PrerequisitesVery basic understanding of film-production principles and an interest in video games. Recent experience with playing on current game consoles (Xbox, Xbox360, or Nintendo Game Cube) is also helpful.
Intended AudiencePeople in the film segments of the computer graphics industry who are considering a change to the games industry and artists, producers, and game developers who are working on their first next-generation game title.
