Wow! As an educator, this is something I find really interesting. I am going to have to get in contact with these two asap.
Experienced guys no doubt, but not sure I would attend a school with such bad grammar on it’s web page. It’s not English school but it still looks unprofessional to read that.
@Donald: Thanks for your comment. We’ve recently tightened up the grammar the web page and this posting. We’ll continue to do our best in the future to inspire confidence our ability to convey our knowledge of video game audio.
I’ve seen the creators of this school speak numerous times at GDC, PAX, Game Sound Conference & many other presentations & panels… They totally on top of game audio. As a sound designer for animated television looking to get more into games, I’m very much looking forward to this!
Where is the school located? Will the course be online? If so on what days and which time zone? How does this work exactly?
