Gaming genius to give top tips

Students at West Nottinghamshire College will be meeting the producer and creator of the award-winning LEGO adventure video games this week.

Jonathan Smith, head of production at UK-based software development company, TT Games Publishing, is set to deliver masterclass sessions to computer science learners at the college’s Derby Road campus on Thursday (7 March).

Jonathan is the creator of many popular video games such as LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Batman and LEGO Finding Nemo.

Learners will join the gaming guru for a computer gaming activity and take part in a question and answer session to discover his success with the company which has grown to include the games development studio TT Fusion and television production company TT Animation.

Students will discover more about Jonathan’s success with the company, which was established in 2005 following a merger between publisher Giant Interactive and developer Traveller’s Tales.

Media students will also put their interviewing and recording skills to the test as they interview Jonathan for their weekly television programme which is streamed through their own television channel – Vision Create TV.
