On Friday, August 3 at 3 p.m. Digital Animation and Game Design students Brandt Howard, Lloyd Nguyen and Paul Chamberlain will be joined by sound design specialist Tyler Burke to discuss how they created a game worthy of the finals at E3's College Game Competition. 

Then on Saturday, August 4 at noon, Professor David Baker Saturday, August 4 at noon, will present on how the art of animation has changed over the years and look at where it may go in the future.
