Christchurch screen industry: get in on the game development action!

Christchurch screen industry: get in on the game development action!

Posted Thursday 13 May 2021

Did you know that the revenue of the international gaming sector is larger than that of the movie and music sectors combined?
We're hearing a lot about the prevalence and success of video games – games that are extensions of films and make more $$ than the original film, games festivals where hundreds of people watch gamers compete, games your children use for school...

So where do screen workers fit into this microcosm?

Moderated by Aliesha Staples, managing director Staples VR, this workshop will give an overview of New Zealand’s gaming industry, what roles are available and where story fits into the equation. 

WIFT NZ, CHCH Game Developers Association and Screen CanterburyNZ bring you a fabulous panel of experts:

  • Samantha Cook, COO / Studio Director Artifact5 
  • Chelsea Rapp, Chair NZ Game Developers Association
  • Nadia Thorne, head of studio Black Salt Games
  • Mark Rickerby, independent narrative systems designer

  
FREE for WIFT & CHCH Game Developers Association Members; non-members $15 – drinks and nibbles included.

RSVP essential - office@wiftnz.org.nz
