Game Trailers are a vital asset for advertising a game: they can be an excellent tool to create understanding for a game and give viewers an impression of gameplay, mood and setting of a game. They can also attract attention on social media and on store fronts – but to unleash a trailer’s full potential, it has to be very well thought through.
Our expert panel will guide indie devs through the most important questions and around the most common pitfalls in the process of concepting and creating a game trailer: how to grab the viewers’ attention right from the start? How to make sure that you get your message across? And what role do sound and music play in a game trailer?
On the panel:
- Derek Lieu, Creative Director at Derek Lieu Creative
- Elisha Male, Lead Video Editor at Bethesda Studios
- Kuba Sobek, Studio Owner & Videoware Producer at Radikal Studio
The event is free of charge. Participants can ask their questions via chat. The event will be streamed live on the Gamecity Hamburg YouTube channel.
The event will be held in English.
