Games at Staffordshire University
Staffordshire University is home to the UK’s biggest game design program, boasting a range of dedicated facilities that include the Epic Games lab (operated in partnership with Epic Games themselves) and the biggest motion capture studio in European academia – which, quite surprisingly, I am yet to break.
Students have the opportunity to explore almost every facet of the games industry, everything from games journalism to advanced engine development, performance capture and art creation.
What I do…
I started working at the University in August 2016 as a support Technician, ensuring that the needs of our lecturers and (over 750) students are consistently met.
I likewise assist with some of the various marketing materials, such as short vidocs and branding for our commercial motion capture stage.
Recently, I’ve started undertaking more research based roles, specifically in regards to Hyper Reality and potential gameplay scenarios.
