Penny Dreadful Productions (PDP) an Atlanta based production company will join Britt Griffith of SyFy’s Ghost Hunters to answers questions and give tips on making it in film/TV during their joint keynote panel discussion.  Griffith works all over the world in front of the camera investigating the paranormal. When not filming with Ghost Hunters, Griffith works at his own company, Sun Set Production Studios.   PDP provides conceptual design, prosthetics, and props for major motion pictures such as the Book of Eli as well as cast members for popular shows like AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Michael Resnick, the co-founder and lead developer of Hazardous Software, will cover the use of time travel and time manipulation as a unique gameplay mechanism.  Hazardous Software recently released Achron a real-time strategy game where players can time travel simultaneously and independently.  Resnick will use this experience to discuss ways of approaching time travel from a gameplay perspective.

Hands-on training sessions by industry professionals from companies like Redstorm Entertainment, Autodesk, and college educators will also be returning. Building on the continued success of past years over 17 tournaments will be featured.  Rounding out the event, the exhibition hall, will be packed with industry and educational representatives.
