    Alex Avelino will host the Season 4 premiere of LiveVibe TV, “Opening Minds: People Who Make Video Games.”

    LiveVibe TV is a lively talk-show performance event that features people from the UF community engaged in innovative and interesting interdisciplinary work. Combined with live music and immersive theatrical projections, the LVTV format encourages the audience to participate in asking questions of the guests.

    “LiveVibe is the perfect union of the arts and the digital realm for a live studio audience,” Avelino said. “I’m anticipating great conversation with experienced video game designers and producers, as well as the next generation of video game professionals.”

    The guests on “Opening Minds: People Who Make Video Games” are involved in designing, coding and producing serious and educational video games. Veteran video game producer Marko Suvajdzic is the owner of Organic to Digital (O2D), an award-winning game production company with offices in Europe and the USA. Next-generation game programmer and developer Samuel Sewall will discuss what happens “under the hood” in video games, and also how a recent project was successfully Kickstarter-funded. The dynamic design team of Diana Reichenbach and Hyuk Jang will take the audience behind the scenes in the artistic evolution of their interactive game that was recently installed at the South Florida Science Center: “Exploring Ancient Egypt.”

    Limited complimentary seating is available. To reserve a seat in the live studio audience for the LVTV Season 4 Opener, please send an email request ASAP with name and number in your party to:
