“At PAX Aus, we’ll be on the show floor with some of our course mentors, available to discuss advice on career paths within the games industry, sharing our expertise from film, TV production and game development. If you have aspirations for game development and a portfolio, we’d love to speak to you at PAX this year”, said CG Spectrum’s head of school Jeff Pepper.

Mentors who worked on games including Crysis, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Sleeping Dogs, Darksiders, Batman: Arkham City will be travelling to Australia to meet new would-be students and to share their knowledge; including Greg Hird-Rutter who worked on acclaimed Academy Award winning film Life of Pi and is currently working on Ubisoft Montreal’s new title For Honor.
