Cameron Harris  |  Senior Editor, BioWare

Books, films and TV shows all have editors - and so should video games. Veteran editor Cameron Harris (Nintendo, Microsoft, BioWare) explains how editors add value to a project, a team and a company as story shapers, content managers and brand specialists. Using real-life examples, she outlines how to leverage editing to meet specific needs and discusses how establishing a company-wide editing culture can generate both creative and financial success. This session challenges narrative teams and studio management to invest in a much-needed discipline for every game and for the entire industry.

They will receive specific, real-life examples of editing tasks that they can implement in their own projects. They will understand how embracing editing as part of the company culture increases both creative and financial success.
