Callum Underwood | The path from prototype to funding
Director, Robot Teddy / Consultant for Oculus, SUPERHOT, Raw Fury, and others)
Callum, founder of Robot Teddy, cares deeply about developer success, and focuses on scouting and business development. He is on the board of BAFTA Games, and received a 30 under 30 award for his work within the games industry. He has a long history of supporting indie developers at companies such as Oculus and Intel, and spends the majority of his time now running his consultancy, working with clients such as SUPERHOT, Raw Fury, and Oculus. Callum represents multiple sources of funding for developers, and has a unique insight on the process.
Callum begun his masterclass "The path from prototype to funding - a deep look into the various funding models available, and how not to get caught out" with insights into the mind of a publishing scout, and how they generally look for games to sign. Following this, he dove into specific funding models that most of the publishers and funds employ, and what these can mean for you as a developer once your game launches. This wasn't a pitch-training session, but aimed to give valuable information and context on how the industry operates behind closed doors.
