Jalil Sadool will represent Steamroller Studios as the day two keynote speaker at the 2017 Carolina Games Summit. The Steamroller Studios keynote will take place on February 5 at 1:00 pm in the Paramount Theater.

“Jalil brings a wide range of experience in film, animation, and game design to the Carolina Games Summit,” Michael Everett Creative Director of the Carolina Games Summit states, “attendees of this keynote will see how Jalil must transition his workflow when creating similar animations across both AAA games and feature films.”

The keynote presentation, “A Study of Creature Animation in Films and Games” will explore several pieces of creature animation from films and games and share the variety of workflows behind creating each animation. Sadool will explain that even though there are similarities between VFX, feature animated films, and games, there are limitations and rules that each category carries. Attendees will leave the session with new knowledge of the varied workflows required to achieve a similar result in animation.

Tickets are available to the public and may be purchased online or at the door. Visit the official web site, Carolina Games Summit, for a full listing of all the speakers, exhibitors, and additional details.
