In 2021, I completed a full time semester at the Danish National Academy of Interactive Entertainment in Copenhagen. I participated in a special program focussing on game directing. Together with my producer, we managed a team of 19 students from different educations and developed 3 games throughout the semester. We developed our first Mini Game within the first 7 days of the program and learned a lot about our processes. For the second round, we only had 10 days to recreate the same game, but with more elevated design and programming. Our work improved quickly, so we confidently developed our Graduation Game Carnivalien over the course of 6 weeks. In between those game productions, each of our team members, myself included, participated in special training and workshops for their competence.
At DADIU, I learned a lot about game development and design, as well as communication and conflict management. I've had two mentors and many industry professionals, teaching me the process of game development and finding my personal style as a director. I'm looking forward to utilizing my communication and team leading skills in future projects.
