La semana pasada, entre el 19 y el 21 de febrero, visite Wizard Academy en Austin,TX.
La clases estuvieron increibles, no solo por el contenido, sino por los demas estudiantes que alli estabamos. Entre ellos, el caricaturista Scott McCloud (que trabajo para DC Comics y ahora tiene un proyecto con Marvel), David Freeman, que se dedica a entrenar a los guionistas en Hollywood de peliculas como Shrek 2, Good Will Hunting y The Matrix.
Les copio el texto de Roy H. Williams publicado en el sitio de la Academia del Mago explicando este evento. Por cierto; los libros de Scott, muy recomendables para todos.
Having a great time.
Wish you were here?
That famous communications disassembler, Scott McCloud, was our featured guest lecturer for the Academy's Feb 19-21 session of Advanced Thought Particles (and he was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, see him in the center with the blue shirt behind Corrine Taylor) but when we looked around the room and saw that screenwriter David Freeman had come from Hollywood, women's author Michele Miller had flown in from Phoenix, musical magician Wicho Lopez had growled up from Guatemala and fabric artist Amy Justice had come from Kansas City we decided to pass the microphone around the room.
Race-car pilot J.R. Shaw had words of wisdom,
Procter & Gamble's Mark Huffman shared some secrets and
Dr. Oz Jaxxon awed us as always. Shaun Courbat didn't dissappoint, Eldon White asked interesting questions and Rick and David McGuirt got into the action as a tag-team with elbows flying. John Groom levitated the room and then
Chad Prosser took it to a whole new level.
The academy home office staff slipped in to enjoy the action and we got them into the picture.
It was fun. You should come next time.
2007 is going to be an amazing year. Keep your eyes open for 2 more new classes to be announced by the board of directors.
Details soon. Stay tuned.
