Andy Johnson

Head of Production: 30yr Industry Veteran

My passion outside of video games is knowledge sharing, I am the creator of an amazingly successful Game Production course and am a regular guest speaker at events and colleges.

I understand that Videos Games is a hyper competitive, hit-driven industry, with massive competition for every role so you need to stand out!

I've built successful teams at major game studios - Disney, Pokémon, Sega, THQ, King, Digital Extremes, Microsoft, WB Games, Eidos - so I know what is takes to be a top candidate.
