FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: How is the class structured?

A: The Program lasts 8 weeks, meeting remotely at least 1 hour every week at your time and day of choice. Each class is tailored around your skills and ambitions. We start with a game genre and platform of your choice as a Portfolio piece, and we build stage by stage – with real-world expectations, contexts and leadership. Or, put another way, we make a fake game with a very real User Interface under very real conditions. From concept to wireframe to art – all the way up to what to put in your Portfolio as a write-up!

Q: Do you ever take on students outside of America?

A: All the time! I’ll try my very best to work with you to find time for our Sessions that work for both our timezones. I also know real life comes at you fast, so our hours are completely flexible. Forgot a Doctor’s appointment? Not feeling well? Dog got bit? We’ll just move our classes around, no biggie.

 

Q: What programs do we use in the Mentorship?

A: We’ll be using Miro primarily, a fantastic tool for us to synchronously toss ideas and jpgs around. We may also be jumping into Industry-standard Photoshop lessons on Art and Design where I’ll provide “over-the-shoulder” screenshared guidance. In my experience, Figma is rarely if ever used in console / mobile game development, but you are welcome to any tool that you are comfortable with.

 

Q: Do you teach Engines like Unreal or Unity?

A: No. It takes quite a bit of time just teaching fundamental Design, let alone engines like Unreal or Unity. I am learning more about these engines every day, and I hope to incorporate them into a more advanced class later. But take heart: most companies have dedicated UI engineers to do the implementation these days anyway.

 

Q: Are you available weekends?

A: No, I need my weekends, too! I have been toying around with a weekend class, but it would have to be at a dramatically increased cost, and I distinctly remember telling you this place has no hidden fees!

Q: What about Refunds for the Program?

A: My Mentorship has a strict No Refund policy.

Q: Hey, didn’t you have a free version of your Mentorship, The Voyager Program?

A: The very experimental Voyager Program has been discontinued because, frankly, everybody wanted the free class! Admittedly, it was poor planning on my part, and I would love to open that charity / scholarship again. But there are just too many people flooding me while paying Mentees are patiently waiting their turns. When I can figure this out a little better – or get sponsors to cover the costs, I’ll happily reinstate the Voyager Program!

Q: What if I’m on a Payment Plan and can’t make a payment?

A: If payment lapses, Classes are on hold indefinitely and once you pay, we’re back on like nothing happened. Be warned: while you are in that state of non-payment limbo, your time and date can be taken up by a paying student! But essentially: class is just on hold. No biggie.

Q: Can you teach me about AI generative Art in UI Designs?

A: Absolutely I can! I consider myself at the forefront of AI Art and Design, especially with Midjourney, and I’d love to geek out about it and teach you the ropes. Hell, I’ll do you one better: here is a big beefy guide on how to get started with Midjourney and AI Generative art today: Link

 

Q: Are you affiliated with any other Bootcamp or Academy?

A: No, mostly because I don’t like some of the practices these “schools” run on vulnerable Talent like yours. These include hiding the costs until an interview, hard sales practices, and aggressive FOMO, to name a few. I just want to pay rent and get all teary-eyed when you tell me how you made it to your first day on your dream job.

 

Q: Do you have a Patreon?

A: I’m working on one. I’ll let you know when it pops up.

 

Q: I honestly don’t know if I can do this.

A: Let’s find out together.
