SDCC 2011 Saturday Programming with Transformers + IDW Exclusives

{mosimage}Saturday, July 23, is a light on Transformers at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 but there are still folks that have worked on the franchise that might interest some fans to attend the panels.

10:30-11:30 The Return of Action-Adventure Animation— The pendulum of audience and network taste in animation regularly swings between wacky comedy, comedy-adventure, and true action-adventure. And that's where it seems to be heading right now. The Writers Guild of America's Animation Writers Caucus returns to Comic-Con with a panel of animation writers and studio and network executives discussing whether it's really changing and what to expect. Panelists include moderator Craig Miller (Beast Wars, G.I. Joe), Stan Berkowitz (The 99, Justice League), Steven Melching (Transformers Prime, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Warner Bros. Animation's director of series and shorts Jeff Prezenkowski (Thundercats, Green Lantern), and others. Room 8

3:00-4:00 The Write Stuff III: Writing for Genre Television and Beyond— Meet the writers and producers who make genre entertainment what it is today, and get an incredible insider look from the scribes behind some of today's hottest genre shows as they share their candid thoughts on how to make the series we love (and sometimes loathe). Find out the secrets to getting TV shows made and how to break in and break out in today's highly competitive broadcast environment — and why network executives actually care about what you write on message boards. No canned speeches and press releases here — get the straight scoop from television's most talented writers and producers, including Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The Middleman, Lost), Ashley E. Miller (Fringe, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Robert Hewitt Wolfe (Alphas, The Gates, Riverworld), Steve Kriozere (NCIS, Femme Fatales), Steve Melching (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Transformers: The Series), Gabrielle Stanton (The Vampire Chronicles, Haven), Jose Molina (Firefly, Terra Nova), Amy Berg (Eureka, Leverage), and Mark A. Altman (Femme Fatales, Castle). Moderated by Jeff Goldsmith (The Q&A With Jeff Goldsmith) hosts. Room 23ABC

4:00-5:00 IDW Digital— The IDW digital team lives on the bleeding edge where creativity meets technology. From iPads to phones to game devices to TVs, each platform brings something different to the digital comics experience. And what about original digital comics? Learn all from IDW's director of ePublishing Jeff Webber, iVerse CEO Michael Murphey, and Dr. Who writer Tony Lee, along with special announcements and surprise guests! Room 9
