In this 2019 GDC talk, game writer Greg Buchanan discuses strategies to cope with the positive and negative aspects of freelance work, both financially and psychologically.
It was a helpful talk that outlined a clear path to ultimately building your craft and reputation through international work.
Buchanan shared examples from his own careers, and offered up a high-level overview of a number of different techniques that can be applied to your own work, in small teams or large.
It was a standout talk at GDC earlier this year, and now you can watch it for free on the official GDC YouTube channel!
