Session Name: Audio Bootcamp XVI: Great Audio Design: By Any Means Necessary
Speaker(s): Matthew Lee Johnston
Company Name(s): Microsoft
Track / Format: Audio
Overview: This is a talk about using activist tactics to combat bias against the most traditionally undervalued and underrepresented creative discipline in human history. The things Matthew has had to do to simply get parity treatment and production resources compared to his visually -oriented peers are unreasonable by any standard. In this presentation, he will prove this through storytelling using real examples from his career, and demonstrate that by being passionate about great audio design, and by caring deeply about the people you work with, you can make any experience more joyful, usable, and accessible with audio. You just need to change everyone around you first. Here's how.
