Sophie is a Technical Artist specialised in using Houdini for game projects. She is very interested in creating procedural tools that supercharge the art (and sometimes design) teams. She has worked on projects of various scales and team sizes, from independent R&D to AAA game projects. Next to this, Sophie is a Women In Games Ambassador and she is passionate about increasing diversity in the industry. Because of this, she has been on numerous panels and has given a variety of lectures at schools and universities.
Houdini has quickly become the shiny new tool in game development with studios ranging from indie to AAA keen to benefit from the prospect of generating an immense amount of content in shorter time periods. The internet is filled with countless examples of exciting projects showing off the end results, but it can be hard for non-Houdini users to understand the possibilities and limitations of Houdini tools. Having a better overview of this will be helpful in understanding where Houdini can improve workflows for your team while avoiding common pitfalls which often result in painful and costly work farther down the development pipeline. In this talk you will learn where Houdini can be used in game projects, how to effectively communicate about potential tools and you’ll learn some helpful tips for building your own tools.

Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.
Mike Bithell Games
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.
Dr Mata Haggis-Burridge
People should come to Develop because it’s where the UK games industry meets.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.
Ian Livingstone, CBE
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
