No matter if you are directly involved in the entertainment industry or you are just a curious mind doing whatever else, Brent is a truly motivational and engaging speaker to watch. His opening talk at Gamelab Barcelona was one of the most remarkable moments in the show, and reminded hundreds of digital creators of something as important as usually forgotten: the only limit for fun is your imagination.
