    KEY STAGE 5 - Sixth Forms & Colleges

    NORWICH GAMING FESTIVAL Talks & WOrkshops

    Wed 24 & Thu 25 May | 9.45am - 2.30pm | The Forum, Norwich | Free

    Join us for a dedicated Sixth Forms and Colleges day with fascinating talks and workshops lead by Norwich University of the Arts and the University of East Anglia.

    If your students have an interest in a career in coding, game design or the psychology of gaming, this day is for you.

    NORWICH UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS (NUA) TALKS:
    > CONCEPT ART AND THE DESIGN PROCESS
    > PROCESS OF CREATING REAL-TIME GAME ASSETS

    The games industry is a fascinating and inspiring place to work, which is constantly evolving and being driven forward by new technologies, markets and user experiences. Games are more diverse than ever. Hear two fascinating talks on this growth industry from NUA lecturers.

    UNIVERSITY OF EAST ANGLIA (UEA) WORKSHOP:
    > IS THERE A PERFECT LET'S PLAYER?

    Let’s Plays, and the Let’s Players who create them, are a key part of gaming content on YouTube and other video and streaming platforms. Popular personalities, video series and interactive streams provide entertainment for millions of viewers – but what is it that makes certain Let’s Players so successful?

    In this workshop students will have the chance to break down and analyse the techniques used by top channels, investigating how they create impact, excitement and humour in their videos, as we try to decide whether there is a formula for ‘the perfect Let’s Player’.
