Kate Breeze has a BSc in Computer Science & Geography from Keele University and also took Japanese for three years during her University degree.
She went from an undergraduate project on realism in computer games to working with us in consultancy for the film industry.
During her project, she identified a key issue in perception of realism, which drew on schema theory, and which had significant practical implications for both film and game design.
She also identified significant issues in choice of appropriate elicitation methods for investigating user and viewer perceptions of media products, including games and film.
