Christopher Federici – Game Production Alum
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to work for a gaming company? How about a world-famous gaming company? Christopher Federici is a game production alumnus of The LA Film School, and he’s been leading a successful career in game production since the moment he graduated in 2012 – in fact, Federici landed his first position as a game programmer before even leaving school. At our film school Game Fair in 2012, Federici was noticed by a producer from Jet Morgan Games, and after seeing what Federici could do, the producer hired him on the spot. Since then, Federici’s career in the gaming industry has taken off.
When Federici began working with Jet Morgan Games, he was hired on as a game programmer, and he quickly became an invaluable resource to his own company as well as his fellow alumni of the film school. As the web and iOS gaming company took off, Federici was asked to find, interview and hire new game programmers, and he looked with his alma mater for talented programmers like himself. Within three months, Federici moved on to become a game producer for the company, which involved managing the development of web and mobile games and interactive media for clients like Disney, Activision, and Mattel.
Moving up in Game Development
After spending almost two years working with Jet Morgan Games, Federici was picked up by a gaming company you might have heard of – Riot Games, the developers and producers of League of Legends. The international gaming company has brought Federici success as a game developer, beginning as a technical coordinator with the company in 2013, and quickly moving on to become an associate development manager.
