Interaction: When Film Meets Games

Saturday 02 September
3.30pm – 4.20pm

What lessons about interactivity are film producers learning from the game development industry as our tools and creations dovetail? This talk is about how game studios help film producers delve into the production of interactive content from a design and production perspective.

We will tackle the role of game and interactivity designers in the creation of interactive content and how they bridge the gap between ideas, creative direction, programming, and other disciplines. We will also discuss game production pipelines, iterative processes, and the emergent creative products that come from making something that is meant to be played with.
