The speakers will be 3D concept artist/illustrator Fausto De Martini, who's recently being working on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and the Avatar sequels, and cinematic artist Seth Thompson, who's worked on videogames ranging from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos to Diablo III to Final Fantasy VII.

The pair will reveal the evolution of their careers through games and, in Martini's case, into films. They'll share the highlights of their experiences as well as the struggles, and offer insights into how they've made names for themselves in the competitive CG industry.
