21st Century Media Making: An Evening with Lance Weiler
“Igniting the Imagination of Man”

Without a doubt, this is an amazing time to be a storyteller. We have moved beyond the simple democratization of storytelling and production tools. Funding, marketing and distrubution solutions are commoditized, providing storytellers numerous opportunities to bring their works to an audience. And now a new phase is arriving, one that merges technology with the creative process. Join Lance as he pulls back the curtain on how he designs and produces 21st century storyworlds and social experiences.

Lance Weiler is distinguished producer in residence at Ryerson University. He is a storyteller, entrepreneur and thought leader. An alum of the Sundance Screenwriters Lab. Lance is recognized as a pioneer because of the way he mixes storytelling and technology. WIRED Magazine named him “One of the twenty-five people helping to re-invent entertainment adn change the face of Hollywood.”
