As you know from last month’s Moonlighting with Insomniac, this year we’re focusing on diversity and women in the game development industry. That theme continues this month with our guest speaker, Insomniac’s very own Gameplay Programmer, Brandi Wilcox.
Brandi graduated from Smith College with a BA in Physics and received a MFA from USC Interactive Media Division (now the Interactive Media and Games Division). While attending USC, Brandi was a design scripter intern for Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time at the Burbank studio. She later joined Insomniac’s team permanently as a scripter at the North Carolina studio. A few years later Brandi transitioned into being a gameplay programmer and that is the role she currently holds here at Insomniac. Just a few months ago, Brandi celebrated her fifth year anniversary here at Insomniac Games… she’s had quite a journey!
On another note, this month’s Moonlighting will be pushed back a week. Angela and I are attending the Great Places to Work Conference the first week of April, so we’ll be unable to host Moonlighting at our regular time. Please join Angela and I, along with our guest Brandi, on Wednesday, April, 13th at 1:30 PM PT / 4:30 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 4/13/16. Please remember, we want to encourage open communication and informative discussions but we also need to be respectful around the subject. What subject are we being respectful of? Not sure that this is needed – but maybe I’m missing something.
Looking forward to talking with you soon!
