In the gaming industry there are many different spins on the title of “producer” that at first glance may seem incompatible. At FIEA, the goal is to give you broad exposure to all of the different kinds of responsibilities a producer will face in the gaming industry. The primary areas studied include game design, scripting, project management and level design. This means our producers develop a versatile set of useful skills but can also concentrate on areas they are most passionate about.
FIEA provides ample opportunities for project work with other disciplines. Producers can lead sizable teams and learn how to manage complex and lengthy schedules. Our design-oriented students can pitch their ideas and recruit a dozen team members to bring their dream games to life.
Those with technical skills can get their hands dirty with gameplay programming on hefty features. And the artistically inclined can craft intricate and aesthetic level designs. We strive to support projects that allow everyone to exercise their individual talents.
Our curriculum utilizes a lengthy list of software but some of the most common tools for our producers include Unity, C#, Unreal, Flash, Excel, PowerPoint, Perforce, Mind Manager, After Effects and Maya. Ultimately, you will become well-versed in a comprehensive understanding of several production responsibilities in addition to learning how other industry disciplines function.
Note: Although the FIEA curriculum has three main tracks many FIEA students have skills in more than one area. For example, some of our best producers are also great artists or programmers.
As such, the FIEA curriculum is flexible enough to accommodate students with multiple skills. We schedule as few classes at the same time as possible, so students can attend classes outside of their core discipline if they choose.
