TR!CKSTER Symposium 7
Sunday, 7/24/11, 1:00PM to 3:00 PM
WORLD-BUILDING and the IMMACULATE REALITY
Featuring film and comics storytellers GREG RUCKA, IVAN BRANDON, B. CLAY MOORE, TED MATHOT, DEREK THOMPSON, and more TBA
Fiction is a limitless landscape, ripe for painting with the varied colors of the imagination. Fiction is the realm of the impossible made possible. To do this effectively, writers, artists and storytellers present themselves with questions requiring unique answers. Not only must they know the lives and environments and politics of their central players, they must know what lurks behind the curtain, what lies beyond the horizon, and what awaits just off-screen. Even the most fantastical and surreal worlds must still be grounded in a reality that the audience can start from, can find footing on, and can then move from the familiar safety ofinto the new worlds of story. This workshop will also dive into creating the worlds of character interaction: how player dynamics must be constructed effectively. In this, we'll analyze the roles of archetypes including the "trickster" and how they effect the stories of their worlds.
PERFECT FOR: writers and storytellers of all types, in film, prose, comics, and beyond, looking to hone their writing skills through intense discussion and analysis with top working storytellers.
