher; Manuel Mejas3D Creature Artist at Star Vault AB; Arthur PaivaDirector of Animation at Tequila Works and Laura ElizabethPR & Social Media Expert at Make Good Art Agency.
After this conference at Voxel Trends several round tables will be held in parallel, each of them designed to different profiles of people interested in working in the worlds of animation or video games, counting on top-level Spanish professionals in all of them.
For example one of them is “Ingame Animation vs Cinematics” in which they will talk about the differences of the animators when working for an interactive animation of a game or for one dedicated to a cinematic (of the game itself, of a series…)
Within the round tables dedicated more specifically to video games we find “Present and future of the video game industry” in which we will talk about the evolution of the sector at the level of model, business and billing; in “Great opportunities in the AAA video game industry” We talk about the current opportunities to work in large studios that increasingly require specialized professionals to work on big-budget projects. On the opposite side we find “Can you survive in the video game industry being indie?“, a round table in which they will talk about how you can start in the industry with a small project to grow year after year with marketing or crowdfunding strategies.
Lastly, from 21:00 there will be an afterwork in which attendees will be able to meet professionals, share their doubts and ask questions of all of them.
