NOISEfestival: Your Creative Future happened this week.
It was a conference geared up to help those with aims to enter the creative arts as a career. A very insightful thing; as most of us who’re interested in the creative network have no idea how to start their career. I certainly don’t, and until it happens I don’t know if I ever will.
The highlight of these talks was the one given by Ian Livingstone – both as a fangirl and as a hopeful creative. His area of expertise is certainly of relevant interests to me. As Founder of my own hobby (Games Workshop) it was a great insight to see how it all started; and the connections with D&D and how it developed.
It was also particularly interesting to see how Mr. Livingstone became involved with Video Gaming – as a player and his relationship to Eidos.
