If you’ve been wondering when we’ll see this year’s “White Paper” from Milton Griepp, with year-over-year statistics and trends, it will be presented at the ICv2 Comics, Media, and Digital Conference 2011 which will be held on the Wednesday before the San Diego Comic-Con. Griepp holds similar events at various shows around the calendar. Here’s some PR; these one-day events are traditionally an information packed professional day.
Digital comics and the growing transmedia uses of comics in film, TV, and videogames are transforming the industry into something very different from what has gone before. To navigate this rapidly changing environment, ICv2 is bringing together the best minds in all three parts of the industry—comics, media, and digital—to discuss where the comics medium is, where it’s going, and how to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities presented by this period of rapid change.
Planned sessions (one additional session will be added soon) at the ICv2 Comics, Media, and Digital Conference include:
The ICv2 White Paper
This ICv2 White Paper will present a comprehensive look at the comics market and the trends in comics, their media uses, and digital distribution.
Selling Comics in Hollywood—State of the Market
Hollywood agents and managers discuss the market for comic properties in film, TV, and videogames—what types of projects are getting made, and why.
Digital Comics and Transmedia Properties
Panelists from the comic and digital worlds discuss how awareness from other media is creating unique opportunities to sell digital comics to new customers, and how digital comics are being used to enhance interest and revenues in other media.
