Tonight: Full Sail Alumni & Game Sound Designer Josh Davidson


Gamers and audio fanatics alike are sure to enjoy tonight’s presentation with Full Sail Recording Arts grad Josh Davidson. Josh has spent the past four years at two different game developers (Volition Inc. and Gearbox Software), cranking out original sound design and additional music composition for hit games like Borderlands, Saints Row 2, and Red Faction: Guerrilla.

Currently working in-house at Gearbox Software on Borderlands 2, Josh has a lot of insight about game audio, the benefits of working for game developers, as well as tips for breaking into the industry. His presentation (at 5:15 p.m. in FS1-123A) will include audio and video examples of his work on Borderlands, as well as some expertise about game audio workflow and advice about getting noticed by game developer studios. This is definitely an event that you don’t want to miss – see you there!
