Interview: AIAS President Martin Rae Talks Awards Shows, The Academy, and the Industry

on April 7, 2012 8:25 PM

We had a chance to catch up with Martin Rae, the president of the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) organization. During our interview we asked the question everyone’s been wanting to ask but was too scared to: what’s the AIAS all about? I mean, we’re all familiar with the DICE Summit, but what is it that makes the Academy different — especially  in way that they handle their award  show. Martin also takes a few moments to share his thoughts on the current state of the industry and the impact that social media has made. Check out the full interview below.

Note: In the video, below Martin’s name is the incorrect twitter info. The AIAS official twitter account is @AcademyIAS.
