About the session
Baskug Games: Game Developers

Game Development: A look into the trend in Western Visayas.
We would like to know the roadmap and raise questions about the maturation of the industry. In some ways, the vast changes that have affected the games industry over the last few years have created opportunities. The move to a digital marketplace where thousands of developers are able to sell their games in online app stores has created discoverability. But in a lot of places there are supportive communities growing up to counter the financial uncertainty as well.

Matt Sudario
Technical Coordinator at Center for New Cinema
Breaking Indie: Life as a 3D Animator.
We would like to know more of how being a 3D animator making media for various purposes such as short film, comedy, or story telling /narrative / educational. How do you start your process? How to start making an animation?
Matt Sudario would also let the audience see how 3D animation can shape the academe and archiving of Iloilo’s history.
