I spoke to an audio director of a game company.. here is a few of the things he told me:
- he gets about 2 emails a week with people who want to do music for games (from big names aswell, he mentioned Jepser Kyd from the Hitman series)
- 9 out of 10 have no chance what so ever
- 3 a year might have industry experience
I guess that kind of confirms what most people already know. Its a TOUGH business to get into - but gets easier once inside.
Just thought I would share the info - might interest someone aspiring to get in
