What is SAM@Home 2020?

This Saturday, October 24th, Comic-Con International brings to you Storytelling Across Media, or SAM@Home 2020. This is a FREE event and will be available on the YouTube Comic-Con Channel. This year’s event will feature 14 panels focusing on storytelling across television, novels, comic books, gaming, and film. You’ll learn how creatives bring a script to life and how television shows get made! The panels will answer many questions. How does film editing tell a story? How can stories be told with tabletop games? Industry experts lead these awesome discussions.
