Sponsored by The Hollywood Reporter and the Games Developer Conference, the event brought together luminaries from both industries like Barker, the writer-director who unveiled his upcoming video game Jericho.
In his keynote one-on-one discussion with Gina McIntyre, managing editor, features, at The Reporter, Barker expressed his confidence in the future growth of the video game sector.
"This is an area of work where artists of every kind have huge potential," Barker said. "It's a wonderful playground. We have just begun."
He delved into the origins of Jericho, a gory horror piece set in a remote desert outpost. Originally conceived as a novel by Barker, the concept soon took hold in his imagination as a game, which will be released in the fall.
