Jake Parker

One thing I took away from Jake's lecture was his writing process.

Iteration is something emphasized in visual development/character design... all that good stuff. I noticed Jake was creating multiple iterations of his ideas IN WRITING. what a novel concept (pun mostly unintentional...) breaking that down, I pulled three main things from that part of the presentation which I thought were being iterated. Comment please if more come to mind:

-Iteration with world creation and ideas revolving around that (also another pun mostly unintentional..)

-Iteration in story and how character's personalities could potentially conflict or harmonize

-And once the world and story were set up, he went into script. General to Specific - a classic design principle. And it's quite possible he went through different iterations of script as well.
