Panel - Creating a Graphic Novel Hollywood Will Buy

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Start Time: 03:30PM    End Time: 04:30PM

The panel will feature a dynamic group of comic book professionals including Ted Adams (CEO of IDW Publishing), Matt Hawkins (President of Top Cow), David Wohl (Editor-In-Chief of Radical Comics), and Martin Shapiro (President of Night Owl Productions).

Graphic novels are red hot in Hollywood now. With its combination of words and visuals in one attractive package, a comic book can be a great sales tool when pitching your project to studios. In this class, industry professionals will teach you how to make a high quality graphic novel that will attract the attention of movie producers.

Using a creator-owned comic book as a case study, the panelists will discuss the tools and skills necessary to create strong, cinematic artwork that brings the script to life. They will also discuss the potential pitfalls faced by beginners that can severely hamper a project.
