This is a show about videogames, the people who play them and the people who make them. Each episode, a guest on the show talks about the games that have shaped their life in one way or another. Games that have inspired them, games that forged connections with others & games that have soothed wounds. Checkpoints!
Checking for Autosave.
This is a special episode of Checkpoints all about the relationship between performance and playing games. I spoke with a number of actors about how their relationship with games was shaped by their experience of acting.
Marta Da Silva talks about the challenges of motion capture - Kirsty Strain discusses some of the more bizarre details of voice over work - Ben Sherwin talks about role playing servers - Paul Kozinski and Colin Little chat about some of their more embarrassing performances playing videogames - Amy Conway talks about how a TED talk about videogames formed the basis of her new theatre show - Tony Coles argues the case for the player as the virtuoso and William Pugh discusses the challenge of creating a game to be performed, and has some things to say about youtubers.
