Composer Austin Wintory and Director/Actor Troy Baker unpack the incredibly elaborate five-year process of writing, producing, and directing the interactive musical roleplaying game Stray Gods. This talk details the process of discovering the mechanics for interactive songs, the long road to writing and testing the songs, and the equally long road in casting, directing, and producing the songs.
Attendees will be encouraged to try something they've never attempted, as was the case for the creative team behind Stray Gods, while also receiving practical tips from composition, production, and directing standpoints.
This is for game professionals of all levels—from composers and voice talent to audio directors, and even game designers interested in what it takes to explore a largely ignored game genre.
