In October this year, back before we swapped Pumpkins for Mince Pies, our SuperAgents, Natalie and Yashi attended their second event of the year: Develop Conference 2021 in Brighton, UK.
Develop is the networking hub that brings together creative professionals from the Game Dev community across all of Europe. Welcoming the likes of everyone from global superstars to micro indie devs, it was the perfect opportunity for our team to further get to know the industry that we have fallen in love with.
Natalie told us “We had a fantastic day at Develop. It was my first time attending and I’d been told that it may not be beneficial for VO agents and/or talent but boy were they wrong! We made connections with creatives who had stands in the room and caught up with some familiar faces who were also attending as guests. We gladly swept up the freebies, too!”
Yashi also filled us in on her experience at Develop “It was amazing to be around so many creative people, who were also interested in the fact that VO agents were in attendance. It was certainly awe-inspiring to be in the presence of all the various gaming companies, some of which I have played. As Natalie said, the freebies certainly helped, especially the beanie hat which came in handy in very windy Brighton! I can’t wait for the next one!”
A special mention to the Devs we connected with on the day; Ubisoft UK, Team 17, Anything World, Red Beard Games, d3t, Hypixel and MAG Interactive.
And it was a delight to catch up with Team OMUK – Mark, Natalie and Jerome. We hope to see you again soon!
Natalie and Yashi have been super busy with Gaming VO castings these past 12 months and we’re very proud to have our own talent working in such an exciting industry. We look forward to even more opportunities coming our way in the New Year!
