Het is altijd leuk wanneer bekende figuren uit de filmwereld uitspraken doen over de gameswereld en de toenadering tussen die twee. Zo zal de bekende designer Ian McCaig, eerder verantwoordelijk voor films als 'Interview with a vampire' en de eerste twee StarWars episodes, een lezing houden over karakterontwerp in games.

Meer info over de conferentie is op de officiele site.Iain McCaig is one of the motion picture industry's finest artistic directors and concept designers. He recently created principal character and costume designs for Star Wars--Episode One, as well as the forthcoming Star Wars--Episode Two.

His design credits include James Cameron's Terminator II, Steven Spielberg's Hook, Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula, Neil Jordon's Interview With the Vampire, and Sony Pictures' Dinotopia.

McCaig also works as a screenwriter. He adapted the Ursula K. Le Guin classic: A Wizard of Earthsea for ShadowCatcher Entertainment, and wrote several screenplays and treatments for Stories to Remember (including the Disney Channel's 'People'). He is currently writing and designing a new version of The Pied Piper for Imax/Mainframe.Misschien zouden er sowieso wat meer film screenwriters in de gameswereled terecht mogen komen. Het zou het gebrek aan storyline in veel games goed van pas komen.
