With Black Mirror’s Bandersnatch capturing the reaching a massive global audience, the rise of ‘FMV’ as it was once known, continues. But what’s involved in creating a live action video game, and exactly how interactive can they be? Allan Plenderleith, creator of the world’s first full length interactive zombie game THE HUNTING and BAFTA-nominated multi-platform title THE BUNKER, explains the unique and sometimes painful process of making a game using real actors in real locations. During the session we will look at how FMV has evolved over the years, from the early days of CD-ROM titles, to the current wave of higher production value (and higher acting quality) titles. We will also explore the benefits and disadvantages of filming ‘assets’ using real life actors, the cost implications, the production challenges, and the technological challenges involved in getting seamless transitions between shots.

We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
