Eurogamer's Aoife Wilson on life in video

A premiere pro.

Aoife is our queen of video. She helped imagine what video could be for Eurogamer eight years ago, and she's worked to define it ever since. If you've ever seen a Eurogamer video on YouTube, there's a whopping great chance she's in it.

But what is life really like in that role, in the public eye? To see her and the video team surrounded by fans at shows like EGX makes it seem like a dream job. But is it? What about the responsibility that comes with people looking up to you? What about the pressure of being in the public eye? There are some misconceptions about the role, about the glamour of it, and about the amount of work done behind the scenes.

In Episode 9 of The Eurogamer Podcast [since renamed One-to-one], now available to everyone - either here on on all major podcast platforms - Aoife lets us in on the reality, as she shares her story of how she got here and what she's learned along the way.
