Art Direction Summit: Collaborative Art Direction


Art Directors Gavin Goulden and Jason Hickey of Insomniac Games will talk about their collaborative process working on MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES. The session will include insights into the early development of MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES and how it quickly became clear that they needed to divide the work and what they did to tackle this. Gavin will talk about the Character Art, Cinematic and VFX Art Direction and pipelines and Jason will share his experience Art Directing the colour script, the environment art concept pipeline and cultural representation. Both Art Directors will discuss the challenges and successes along the way as they grew into their roles and finish with the initiatives into defining next gen for MARVEL'S SPIDER-MAN: MILES MORALES on PS5 and how collaboration is not just a pillar for the art directors but it's throughout Insomniac with examples of how great ideas come from anywhere at the studio.
