UPDATED: Tue, Mar 26, 04:09PM
Learn the secrets to using part-time collaboration to achieve full-time results! No matter which industry (comics, illustration, movies, design, animation, costuming/cosplay), “breaking in” has never been more apt a term than in today's media, and it is a full-time job, especially if you have only part-time hours to accomplish it. Hear Topher Davila (art director, GeekdomWear.com and co-creator/co-producer, We're Always Like This), Sean Glumace (digital arts instructor at Golden West College and Wordpress expert), Kevin Flessing (co-writer, We're Always Like This), Mario Martinez (co-creator, TomatoTV.net), Renah Wolzinger (department chair, Digital Media, Digital Arts and Design, Golden West College), Aleister Gilgrim (Creative Director, ICS Mobile), Heather Joseph-Witham Ph.D. (Mythbusters and various TV shows) and Ron Coleman (molecular geneticist and writer) talk about how they successfully juggle time between the creative and business sides while being involved in goal-oriented groups. They'll discuss the process, pitfalls, and potential of part-time collaboration from their experiences in illustration, writing, design, animation, and live-action filming, from a variety of levels of experience in administration and sizes of organizations. Content will be a mix of speaking, questions, and short interactive applications in which the audience can directly apply the topics covered. Whether you're a hobbyist or looking to go pro, if you struggle with deadlines, need help finding collaborators, want to know how to work with a team without mortally wounding each other, or simply want to know how to get your foot in the door, this panel is for you.
