It’s a Script! It’s a Comic! It’s a TV Show! (60 minutes)
In this panel, writer Jaimie Engle discusses her journey adapting a short story to a television script and a comic book with her illustrator KOOLasHECK. Participants will enjoy an engaging conversation about the process, the script, the adaptation process, and the collaboration needed to create a comic, along with the benefit of writing for tv and comics with one script.
It’s a Script! It’s a Comic! It’s a TV show! If you’ve got a story to tell, you don’t want to miss this panel on how to turn your story into a script you can sell to a comic publisher AND Hollywood. We did it. Why can’t you?
Jaimie Engle is an award-winning writer. Her comic The 9 Circles is adapted from her Amazon #1 New Release short story collection and also adapted into a tv pilot, currently in development with the producer of “The Stand” and “Thinner” to name a few. The script is a quarterfinalist, semifinalist, and hit #6 on Coverfly’s coveted The Red List. She has spoken to tens of thousands of fans at dozens of cons.
KOOLasHECK (seriously, that’s his name…ask him about it) is a Sketchcard Illustrator for Upper Deck/Marvel Comics. He’s also a regular illustrator, writer, and executive producer on multiple comics.
