Context 19 will feature anime and anime discussion panels; anime writer/director/voice actor Tristan MacAvery (Gendo Ikari in the Evangelion series) will be one of the guests of honor at the convention.
If you want to write anime, please join award-winning screenwriter and instructor Diana Botsford for an intensive 3-hour introduction into the world of writing for animation, television and film. Gain an understanding of how the script process affects the development of plot, character development and theme. Through discussion, viewing and hands-on exercises, learn how to use the visual (and aural!) medium to tell your story beyond the printed page.
Ms. Botsford has directed over 1,000 hours of animation, written for Star Trek, was visual effects director for From Dusk Till Dawn, and has produced a variety of other television series and movies.
The workshop will be held on October 7, 2006 in Columbus, OH.
