Start Your Story: Event Review
Hello, and welcome to my section of Event reviews! I will be going to events that have to do a career in Game Development. After approaching Bradford University at Create your Future, I got invited to an event, which I enjoyed.
I have to say though, the panel was bad, but I do think that is down to the available time they had. The event hosted by Hannah Morrish from the Student Room, started with a video saying we should choose to go to Bradford University. It was a nice video. The panel involved Enzo Cilenti, Lisa Lambert, Carlton Reeve, Benson Taylor and Iki Ikram. The panel only had a few questions asked by both Hannah and the Audience, and even with the time constrates(one of the ghests got in Late), it felt very rushed.
The networking part is where the event really shines. I spoke to Carlton and Iki, and the advice that they gave was good. I even managed to show Iki some of work and he gave me some critiques. This was my favourte part of the event because I finally got the advice I needed, such as working on timing.
Overall, I would recommend this event to anyone who wants to be in the creative indesturies. They do give a lot of general advice, so if you want specific advice, this is not the event for you. However, if you need to bulid networks, see if you can get in for next year.
Also, if you went to Create your Future, the pack given is the same.
Sorry for the short review, in the middle of a Game Jam + School asessments, so I have to give somewhere.
Thanks for reading, have a fantasic day/night and take care.
