I just found out about another event happening the same night I had our meet up scheduled. It's not an Unreal event but I feel it's one most of you will find highly invaluable and would not want to miss.
Make sure you RSVP at the link below:
BREAKING INTO THE GAMES INDUSTRY
Thursday, February 27th, 2020, 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Portfolio and Career Advice with Blizzard Entertainment, Insomniac Games, Naughty Dog, and Santa Monica Studio
On Thursday, February 27th, discover just what video game studios are looking for in an applicant when recruiters and artists from some of your favorite game companies join us for a night of career advice.
In this artist-centric event, speakers from Insomniac Games, Naughty Dog, Santa Monica Studio, and Blizzard Entertainment will take the stage to discuss their application processes and best practices to follow when applying.
Learn how to craft your resume, portfolio, and demo reel to best suit your needs, as well as how to specialize your collateral for a variety of disciplines, such as character modeling, environment art, animation, VFX, tech art, and more. Speakers will also be dropping tips and tricks on how to make a good impression during the application process and offer insight on how to get your foot in the door. If you’ve ever wanted to work in games, this event will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the technical and soft skills that can help get you that job.
This event will not be live streamed. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP and arrive in good time to secure a place in line. Attendee check-in will open at approximately 6:30 PM and a valid Eventbrite RSVP will be required to get an event wristband. Admission is first-come first-served and a wristband does not guarantee entry in cases that the stage reaches capacity.
Attendees are welcome to join a guided tour of Gnomon before the event. If you'd like to schedule a tour, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
