“Futurizing the News”
Admit it: You’re in a rut. You need inspiration. Innovation. Smart new ways to attract eyeballs and deliver data. And that’s why Tim Harrower’s workshops have been popular for years now. He was so well-received at the first MMC, we had to bring him back! Want to rethink the way you tell stories? Improve your teamwork? Reinvent the way you design pages? We’ll show you how.This crash-course will help every college newswriter.

2:30-3:45p — We’re Here: Blacks, Latinos and Other People of Color In Speculative Fiction
Join Speculative Fiction authors and artists for a lively discussion on the long ignored stories of the Black and Latino experience, expressed through the Science Fiction and Fantasy literature, films and comic books. These creators will show how Blacks and Latinos have transformed these forms despite being historically excluded from them. They will speak on their own works and how people of color’s voices in speculative fiction provide a different lens of how to look at the world, in addition to how science fiction’s big ideas reveal deeper thoughts about humanity.
Balogun Ojetade, Steamfunk and New Pulp novelist, Director/Producer

2:30-3:45p – Get the Look in Your Head on the Screen: Art and Design in Film
Filmmakers: it’s not just about lighting and acting, there’s logistics! And Raymond Carr knows about crafting an aesthetic environment: he’s an art director, production designer and even a puppeteer. He’s translated visuals for theater, TV shows, and films. In this interactive panel, he’ll teach you how to be creative in set design, how to make the vision on screen match the one in your head…and you might even get to see a puppet or two!
