Crysis Live! at GameCity, 29-3oth October
More and more exciting events are being annouced as part of GameCity, taking place in venues right across the city this October half-term.  This is an interesting collaboration between Crytek UK, the German-owned company whose UK headquarters are in Nottingham from the buy-out of former legendary games developers Free Radical Design (of Timesplitters fame).  For two full days, the Festival arena in the Market Square will be transformed into a live, full-scale recreation of the Crysis universe.  The game pitches each player inside a real-life tropical jungle, complete with exotic flora and fauna, where they’ll need to use the famous ‘Nanosuit’ to avoid deadly enemy soldiers and players can become invisible!

Paul Smith becomes EM Media patron
Nottingham’s godfather of fashion Paul Smith has become a patron of regional screen agency EM Media.  Paul loves film, having worked on a set of T-Shirts for the film Control, filmed in Nottingham and funded by the agency. According to @suzybelle from the agency, “We’re aiming to jointly host events, make use of his kudos to attract others and keep the region’s profile high.”  Can’t wait for the first event!  Surely it’s got to be in the Paul Smith auditorium at Broadway cinema with the designer’s trademark  stripe seats.
