Game Narrative Summit: Casting Light on the Black Box


Actors spend a lifetime perfecting their craft - but they only spend a small fraction of that time with your game. Much of the success of a performance across mechanics, story, multiple languages and beyond depends not only on expert direction; but, also, key details about the game's creative vision. Actor/director Phillipe Bosher and veteran designer Jolie Menzel have worked with dozens of performers on indie to AAA games and will share how they crack open the 'black box' so that talented actors deliver brilliant performances. In addition, they will share how teams can capture and deliver these details in a development pipeline that serves both the narrative team and the actors who perform the dialogue.
