Watchmen Revealed will be an evening full of inspiration, information and insight as the MPC team reveals the challenges of adapting “the greatest superhero stories ever told” (Entertainment Weekly). The evening begins at 6:30 pm with a free industry mixer where you and your friends have the opportunity to quench your thirst, nosh on some of Vancouver’s local culinary delights, catch up with your peers in the industry, and possibly meet some of the current and future decision-makers in town.

At 7:30 pm, Ben Cole, Landon Bootsma and Tim Mulvihill of MPC will reveal the pressure of recreating one of the most acclaimed comic books in history for the big screen and explore the technical hurdles they overcame to bring to life some of the more complex scenes in the film. This is a unique opportunity to gain insight into one of the biggest movies filmed in Vancouver.

This event is sponsored by: VanArts, Sophia Books, AnnexPro, Stash DVD Magazine, VEA[BC] and the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada Vancouver Chapter.
