Our Living Arts Students and Graduates attended the East Coast Game Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina April 20th and 21st! It was a record turnout for the conference with companies such as the power house Epic Games to small indie studios gracing the floor. VR (Virtual Reality) was the big draw this year and the students got to experience VR first hand. Lead Game Designer and Founder of Junction Point, Warren Spector was ECGC’s keynote who spoke about the ever changing game industry and narrative.

The students and graduates had the opportunity to network with many notable studios. One of the highlights from the conference was the Career Lounge! Each year, students from universities meet industry professionals to have their portfolios critiqued to improve their skills and get ready for their careers. Derrick Nsibuka a graduate of LAC met with Eric Peterson, former CEO and Art Director from Vicious Cycle Software, Inc. to review his character models. The advice given by these professionals are invaluable! Everyone enjoyed themselves and are looking forward to attending next year!
Thank you ECGC for another great year!
