Jim Woo, Co-Founder of The Comic Machine


An Introduction to Rich Media comics
  and The Comic Machine
Digital comics have evolved in the past few years. In this hour long presentation we explore the evolution of digital comics and the various platforms in use today.
There will also be an overview of a developing platform called The Comic Machine which is essentially the YouTube of comics.
This online platform allows anybody to create a rich media comic with online motion editing tools, generate the text with an advanced text engine, and also publish it to a gallery and social media, providing the opportunity to develop a following.
 
Jim Woo will demo the beta version of the online software.
Audience members with laptops are welcome to follow along.
You will need the Google Chrome browser installed.
For interested attendees, we will hand out user accounts and passwords.
