Transmedia Storytelling with Superheroes

May 3, 2021

A live discussion with MoMI Education’s Moving Image Studio, featuring game scholar Naomi Clark, game designer Sharang Biswas, assistant curator of film Edo Choi, and Gus Coulakas of Silver Age Comics. Featuring conversation about the expanded universe of superhero tropes and characters that span across history, cinema, television, comic books, and video games. This panel is connected to our Game Play series, live role play games featuring interactive theater and improvisation, hosted virtually by MoMI Education’s Game Artist in Residence, Sharang Biswas. The concept art featured in this post is from an RPG game MoMI will host on Saturday, June 5th and 21st: MASKS A New Generation of Heroes by Magpie Games.


Discussions with creative figures in film, television, and digital media—formerly the Pinewood Dialogues—made possible with a generous grant from the Pannonia Foundation.
