Speakers Today we release our newest speaker footage from G2Expo'06.  It features Heather Chandler; she is a multimedia producer with ten years of experience.

Her company, Media Sunshine, Inc. was founded in 2005. Chandler is also the author of such titles as The Game Localization Handbook and The Game Production Handbook.

This video goes into the detailed process of what a game producer does and the steps that have to be taken in order to make the game successful. Each process of pre-production, production, testing, and after production is thoroughly broken down.

At the end of this speech is a question and answer session. Perhaps even one of your own questions appears!

SpeakersTimothy Buie's footage from G2Expo'06 was recently released and is available in our event footage section.  This is just a small taste of his entire presentation.

Timothy Buie is an assistant professor in the College of Design at North Carolina State University. He’s been working in the Industrial Design Department for ten years and occasionally teaches an art and design class.

Introducing us to the world of games through scholastics; he teaches classes such as digital imaging and ID400 Real and Modeling & Animation and is proposing more classes such as ID292 which would cover game design, the phenomenon of games, and the inner makings of a game.

Buie states that he has been seeing a lack of creativity in video games. His students have the creativity it just needs to be harvested. Working together the students create games and in his opinion certainly know how to make things and make them appealing to the masses!

The students learn to how to draw and draw a lot. Everything starts with and idea and then moves into the pitch. A ton of hard work is involved to design, create, and produce a demo. The end of the clip gives a vibrant example of the outcome once everything is followed through.

To get a more in depth feel, check out of the video!
