Step Up Your Game: Breaking Into the Games Industry

Breaking into games is a journey full of challenges and pitfalls. Join us for a panel featuring IGN editor Alanah Pearce, animator Mike Laygo, voice actor Jacob Burgess, and audio artist Marc Straight as they discuss their different journeys in games. This panel will cover getting our first clients, establishing ourselves, and Q&A to cover any questions. Together, we hope this panel will help you break into games and avoid some of the mistakes and dead ends our panelists have worked through along the way.
