Our activities and workshops

All workshops and activities will be held on our Perth campus. Each day offers a different selection of workshops, designed to showcase the variety of ways you can get involved in esports and gaming industries.

Our workshops and activities include:

Games Art & Design

It’s time to get creative with some of Murdoch’s most talented Games Art & Design student ambassadors, who in this workshop will show you how to create assets used in the video games you know and love.

Make a Game

Almost anyone who has ever spent time playing video games has had the idea cross their mind to try and make a game at some point or another. Perhaps this goal is more obtainable than you think. Try out some of Murdoch Universities’ professional software and equipment and surprise yourself with what you can do.

Video Editing

YouTube is one of the best places on the internet to find quality content. This workshop will show you how you can make some of the coolest, most engaging, or funniest content for yourself by teaching you the basics of video editing.

Photoshop

Photoshop is one of the most common media tools out there. Used for YouTube thumbnails, Twitch Streaming Schedules, and downright hilarious images, learning to use this software will be an incredible weapon in your arsenal.

Streamlabs

Learn the ins and outs of Streamlabs, the most popular software for livestreaming to Twitch and YouTube. Learn to configure your stream, set up gifs and sounds that play when people follow or donate, and become like your favourite Twitch streamer!

Grow and Conquer

Playing video games in the esports industry can be an overwhelming experience on occasion. You may not always see it on-screen, but the best players will often learn to grow and conquer the many adversities of the industry before they find success. Now, you will learn to grow and conquer too.

Create your own tournament

The end of the Esports and Gaming Camp is a thrilling gaming tournament. The specifics and logistics of this tournament are determined by the you and the other participants, with the assistance of coaches who are experienced in tournament organisation. You will create, pitch, host, play in and even cast your own tournament on the final day of the camp.

 

Camp leaders

These workshops will be run by industry leading professionals who have created their own leagues, competitive level athletes who have played on international stages like E3 in front of tens of thousands of spectators, and people who have built entire careers around the games industry. If you want to be the best, you have to learn from the best.
