The Number One Educational Resource for the Game Industry

Session Name:

Big Screen to Game Console: Case Studies

Overview:

Games based on feature films present a number of challenges: translating a linear storyline into an interactive game, matching an established production design, meeting potentially sychronized release schedules, passing the numerous hurdles of studio approvals, and maintaining consistent creative direction from film to game. Each of these challenges has a corresponding benefit, including an established world, characters, and look to start from; marketing tie-ins; and the potential for a pre-etablished audience for the game.

This course deconstructs the production of games based on popular feature films. With representatives from both the film and game production sides, the discussion explores the challenges and benefits of managing creative direction, sharing production assets, and scheduling delivery of film-based game properties. The discussion also touches on the impact of next-gen platforms on the sharing of film and game assets.
