The Gears of War, Infinity Blade and Fortnite universes started out as concepts on paper, but were lovingly crafted into living worlds by talented external artists shepherded by Epic studio staff. Looking back through these titles, attendees will discover how the Epic quest for high quality artwork was fulfilled. They will learn the secrets of Epic's success in utilizing outsourcers and will be better prepared to circumvent some of the obstacles Epic encountered in the early days of production for all these award-winning titles.

Takeaway

From mobile to console to PC - each project has different requirements. Epic will show how anyone working with outsourcers can preserve the artistic vision on multiple platforms. All Epic studios work with our outsourcing partners, and attendees will gain unique techniques to make the outsourcer integration go smoothly.

Intended Audience

Artists, art managers and production staff currently working with creative outsourcers or anyone considering working with external art teams will gain helpful knowledge for use in big or small game productions.
