  • Unity for Cinematics Workshop

    Unity is quickly becoming one of the most valuable tools for creators who want to build short films, episodic animated series, and cut-scenes or trailers for other CG content. Whether you’re a director, animator, technical artist, cinematographer, or general Unity enthusiast looking to dig into Unity’s film workflows, this workshop will provide the core fundamentals of linear storytelling. This hands-on CLASS will help you understand how to leverage Unity’s tools and capabilities to build your next (or first!) cinematic scene.

I also occasionally speak about diversity and women in game development - especially from a perspective focused on game creators in Latin America.
