PAX East 2011 – The Making of an Announcement – Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

You may have watched the “Uncharted 3 – The Reveal” pieces on YouTube or the PSN Store recently – and if you haven’t, for shame and go watch them now! The two-part video series barely scratches the surface on the immense effort and hectic pace of activities at a video game developer once an announcement date is set and the studio pulls together to put together a polished set of assets. Join Naughty Dog (developers of the UNCHARTED games) and 2 Player Productions (you may know them from PATV Season 1 and the Infamous and Uncharted web docs) as we delve deeper into the events leading up to the announcement of UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception. The Dogs will talk about the specific challenges in producing a highly polished gameplay demo, a completed trailer, along with screenshots and other announcement assets, within a short timeframe. During that time, 2 Player Productions were the first outsiders we’ve ever invited to document this process firsthand – and they will join the Dogs to let you know what it was like to witness the chaos and excitement for themselves – and we’ve made them promise to bring some never-before-seen footage from the cutting room floor. We’ll be sure to leave some time to answer questions at the end.

Panelists: Arne Meyer [Director of Communications, Website], Taylor Kurosaki [Studio Narrative Director, Website], Paul Levering [Producer, IMDB], Paul Owens [Director, IMDB], Asif Siddiky [Cinematographer, IMDB]
