August to September 2017, I had the very special honor and duty to help out on-site & fulltime (5 days a week) at Ubisoft Bluebyte as an audio designer, working in the trenches with the audio team of audio director Stefan Randelshofer.
This was beyond helpful & insightful, I learned so many new things & tricks, new perspectives, different ways to work with and think about audio, while being involved with 3 games, both international and national IPs. I mean, I am doing this for a while, but this big picture perspective of a company like Ubisoft, and Stefan’s strife for excellence – this was a great level up for me, for sure.
From the beginning, this was a limited position until the end of September, but we will of course stay in touch and who knows, maybe we will ride into battle again! Big thanks to the team: Stefan, Tino, Felix, Gabs and Arne, and all the other folks at Ubisoft Blue Byte! Thanks for the opportunity!
I hope to be able to shed more light on the specific games I got to work on, but safe to say, I take a lot of new input & energy into 2018!
