Below is a description of my talks and workshops. They are low tech and broadly applicable to any creative field. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and lets schedule a visit to your school!
POOP FOR THE STARS!! An overly honest portrayal of the creative process
Everyone can relate to the fear of not being good enough- from programmers to artists, highschoolers to veteran professionals. In this talk Tomas recounts stories and lessons from working at Pixar, Bungie, Blizzard, and his current position at Riot Games.
Tomas covers a broad array of topics like: rivalry, crying, failure, networking, interview tactics, original ideas, spaceships and... pooping. Find out what it's all about!
ULTIMATE INSANITY BRAINSTORM!! A lightning fast creativity bootcamp
In this workshop, participants perform rapid brainstorming exercises to release the pressure of coming up with "genius" ideas. Using techniques from major game/film studios, the group will build trust with each other, build self confidence, and build awesome ideas!
It sucks when projects end up unfinished in some forgotten folder. Come join the craziness and stop leaving everything half done!! Find out how to set yourself up for success from the very start of your next creative endeavor.
