Happy New Year!!
With the New Year comes a new direction for our interactive blog, Moonlighting with Insomniac, that we are pretty excited about! 2016 will be all about bringing more focus to diversity in the game development industry. While Moonlighting with Insomniac was developed to give you face time with our recruitment team and ALL of our developers, we are choosing to highlight female developers at Insomniac and have them provide us with their viewpoints/advice on careers in the industry and their particular discipline.
We hope that by featuring the awesome, talented women in our studio we can inspire other women developers both working and aspiring to work in the industry. This is an open forum where you can come speak freely on the topic. We’ll be advertising our blogs via Twitter and LinkedIn so if its something you’re passionate about as well – please help us spread the word by sharing, re-tweeting and re-posting.
Our first guest this year is Nina Fricker, Insomniac’s very own Animation Lead. Nina has been working in the game industry for over 15 years, 8 of those at Insomniac. Up until two years ago her primary roles had been providing rigging and scripting support as a Character TD. Now she is leading the animation department in the North Carolina studio.
As always – Moonlighting is the first WEDNESDAY of the month. January’s will fall on the 6th at 130 pm PT / 430 pm ET.
The comments section is open now for your questions so feel free to post away and we’ll answer you when we log in on 1/6/16. Please remember, we want to encourage open communication and informative discussions but we also need to be respectful around the subject.
Talk to you next year!
