For those going to the London Games Festival these workshops may be of interest.

London Games Festival on 25th October.

In the morning Ernest Adams (ex Electronic Arts and co-founder of IGDA) is running an exclusive workshop on Designing Compelling Emotive Games for the special festival price of £99 + vat per delegate (much less than the usual delegate fee of around £200). – Places are limited – you will be joining a small group of your design colleagues at this workshop.

In the afternoon, a very special festival seminar is running on Machinima, keynoted by leading director Ricard Gras of LA Interactiva, with a panel of industry luminaries giving you advice on how to become a successful director – opening the doors to making your name in film-making. A tutorial on MovieStorm and discussion on what the consequences are for you as games engine providers start to limit use for machinima close the seminar – (with a planned and yet to be announced screening of leading machinima films following in the evening).
