Light refreshments will be served.
During this two-hour workshop, Scott Spinks, Cartoon Artist & Writer, will share his knowledge and experience acquired during the development of his first storybook app, "The Legend of the Bonetree." First, he'll take us through the production timeline, highlighting key areas and bringing to light some surprises. After exploring the production timeline, he'll discuss the features that make Apps unique to any other storytelling medium.
Depending on the size of the group he will lead one of two exercizes:
1) We will break into small groups. Each group will then spend a few minutes creating their own 2-to-3 page app storyboard (using classic stories, which he will supply).
2) We will create a short collection of storyboards on the white board (using a single story).
In either case, the exercise will bring clarity to the number of steps required when developing a full-fledged storybook app.
Following the storyboarding portion, Scott will spend a small amount of time talking about marketing and discussing certain aspects that make App marketing unique.
Finally, there will be an opportunity for Q&A's.
