Students Pitch Comics To MGRX Productions
November 28, 2016
Local comic book creators Melody Giesbrecht and Greg Renton of MGRX Productions met with GPTech students last week to critique comic book concepts submitted by two secondary and four post-secondary students. Renton offered plenty of advice to these would-be purveyors of pulp fiction, including: Staying true to your idea as an artist; protecting your creations through copyright; networking your idea through social media; and finding a mentor in the business to help bring your concept to life. Thanks to these amazing students who pulled together cover concepts and character back stories – including Gangsta Sloth, Mushroom Woman, and Lady Red River – in a matter of days then delivered their creative pitches to Giesbrecht, Renton and partner Scott Reid.
