The Power of Quality Asset Creation and Sound in Gaming Demonstrated at IGDS 2010

India Game Developer Summit 2010 – First, Independent Event on Game Programming, Business and Careers

Bangalore, February 08, 2010: It is common among writers, story tellers and even the audience/game players to believe that visuals alone can tell a story well. While visuals can bring life to the story and connect to the audience actively, sound can connect to the audience passively and most unobtrusively, says Varun Nair who is coming this February to India's first and independent annual summit for the game development ecosystem - India Game Developer Summit (http://www.gamedevelopersummit.com/). Sound - a combination of music, dialogues and sound effects - is very important in story telling & enhancing realism in game play. Visual without complimenting sound is like a story told with no emotions.

 

At Indian GDS Varun will talk about designed sound and their uses, foley and real world sounds and its importance in enhancing and adding depth to game play. He will teach dialogues, learning and adapting from other media and forms of entertainment such as films, theatre & music. He will also cover common queries on making a brief and time and asset management. The talk will also cover technicalities and their creative applications including choosing the 'right' sound, and space, perspective, timbre and pitch, quality, delivery and working formats. Varun will cover the common equipment and tools used to create sounds before wrapping the talk by demonstrating the use of contrast and the power of silence.

 

Varun Nair has dabbled in most areas of sound - from the music industry, post production for commercials & feature films to game sound. He has created assets for Indian developers & some international projects like the ICC Cricket title for EA.
