Pitching a Customized Demo Reel

  • 10:00AM – 12:00PM
  • With Composer Stephanie Copeland & Director Chad Archibald

This interactive workshop will give composers the opportunity to create a customized demo reel from a provided brief to receive feedback from other composers and to be discussed with Stephanie and Chad during the workshop.

Music & Sound for Games: Part of the Gaggle

  • 1:00PM – 2:45PM
  • With Composer Jake Butineau & Sound Designer Alex Metcalfe

This workshop will focus on the collaborative nature of composing music and creating sound FX for games from the perspective of a composer & sound designer who are team collaborators that go beyond simply supplying audio assets. Working in the music for film & TV world can be very different from game audio not because of the music that is composed but because the way music & sound in games is part of a very different collaborative team process.

Game Audio Implementation: From DAW to Game Engine 

  • 3:00PM – 5:00PM
  • With Mike Romaniak

This workshop will aim to answer these questions: What is the process of taking music in a DAW to having it play in a game? How does middleware play a role in this process? Is it important for composers who are interested in composing for games to know middleware, audio implementation, and even programming?
