Chris Solarski is a game designer and author specialising in the overlap between traditional craft and video games, and has developed a unique, sensory design framework called Adaptive Gameplay Aesthetics. His two books—Drawing Basics and Video Game Art, and Interactive Stories and Video Game Art—are widely considered essential reading and have been endorsed by the likes of film director Marc Forster and a founding member of the Assassin’s Creed gaming franchise.
In this exclusive composition and visual storytelling masterclass, Chris will explore the history and function of composition in traditional arts before applying these techniques to digital media like video games, VR and AR. Participants will come away with a practical understanding on how to shape the aesthetic experience of digital environments, lead the player's eye and movement and framing.
