Comic-Con Panel Explores Creative Process

JULY 22, 2010: LAIKA President and CEO Travis Knight sat on a panel at Comic-Con called “The Spark of Imagination” on Thursday, July 22. The panel offered a peek inside the minds of leading authors and filmmakers and explored how imagination informs the creative process. Knight talked about LAIKA’s commitment to bold subject matter; New York Times-bestselling children’s author Tony DiTerlizzi (The Spiderwick Chronicles) detailed the precedent-setting augmented reality used in his new Simon & Schuster novel The Search for Wondla; artist/writer Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy) pinpointed how and where inspiration strikes; director John Stevenson (Kung Fu Panda) explored how creativity is enhanced by artistic collaboration in movie-making; and graphic novelist Doug TenNapel (Earthworm Jim) described exactly how a blank page comes to be inhabited with his compelling imagery.

The panel was moderated by Geoff Boucher, reporter and HeroComplex.com blogger with The Los Angeles Times. More information here.
