My name is Nathan and i am 21 years old. I was reading about becoming a Game Director and this seemed like a really reliable link:
I am going to school soon this October for media arts and animation with concentration in game design. And my classes look like:
-game programming for the artist
-game modeling and animation
-game environment art
-materials and lighting
-game production team
-language of animation and film
-digital painting techniques
-life drawing and gesture
-2d animation principles
-backround and character design
-digital editing and audio
-hard surface and organic modeling
-character modeling and rigging
And they do have the advance portion of these classes I just did not list them!
I was reading this website and i wanted to know if insidejobs.com is a reliable source for my field. Game design/ game development has always been a dream of mine since my sophomore year of high school, it is not something i came up with just off the top of my head. I know becoming director of anything is not easy and requires extremely hard work and effort to obtain the position and to keep it. And i know you have have a lot of experience with game design and working in the industry. I mean like 10+ years in the industry not just experience itself like going to school.
I am a really imaginative person and i highly believe i can become a game director sometime in my life time. But i can't just say it have prove it and make it happen. And if i try really hard and don't get the position it was still worth the effort, because game design is something amazing to achieve to begin with!
So to make it clear becoming a Game Director, I would have to be a game designer/game developer first correct? i want to make sure i was not being miss led!
