“I Hope to Become a Film Director One Day.” Student Portrait 3: Tom McGill

Tom has a deep connection and insight into the world of video games, "I don't really see video games as strictly entertainment rather as an emerging platform of social expression." He plays them for not only as a source of escape but to become emerged into the story and its characters. He says that video games have provided another perspective into storytelling "that films or music often leave out". Tom aspires to become a film director one day and this is perhaps why he prefers the hands on approach of video games rather than being a passive audience member.
