More applicants than ever for Leamington studio's experience days

Blitz has revealed that its Open Days are attracting record interest, with more applicants this year than ever before.

The days give students and lecturers a chance to tour the Blitz studio, learn about career paths available, talk with staff and obtain advice on applications and demo reel preparation.

Kim Blake, education liaison officer at Blitz Games said:  “The Open Days have definitely struck a chord with lecturers and students from all corners of the UK.  We’re delighted with the response.

"The Open Days are providing a  valuable insight into how games are made and how a studio operates.  This is information that can’t be obtained any other way.  Blitz is determined and committed to working with the educational institutions to continually improve the courses on offer and thereby the quality of graduates entering our fast growing industry.”
