Привет, на связи Александр Марс - основатель студии AK Audio.
Меня часто спрашивают как я нахожу игровые проекты для написания музыки и звуков. А после того, как я анонсировал, что работаю саунд дизайнером в компании Wargaming, как я туда попал. Поэтому я расскажу о том, как прошел путь от мобильных инди игр к очень крупному ААА-проекту.
Лет 8-10 назад я начал задумываться об использовании оркестровых инструментов в своем продакшне. Все это было больше на каком-то интуитивном или даже подсознательном...
