Sun 8/27: Webinar: The Graphic Novel & You w/ Roadmap Top Tier Writer
Sunday, 8/27 @ 5:00pm - 6:30pm PT Hosted by Kris Lippert, Roadmap Top Tier Writer
You keep hearing it: it’s easier to get something made if there is existing IP. But where do you even start? Roadmap’s very own Top Tier Writer Kris Lippert just published his first graphic novel and is here to reveal how you can follow in his footsteps!
Kris will discuss what made him decide to move forward with the graphic novel, the process of getting it made from script to finding the artists (most need more than one!), formatting, working on character design, storyboarding, and also the all important out-of-pocket cost of the project. Kris will discuss how the graphic novel is similar to filmmaking and help you discover a new way to visually realize your story - and end up with a pretty great piece of IP!
This 90-Min. Webinar Will Cover:
The difference between the screenplay and the graphic novel script
How to determine if your project might lend itself well to graphic novel form
Where to find artists and the process of getting started
How to work with the artists themselves to ensure the result matches your vision
How to decide on elements like black and white vs. color pages
Self-publishing vs. Indie publishing
