Lecture at the Animex animation festival

Middlesbrough, England

A quick overnight trip back to Middlesbrough to deliver my lecture, "Will Computer Games Ever Be a Legitimate Art Form," to the crowd at Animex. This was the first time the festival had included a "Game Day" in the proceedings, and there were some serious developers there. I was pleased to get a chance to chat with Andrew Oliver of Blitz Games, one of the oldest privately-owned developers still around in the UK. Andrew gave an excellent practical lecture on developing characters for video games.
