The Navigating the Now: Preparing for the new normal & Ukie Game Showcase events are taking place tomorrow and Thursday (03rd & 4th June). The below is an outline of the timings for both days.
The running order for Navigating the Now & Ukie Game Showcase is:
The Ukie Hotline has been running for several weeks now, and we thought it was time for a refresh. The Hotline gives all games companies the opportunity to get quick and free advice from industry experts across various disciplines; PR, legal, recruitment, finance, business development and much more.
COVID-19 has changed the way many industries conduct business. So we've brought together a variety of experts to help UK games businesses adapt to those changes and continue to succeed.
Each year Ukie embarks on an annual hub crawl pilgrimage across the UK, educating local people and games businesses on a specific topic, asked for by our members.
Ukie has collaborated with the screen industries via BAFTA and the BFI to create a set of guidelines and principles for people working in all screen sectors at any level to deal with and prevent bullying and harassment.
We would encourage people to adopt and adapt where necessary these principles and guidance.
The next bundle of new games business standard contracts from Ukie and Harbottle & Lewis are here!
This week, we're releasing:
- Contributor Agreement (Voiceover & Similar)
- Director's Loan Agreement
There are now available for download, along with our existing seven other contracts. These should be used as a starting point when drafting your own contracts, which should be adapted for the needs of each unique business.
For this week's Careers Series, Ukie Students spoke to games industry and eSports lawyer Pete Lewin about his career in the games industry from a legal perspective.
