Besides being a young and passionate industry professional -- most recently I was an associate producer on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier at Ubisoft Paris -- I hold a Master of Science in corporate finance, with a heavy focus on project finance.
Not only do I love making games but ever since I interned as an equity analyst at a fund management company and was tasked with analyzing the game industry to find promising investments, I have been passionate about the industry itself. I then truly realized how dynamic, ever-changing and ever-intellectually challenging it is, and I've been hooked since, following its developments very closely.
I have already made significant research in the field of project finance in the game industry: I wrote my Master's Thesis on 10Tacle's failed attempt to apply the film project finance structure to the video game industry. This paper is going a step further into the analysis of film project finance in games, ambitioning to draw conclusions for the whole industry.
