GDC 2017 is just weeks away! As you're looking over the session schedule and figuring out what to see, organizers want to quickly remind you that a bumper crop of GDC 2017 speakers have put together 60-second (ish) "Flash Forward" pitch videos for their talks!
These are perfect summations of what makes GDC sessions so great: they're funny, punchy, and remarkably informative. Plus, they're easy to watch! You can just head over to the official GDC YouTube channel, which is now filled to the brim with snappy videos submitted by a broad array of GDC 2017 speakers.
What's nice about these is that they're very fun and personalized pitches for why you (yes you!) should carve out some time in your busy schedule to check out that each talk while you're attending GDC.
This is the second year we've done this, and this time around we've organized these GDC 2017 Flash Forward pitches into a playlist (embedded below) and added more information about each speaker and a link to their talk in the description of their video. Have a look!
GDC organizers have also been working with Gamasutra, official media partner of GDC, to produce video interviews with a handful of notable GDC 2017 speakers.
If you have some free time, these are well worth watching because they're meatier conversations that explore the speaker's work in games, why they're speaking at GDC 2017, and what they think fellow devs should know about the art and business of making games.
You can find these videos in their own separate playlist on the official GDC YouTube channel, and they're well worth a watch!
You can find lots more great videos over on the official GDC YouTube channel, which is also regularly updated with new talks recorded at GDCs through the ages. Subscribe, and you'll be the first to know about when new videos are added to the channel!
