Having shown games at GDC and PAX East this year as an indie plus traveled around the world to speak about fun but good game design. I want to share some of that knowledge.
What does the mentorship look at a high level?
For this month-long membership, you will get dedicated one-on-one time each week. Every week you will submit your updated work for review. We will meet to discuss your submitted work over voice chat for 4 weekly sessions for one hour. During these meetings, I will provide dedicated one-on-one feedback via chat with screen sharing, notated documents, and personalized demonstrations if needed. As well as any other notes or reference material that may help. During our scheduled meetings, I will also give you advice on what your next step is, I want you to walk away each week feeling motivated and excited!
Are you looking to start working on your dream game project? Do you have an existing material you want to improve? Are you looking for advice on game mechanics, character development, story, or gameplay? Are you looking for advice on branding and web presence? We can focus entirely on one of those aspects or a mix of a little bit of everything. It is entirely up to you, but whatever you choose I am excited to help you grow in that area!
Prior to the start of your mentorship email me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) with the ideas and goals you have for the mentorship so we can finalize the goals before getting started.
At the conclusion, I will hand over all materials from the mentorship. This will include notes, reference, documentation, and any other materials from your mentorship for you to have as a reference.
When Does The Mentorship Occur?
The mentorship will start the first week or each month. So if you pay mid-January, the mentorship will start the first week of February. The one on one calls will take place on the weekend during the morning to midday hours on Eastern Standard Time. Some weeknights can be accommodated on EST.
When & How Will You Be Charged?
You WILL BE CHARGED upon signing up.
This mentorship does not guarantee you a job in the industry or employment or internship possibilities with my current employer. This mentorship is designed to help you grow your skills as an artist to better your artwork.
This mentorship is not a class and I will not be providing a course outline. As a mentor, I am here to support you. It is up to you as the artist to pick a material or materials to focus on and work on them over the course of the month.
As I mentioned previously, please email me directly prior to starting to the start of this mentorship so we can go over goals for the month. I am currently working full time so I will not always be able to be reached outside of our weekly meetings. If I don't get back to you for a few days outside of our weekly meetings, that is why.
You are not allowed to record these sessions or redistribute them in any form or manner.
