I Wanna Dance with Somebody – Whitney Houston. Gets everyone in the mood for a boogie!
Dubai – Definitely played this level the most and it was such a great intro to Hitman 3 with such a beautiful setting.
Angel Delight, it’s a powdered dessert from the UK. That or crisp sandwiches, and my flavour of choice in said sandwiches would be Prawn Cocktail.
I’m surprisingly amazing at lobbing laundry into the basket from across the room.
Most – Origami dragon that a colleague made me.
Least – Reaching for your coffee cup to find it’s empty!
I’m going to say cooking – the monstrosities I learnt in my university days still haunts me because I end up still cooking them.
2. The Wolf Among Us
I am a Senior Gameplay Animator on the Project 007. My role involves a mix of motion capture (in and out of the suit), keyframe animation and technical engine work (state machines etc.). Most recently undergoing player locomotion with some new, exciting challenges.
I would like to see myself as a friendly, approachable person who is always up for a good laugh. I like to skate and swim in the sea when the Swedish weather allows it. When it doesn’t, being indoors to game, watch TV and read suits me just fine too. I absolutely LOVE animals – I have always said if I didn’t work in games I would be working with animals in some way or another.
I think I just love to learn, and at IOI there are so many things to learn, from bouncing ideas off other creative and technical people to exploring the boundaries of your own abilities.
I always thought that I wanted to work in movies, though working in games sparked a passion for the unique technical and artistic balance I was striving for.
I am currently learning to script – though I am a complete amateur I am trying to learn C# for Unity and Python for Maya and Motionbuilder. I like creating some ad hoc scripts to help myself and others have an easier time when it comes to these tools.
For a colleague’s birthday some of us hired a small boat and drove around the canal with some beverages and snacks – this was like my second week, ‘twas an awesome slice of what the people at IOI are like.
“Work smart not hard.”
It’s easy to get frustrated and find work hard at times, sometimes taking a step back and thinking about the problem helps pave the way to solving it in a different, more constructive way.
