Description

SAE Liverpool are delighted to welcome Opinder Singh Chaggar to take an in-depth look into how to break into the games and animation industry. Opinder will be presenting examples of his own work and showing in-game footage of test levels showing how work professionals test their animations.

The class will cover: tailoring showreels, different styles of animation and the process of getting an animation into a game. The talk will finish with a Q&A.

Currently employed at Travellers Tales, a Warner Bros Games Studio, Opinder Chaggar has worked on a wide range of Lego Titles from Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, Avengers, Batman and more.

He has worked for big name companies both here in the UK and across in the US. These include EA, Ninja Theory, High Moon Studios, Trion World Network and Sony Entertainment UK. At these companies he worked on triple A titles such as Heavenly Sword, The Bourne Conspiracy and Motorstorm Apocalypse.
