If you're in the area this Friday (Feb 13), I'm doing a couple things at the Video Games Studies Symposium held at BYU.
First of all, I'm doing a presentation called "The Mad Science of Visual and Gameplay Design" from 12:30-1:30pm in F201 of the Harris Fine Arts Center. I'll be talking about things I've learned over the years as an artist and gameplay designer at Disney and elsewhere, and how to find a fusion between the two disciplines. I'm going to show some cool stuff that nobody has ever seen before and if there's time, I might even go through some design process thoughts.
Then from 7-8:30pm in the same room, I'm going to be the moderator of a discussion between some industry-leading (not exaggerating) professionals---including Jeff Bunker, the art director of Disney Infinity and the Tak and the Power of Juju series; and Adam Ford and Geremy Mustard, creators of Infinity Blade I-III. Don't miss this one.
