Trash, Transmedia, & Chaterati
What would you do if two of the world’s leading screenwriters and directors “discover” your manuscript – and want to film it? And how do you plan to make a living out of our great big digital future? Our two brilliant guests tonight can help on both counts – because they’re none other than Andy Mulligan, bestselling & award-winning author of TRASH – and Dr. Christy Dena, the one-woman transmedia phenomenon (she literally wrote the book on it).
Andy’s first two books – Ribblestrop and Return to Ribblestrop – won massive acclaim. But his third book, Trash, has set the film world alight: it’s being adapted by Richard Curtis (Blackadder, Vicar Of Dibley, Four Weddings And A Funeral, Notting Hill) with Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader) to direct. How did it happen – and how has it changed him? You’ll find Andy frank and very revealing – and utterly fascinating.
Now be honest. Do you really understand what “transmedia” is? Well it’s OK to admit you don’t, because Christy explains everything you ought to know about this emerging area of growing importance to writers and creative people everywhere. Christy travels the world lecturing in this subject – tonight, all her accumulated expertise is yours for free!
