August Luncheon: Story and Character: A Digital Animator’s Perspective


Thursday, August 6, 2015 from 12:00 PM1:30 PM 
Harbor Breeze • 176 Patriots Point Road • Mount Pleasant, SC 29464

Join the Charleston AMA for the August Signature Luncheon featuring Bryan Ransom of Moondog Animation.  Story and character are the foundational elements of entertainment. With an effective story and character, we can influence the audience, but what are the most important things to focus on when building characters and story?

Bryan will share the secrets of how story and character drive digital animation:

  • How does the story drive the visuals and vice versa?
  • How does a strong character develop into a brand?
  • How do we develop story and character that move people to action?

About Bryan:

After graduating from North Carolina State University with a degree in engineering, Bryan began his career as a process engineer in charge of multi-million dollar projects. In 2007 he moved into audiovisual production in Paris, France. There, Bryan worked as producer for the development of over 15 different products – from TV series to feature length films.

Along with partners JM Khayat and Ben Davis, Bryan launched Moondog Animation in 2013 in Charleston.
