Function Before Form: The long and short of storytelling

Wednesday, February 10, 2016
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

With the evolution of multiple platforms and the proliferation of  transmedia entertainment,  how are content creators approaching storytelling and what specific challenges face writers and producers as they tackle long-form, episodic and short-form scripts?  How do the key ingredients for effective storytelling translate from one format to another?  What are some of the opportunities (and pitfalls) inherent in writing for an audience that is growing up on “snackable” content?  Join a panel of seasoned industry experts as they explore how traditional storytelling is being embraced, redefined and sometimes abandoned altogether.
