Session Name Killer Portfolio or Portfolio Killer: Part 1 - Advice from Industry Artists
Speaker(s) Greg Foertsch, Alison Kelly, Wyeth Johnson, Shawn Robertson, Nicholas (Sparth) Bouvier, Steve Scott
Company Name(s) Firaxis Games, Alison Kelly Consulting, Epic Games, Irrational Games, 343 Industries, Bungie
Track / Format Game Career Seminar
Overview As the game industry has become increasingly competitive, it has also become more difficult for artists to break into the industry and obtain recognition for their work. There are, however, both positive and negative ways to stand out from the crowd. This panel, which consists of art directors and lead artists from Epic, Firaxis, 343, Irrational, and Bungie, will expose portfolio pitfalls and how to avoid them, as well as providing real world examples of how to succeed in getting, and holding, an art director's attention. The panel will also discuss common hiring practices and variations among the studios. The panel will be followed by a 3 hour session for individual portfolio reviews.
