We're baaacckk! The symposium you have come to know and love. There will be free food and drinks as always, as catered and provided by Sheppard Mullin, the law firm that loves and supports us so much! The symposium will focus on practical tips that game developers should know to get their game from idea to market!
We have invited the following three speakers, and they have graciously agreed to present:
Catherine Swanwick, CEO of Catlilli Games. Catherine has developed a number of educational games, which she has commercialized, and for which she has won a number of awards. She is in talks to license her games to major publishers. She will provide practical advice on her experiences and what other game devs should know. CatLilli is currently one of the companies in the VSGI. This is a serious games focused accelerator associated with George Mason University.
The other speaker is James Casey. James is Associate Director of the VSGI and teaches game design at GMU. James has extensive game development experience with some blockbuster games. He will speak about the benefits of working with an accelerator such as VSGI and offer practical tips to developers as well.
James Gatto, is a veteran game industry lawyer at Sheppard Mullin. He represents some of the industry's biggest companies, developers, and insiders. He will talk a bit about some practical advice for game developers to go from idea to commercialization, as gleaned from his vast experiences, observations, and connections. This is truly a special event that is not to be missed!
