LEAMINGTON SPA, UK., Blitz Games Studios is pleased to announce that online registration for its 2010 student Open Days is now open.
Blitz Games Studios` Open Days are now in their fifth successful year and for 2010 there will be three student days running on Friday 26 February, Friday 5 March and Friday 19 March, catering respectively to first and second year students studying any games-related discipline, animation students and final year students studying any games-related discipline.
As usual, the days will offer a broad introduction to the enormous range of skills and talents involved in creating games, as well as a studio tour and an opportunity to talk in depth with and get firsthand feedback from experienced development staff.
The Open Days are free to attend but all applicants must complete a work sample in order to be considered for a place. The closing date for work sample submission is Monday 11 January 2010.
"We`re extremely pleased to be announcing the Open Days for 2010," says Education Liaison Manager Kim Blake. "Last year we had a record number of submissions and we hope that trend will continue. We`d also like to remind students that these days aren`t just aimed at those who are doing games-specific degrees – we positively welcome submissions from those studying maths, computer science, illustration, pure animation and so on, all subjects that teach skills that are needed in today`s thriving games industry."
Student feedback from March 2009: "I just want to say thanks for yesterday, it was a pleasure meeting the staff and I had a wonderful experience, the event left me feeling very happy and inspired. I now have a much clearer idea of how to take the next step in my career."
