PANEL: FILM & GAMES - OPPOSITES ATTRACT
Games based on film licenses have been an important part of the videogame industry since the beginning of professional game development. The film and games industries are now starting to collaborate in different ways. Moderated by Bruno Felix (Submarine), this panel will discuss the following topics: the market for European film games; the emergence of indy and arthouse games; and the opportunities for creative collaboration between film and game professionals. With panelists Alexis Nolent (head of World Wide Story Design at Ubisoft), 
Ian Verchere (Creator and and producer of over 30 games, including the million-plus selling SSX Tricky and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and Jay Bennett (producer, director, and writer of cross-platform interactive entertainment). 

HOT SPOT #003 VIRTUAL WORLDS: DONT'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!
In the face of a fading Second Life hype, Hot Spot #003 will explore the many possibilities and as-of-yet unfulfilled promises of virtual worlds. Hot Spot guest curators Martijn de Waal (writer/researcher) and Femke Wolting (director of Submarine) will discuss the latest developments with three key note speakers: Peter Marx (develops online worlds for MTV, such as Pimp my Ride), Douglas Gayeton (director of the first film shot entirely in Second Life), and Chris Carella (Creative Director at The Electric Sheep Company).
