How to break into the video game industry

The Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood is holding a panel on Thursday, 25 June with 10 artists from game studio Naughty Dog. It's a chance for students, junior artists and anyone interested in working in games to find out how to break into the industry.

There will be three sessions covering game character creation, video game environments and technical art, followed by a 30-minute Q&A with the panel. You'll have an opportunity to get feedback on your portfolio during the intervals.
