Robin Hunicke on How to be a Great Producer

Posted by on October 5th, 2010

gamesauce recently sat down with our producer extraordinaire, Robin Hunicke, and discussed what it’s like working with emotions, and how she strives to be great at what she does. (We think she is. Pretty great, that is.)

“‘Just try to make everyone’s experience positive and creative and without friction,’ she suggests. ‘Obviously, one person can’t do that. A producer alone can’t make the working experience smooth and efficient and joyous, but one should try as best as they can. A lot of that is having conversations about areas where skills can be developed, how behaviors can be improved or just giving someone positive feedback about doing something really fantastic.’”

“‘What I strive to do every day, is to leave the office having made a measurable impact on everyone’s work experience. That could be anything from organizing a meeting about a feature I think needs help to ordering a whiteboard and helping someone hang it up so their ideas can be expressed more freely than being scrawled on little pieces of paper.’”

very nice… she sounds very bright! and she is also very cute :O …but if Robin is producing, what is Kelly doing? this is the first TGC game that doesn’t have Kelly as a producer, right?

I’ve moved into more business & strategic development, and continue to work on growing PR & marketing opportunities for the company. Robin is very bright, and having her “man” the helm of the production ship has been awesome!
