How to Get Your First Job Composing for Video Games
I was reading through the websites of popular video game composers over the weekend and while I was browsing Leon Willett's website, I came cross this article on "How to Get Your First Job Composing for Video Games." It's chock-full of advise such as: How to get started, What you'll need, What to focus on, Negotiating a contract, and so on.
If there are any aspiring video game composers reading this.. it's never a bad idea to get some advice from the industry veterans.
Willet is best known in the video game industry for his composition work on Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (a personal favorite of mine).
