Braving the Industry Podcast



Braving the Industry


The Braving the Industry Podcast aims to provide perspective on the AAA industry from the viewpoint of two artists who are just starting their journey's.

Currently, the majority of industry discussion, whether it be through talks, tutorials, or podcasts, typically comes from industry members with a large amount of experience and skill. This professional gap can make it difficult to connect and picture how they got to where they are. You never hear about the journey. This disconnect and uncertainty made it difficult for Eirik and I to determine if we were on the right paths. As a result, we made it our mission to fill this "gap" in order to determine our own routes to success and to help others find their own. We aim to provide others with our experiences, failures and triumphs to fill this void, and help you find your own way in the Industry.

This podcast is a collaborative project between Armand Mech and Eirik Murbræch.

We are glad that you have chosen to Brave the Industry too.
