Do It For Real – Games

Some of Confetti's most talented alumni are coming back to talk life after graduation, securing a job in the industry and everything they have learned along the way.


Do It For Real is all about Confetti students getting real industry opportunities whilst studying, to help them get work in the creative industries.

We’ve invited some of Confetti’s top graduates to talk about the industry experience they’ve gained since leaving, and to answer your questions about the creative industries.

Come and listen to the stories of how they got their first break, navigated the tricky moments getting there, and what working life looks like now. Don’t forget to come armed with lots of questions to ask them!

Hear what last year’s panellist had to say!

George Patchett

George studied the FdSc in Music Technology at Confetti in 2016. During this time at Confetti, he mixed some of the pre-recorded Notts TV shows, recorded and edited the NUSIC podcast and helped to record an orchestra.

Since graduating, he has continued to mix live broadcasts for Notts TV and was offered a full-time position as a sound engineer at ESL UK where he then spent the next three-and-a-half years honing his broadcast engineering skills in the new world of esports.

It’s with these sharpened skills he took to Promod Esports to step it up again, this time managing and planning for every aspect of broadcast production. His favourite challenge at the minute is keeping broadcasts and studios functional in a locked-down world.
