Life Changing or Career Building?
With the game industry ever changing to keep up with the advances of technology, it's not surprising that it's hard to maintain a course structure that can keep up to date with the industry. The core skills are what's important to learn and that goes for any artist in any industry. Learning skills that can be carried and worked into different carers is the best way for people without work experience. My biggest fear is why would anyone employ someone fresh out of university when there likely to have interviewed people who already have lots of experience working in the industry. The only thing I can say to that is I just hope developers appreciate young talent and fresh thinking and creativity that maybe older generations don't see or haven't come into contact with. The ability to be original had a lot to do with things that we come into contact with and the way we see the world through our own eyes. That's why I feel that courses like these are important for the industry because it so hard to find people that share a common interest. Not just in playing games, but also really appreciating how there made.
