|Overview:||The game audio community seems to (almost) universally share the compulsion to advise and help newcomers because someone has usually done the same for them. Where this becomes interesting is in the different stories that game audio professionals all have. Every single one is different. This session will give the audience 10 unique stories on game audio mentorship and community. In the classic GDC microtalk model, each speaker has 5 minutes and 20 seconds to go through their 20 slides (each timed at 16 seconds apiece). The ideas will flick by like paint from a spin art turntable, but aim to splatter the audience with colorful, inspired tales on the spirit of volunteerism and mentorship.|
