Tuesday 20th, the Orange County Chapter of IGDA had one of their first meetings in an attempt to bring independent game developers from around Orange County and even from Los Angeles together to meet and greet eachother while taking the first steps to becoming charted with IGDA. The meeting was held at the Motion Capture Lab at Obsidian Entertainment in Irvine, with guest speaker Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. Urquhart made a very informative presentation about Contracts and Agreements, which I found to be very helpful in many of my current agreements with developers and publishers I am currently dealing with.
Next meeting is to be held on November 17th, which the group will start the running for board positions.
After I acquire the pictures Estill took during the meeting (including a few shots of me sitting in the front row literally 2 feet away from CEO Feargus Urquhart), I will update this post accordingly.
Heres a pic of me and Johnnie Estill, photographer of the event and brilliant instructor at The Art Institute of Orange County.
