In part one, Claire Keane (Disney, Penguin Random House), Jenn Ely (Laika, Google, Dreamworks), Brian McDonald (Pixar, Disney, Industrial Light & Magic) and I announced that we will be teaching at The Story Design Conference from September 28th – October 2nd 2016*, in the awe-inspiring city of Rome, Italy!
(*Note: The conference was moved from May to September.)
In celebration of our announcement, we decided to have a conversation about some of the big ideas we’ll be discussing during the conference.
What followed was a riveting discussion about art, fear and finding your calling…
In this second part you’ll hear us talk about:
- How to convey emotion through your work.
- What makes student work stand out.
- How to keep going when you feel defeated.
- What we’re looking forward to at The Story Design Conference!

Listen To Part 2:
New Dates For The Story Design Conference!
We were planning to hold the conference in the Spring, but I failed to realize what so many potential attendees communicated to us immediately following the announcement: You need more than two months to make international travel plans.
…so we moved the dates!
This year’s conference will now take place in the fall: September 28th – October 2nd 2016 to be exact.
It will still take place in the awe-inspiringly beautiful city of Rome, Italy. The guests and curriculum (which focuses on Color, Composition and Character Development) are still the same.
