Anton & Damian are joined by Guy Whitmore in a hotel room to look back at the conference, the game audio community, the podcast crowd that was amazingly present at the morning round ups and a look forward at the year ahead.

Oh Friday mornings, you are so beautifully cruel. An epic turn out for the last Sight Glass morning scrum of 2014. Ofcourse we look at the day before. We dive straight into Alastair Macgregor’s talk on GTA V and continue on with the 2 Last of Us Talks. This leads Anton and Ben into a bit HDR talk on “Pre-Seeding”. Ofcourse obviously this is followed by a discussion on the current relationship of the composer with their projects. A look at the day ahead is followed up by a discussion on the GANG awards. And we pay particular attention to Brandon Cole.

Anton & Damian are joined by a ton of people, including Andreas Varga, who together with Anton toke the stage at GDC official day 1 to do their talk about the next gen dynamic audio system of Killzone Shadow Fall. Of course the other talks are also dissected, Killer Instinct, Tomb Raider, etc etc. A discussion ensues about many things, collaboration, the use of bows in sound design are not the least of which. We also look ahead at the day of course.
It got so busy that unfortunately not everybody is as intelligible as we would like. Need to find a new approach for next year.

And we are 40! An early rise again for the guys and girls but so much excitement for the audio bootcamp day of GDC. Damian has some responsibilities there this year and Anton has his own thing going too. We talk about Oculus Rift and jam on what we expect from sound there. We also welcome new and old friends. So amazing to find people where there before Sightglass even opened. Thanks Guys!
