Presentation

Overview

The creative person journeys down a challenging, meandering road, constantly under attack by the outside forces of industry. They don’t have a map or a compass… just some guidelines learned long ago and a few helpful hands met along the way. The odds of reaching their goals are always stacked against them… but that never stopped Luke Skywalker, She-ra or Link.

James White, founder of the Signalnoise Studio, will tell his story of navigating the creative industry with highs and lows. Even though he’s grown up (-ish) now, James’ origin story tells of a passionate kid bursting with creativity, and looking for ways to bring his ideas to fruition. So how did he keep that youthful fire burning for decades? James will discuss his process and creative outlooks, the strength of exploration, and how to keep your Power Sword sharp.
