Brian Wood Memorial Game Design Internship announced

by Rob Lewis

The Brian Wood Memorial Game Design Internship was announced this past weekend at Game Design Expo, hosted by the Game Design program at Vancouver Film School (VFS).

Relic Entertainment established the internship to commemorate the work of Brian Wood. The longtime Relic employee and Lead Game Designer on the Company of Heroes franchise was killed in a tragic traffic accident in September 2010, leaving behind his wife, Erin Wood, and his then-unborn child, both of whom survived.

To honour and continue Brian’s contribution to the international game community, as well as in memory of his passions in life, Relic will be awarding a four-month internship to three graduating VFS Game Design students each year who exhibit a similar passion and excellence in game design.

“Relic Entertainment has worked with VFS for a number of years and in the past has had employees who taught classes as part of the Game Design curriculum,” says Dowdeswell. “Continuing this partnership in a meaningful and long lasting effort by introducing the Brian Wood Memorial Game Design Internship was a natural fit for all concerned.”

The inaugural internship will be awarded in February 2011, and the chosen VFS Game Design graduate will have the opportunity to work directly with a team at Relic.
