Game Streaming: Video & Role-Playing Live!
The rise of Twitch, which has more than 140 million users per month, and similar streaming services, has made one thing very clear: people like to watch other people play games live, and interact with them while they do it. This is not only true for video games, but also for other types of games, such as role-playing and board games. How do gaming streamers make a career out of this? What type of equipment do they use to produce consistently high-quality streams? How can livestreaming games be used to advance a more conventional movie business career? These and other questions will be discussed by our panelists, who are well-known video and role-playing game streamers.
