Making The Transition To Game Development

Mar 14, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Join us as we discuss how the past few years of social and economic changes have triggered an exodus of employees in most industries, known as the great resignation, but there has been an uptick in people joining game development. We will talk about how the technology behind game development has finally caught up with photo-real visual effects seen in feature films, episodics and animation. Many people are finding themselves wanting to work in a new industry that excites them. Being able to slightly adjust their skill sets and dive into the world of video games and interactive content. In this discussion we will also cover how the pandemic has motivated people in a variety of industries, to search out ways to educate and expand what they can do with the future of game development.
