AFCC 2018 Masterclass | Play and Replay: How to Prepare Your Creations for Multiple Platforms and Adaptations

Play and Replay: How to Prepare Your Creations for Multiple Platforms and Adaptations
By Colin Goh

If you're spending time and effort creating something, why not adapt it for multiple platforms as well? In this masterclass, Colin Goh, co-creator of critically-acclaimed comic series Dim Sum Warriors, reveals how his kung fu-fighting dumplings developed from an app to printed graphic novels and children’s picture books, to and most recently, a stage musical. Participants will take away key skills to map the potential of their own creations and capitalise on available opportunities.

Participants should ideally have a creation in progress and be willing to share basic information for brainstorming and feedback purposes.
