Why I’m studying… Game Design and Production at UniSA

Third-year student Emily Brown talks about her passion for 3D modelling, her pathway to study and advice for other students.

Based in Adelaide, Emily Brown is completing her third year of university in the Bachelor of Creative Industries at the University of South Australia, majoring in Game Design and Production and minoring in Animation and Visual Effects as well as Cultural Studies.

Despite having little exposure to game design as an option in school, a work experience stint at the Adelaide campus of AIE in Year 10 lit her up and sent her on a path that led to UniSA. Throughout her three years of study, Emily has made multiple small games solo, as well as in small teams, 3D modelled props and character models (both from existing games as well as original designs), and built 3D environments used for games and films.
