I had the opportunity to attend this great talk at BAFTA HQ in London. In the talk, video game composer Gareth discussed how he used music to reflect and drive the narrative of games. This episode is a collection of the notes and ideas I learned from the evening’s talk.

I went up to London to attend an event about finding your perfect role and starting your career in the games industry. It was a great talk with some really cool people on the panel discussing their roles in the industry, how they got into games and their personal experiences in the industry right now. The panel consisted of Jess Hider @JessHider, Adrienne Law @sulkymoanyface, Anisa Sanusi @studioanisa and Chris Wilson @crwilso. Follow this link to a summary of the event.

This is another short episode, recorded in the car and inspired by my lack of focus. I talk a little bit about defining all your projects as I felt like the podcast was straying a little and I really want to get it back on track.
