We are extremely pleased to announce that Maureen McHugh will be delivering the keynote this year. Maureen is an award winning science fiction writer who, for almost a decade now, has been exploring what it means to write in a transmedia environment. She has been a writer and/or managing editor behind some of the most popular and critically claimed experiences to date including I Love Bees (Halo 2), Why So Serious (The Dark Knight), and Year Zero (the Nine Inch Nails album of the same name).
Credits aside, Maureen has an incredible grasp how to write and deliver a story across mediums in a way that draws people in. She understands how to work with designers, producers, and technology in a way that brings a story to life for the audience without the technology or complexity becoming a barrier. It’s a tricky balancing act and one that few can do as well.
We hope that you will join us on Friday, July 16 for what is sure to be an evening filled with insights & fun stories from the trenches.
