FETC’s pre-conference last year was a grand slam, and since then Karen and I have been bouncing ideas off each other for this year’s pre-conference. (Okay, I did a lot of bouncing and Karen listened. She’s a fantastic listener and she’s great at pinning me down. Hard job.)Then it came to us. We’re looking to do something special for the DEN Stars, why not take them to the stars? We’re all about the magic of digital media, why not take them behind the scenes of how that magic is created?
On January 24th, 2007, the DEN Stars will be hanging out at Universal Studios. Rise and shine because we start rolling at 7:30 am and go straight through until 3 pm! We start with a behind the scenes look at the movie and ride magic. Just how do they get the Mummy to terrify you? What does a park need to know about setting? How can you recreate a tornado that will rock your world? Can make-up really turn the most beautiful creature into a thing of horror? Then we will work on our own media productions, with the park at hand for any last minute footage. Attendees will have a choice between Digital Storytelling or Enhanced Podcasting for their final projects. All work will be done in the park.
