Game Starter Game Audio
Hamburg is not only a hotspot for the development of computer games, but also for numerous vocational schools and universities that offer courses specifically for future professionals in the games industry. For students and career starters, the exchange with experts in the games industry is essential in order to know the requirements in the individual disciplines and to prepare for them. To intensify this exchange, Gamecity Hamburg offers the event format Game Starter.
For the fifth installment of Game Starter we will focus on game audio. Industry experts will report on their careers, their jobs and answer the participant’s questions. They will talk about the everyday challenges in game audio, the value put into this field by the very different companies, ways into the job, their experiences in the games industry and things they would have liked to know at the beginning of their careers.
Our three industry experts are:
Mathilde Hoffmann - Freelance Composer and Sounddesigner in Hamburg
Ivo Sissolak - Sounddesigner at IO Interactive, Denmark (Hitman Series)
Benjamin Gallagher - CEO, Sounddesigner and Composer at Double Shot Audio in Hamburg
The event will be streamed live on the Gamecity Hamburg website and is free of charge. Participants can ask their questions via chat at any time. You only need a device that can play the video chat and a stable internet connection. No webcam or microphone is required.
