AetherCon Summer Roundtable Series

 

Format

We ask that you join us at 15 minutes prior to show time so that we can make sure to establish a solid connection with you before the recording begins. That way we aren't trying to resolve any connection issues while people are watching. We will bring you in by sending you an email with a link. Click the link and you're in (Google Hangout) - easy peezy. We try to do all the work for you.

This is a video show. You will need to have a camera and a microphone and if you can please use headphones as it reduces echo. Also, please leave your lights on. The more light you have in the room, the better you show up and the greater your video quality will be. Web cams get grainy in low light. If there are two of you, our set up works best if you are on separate computers. However, this is not a requirement. It just helps to keep you both completely in the shot.

Introduction: Host and guests names and “From” (typically your company or project, or your website).

Interview (60-80 min): This is where we talk to you all about... You. We will make sure to hit all of the points you want to cover and avoid all those you do not. We want to focus mostly on the stories behind the creators. How you got into gaming, game design, influences, and wacky gaming "war stories" of being a game designer. Above all else, we want you to have an enjoyable experience. While not the focus of the show, you will of course be able to do some product push and if you have product that you'd like to show off, please make sure to have it handy.

Wrap Up: There's no need to worry about plugging your website or giving out links because we'll do this as part of the show wrap up.
