The New Zealand Centre of Digital Excellence (CODE) is the region’s first purpose-built screen agency focussed solely on games and interactive. CODE is technologically agnostic but focussed on employment and economic outcomes, skills growth and capacity-building. In this talk, CODE’s Operations Manager, Vee Pendergrast, will speak about the origins of the agency, the aims and methodologies as well as early stage results and XR-specific projects.
Vee is a former Managing Director of a small video games studio in Perth specialising in work for hire projects, VR and quirky, humorous First Party Projects. After years of advocacy for the sector she pivoted and implemented the video games stimulus programs at Screenwest, South Australian Film Corporation (in its current form), consulted on Screen Tasmania and has also worked for Screen Queensland and Creative Victoria on various projects. In October 2020, she was hired as Operations Manager at the New Zealand Centre Of Digital Excellence (CODE NZ) and drives their internal grant programs. She enjoys studying history, dark electronic music and being annoyed at things.
