Catch it from 2pm - 3:30pm PDT on Monday the 7th of August.

He will be speaking alongside some of the best thinkers from the most revered studios in the industry, including Blizzard Entertainment’s Executive Vice President of Story and Franchise Development Lydia Bottegoni, Blur’s Creative Director Franck Balson, Xbox's Head of IP Expansion and Entertainment Kiki Wolfkill, Platige Director/Writer Tomek Suwalski, and Riot Director of Content Production Lindsey Zamplas.

Their discussion will explore the convergence of the videogame industry with mainstream entertainment, alongside the ways in which gaming CGI has been a core part of the globalisation and expansion of animation for wider, more mature audiences.
