There haven’t been too many cross-over events between the local film and television industry and the local games community. So this is a rare opportunity to meet new people and learn something about interesting work being undertaken right here in Perth.

The panel discussion will be preceded by a brief presentation on games and the games industry, so no former knowledge of games is required. Speaking of the panel discussions, we’ve got a wide range of panelists:

There will also be a number of other key game developers (and a publisher) present, who we will introduce at the end of the panel discussion.

With X|Media|Lab Perth fast approaching, this event presents opportunities for traditional screen practitioners to:

  1. Learn what is involved in creating games for their cross-media projects
  2. Ask seasoned game developers questions about their project ideas
  3. Recruit local game developers to their X|Media|Lab teams

And vice-versa for game developers. On top of that, ScreenWest have secured a fantastic venue and will be providing drinks and nibbles for a networking session after the panel discussion. It’s a total win-win situation. 😀

See you there!
