"Make things, make as much as you can, that's how you learn in the games industry. It's a practical craft."
From working on the audio of Grand Theft Auto to starting his own company, Colin Anderson, Managing Director and co-founder of digital toy company Denki, shares what he's learnt from working in the games industry.
Part of BAFTA Scotland's Career Close-Up programme supported by Skills Development Scotland.

P-BAM is the iTunes "Best New Comedy Podcast of 2011" from award winning sketch group, Pappy's. It's a heady cocktail of impromptu conversation and scripted comedy. The three members of Pappy's -Ben, Matthew and Tom- record themselves in conversation and then write short sketches around the topics that crop up. At the end of the day these sketches are mixed back into the chat itself. It might be easier to imagine that the conversation is a bowl of mashed potato and the sketches are the bangers that are cooked afterwards and placed in the mash. Or it might not. Enjoy!
P-BAM is improvised, written and performed by Ben Clark, Matthew Crosby and Thomas Parry. It's produced by Colin Anderson.
