I just found out that I am going to be an IRTS Fellow this summer. What does this mean?
Well, the IRTS Fellowship is essentially an all expense paid internship in New York City. They accept only 25 of the best and brightest people in the nation for this. I'm telling you - competition was tough. I've been applying for this since last September and have had to send approximately 30 essays and go through an interview.
IRTS is sort of like a communications trade organization. They select people from all areas of media communications and place them with companies in New York that fit their backgrounds. I will be placed in a commercial production company. They haven't told me which one yet though.
Regardless, I'm becoming a New Yorker this summer, and will probably be one for a while. Any Gamedev New Yorker's out there?
