How to navigate the ever escalating, exponentially occurring media platforms and maybe take over the world.
The world is in the grip of media ADHD and to hold the interest of readers and fans creators must be adept at mixing and interconnecting their stories via a number of mediums. The potential for Imagination is running wild and all that governs it is the creator’s ability to successfully move between and connect storytelling mediums. Whether writing a successful trilogy of prose novels like The Looking Glass Wars or just a hugely popular tweet – the goal is to expand established material or a fresh idea across multiple interconnected mediums in order to reach the largest number of people and then as the ultimate hat trick – unite their enthusiasm. How you coordinate the potential has become almost as creative as the work you do as a writer or artist. Frank will talk about the challenges and discoveries of how his ongoing Hatter M graphic novel series, The Looking Glass Wars prose trilogy and recently, his creative use of Kickstarter to run not only a successful campaign for Hatter M but also as an entertainment platform, have come together across the internet to reach another level of storytelling.
