Kellee Santiago will be joining John Stevenson (Director, Kung Fu Panda) and Catherine Hardwick (Director, Twilight) to talk to Long Beach and Orange County high school students at Fast and Fantastic. This one day conference will speak to the blurring of the lines between passive and interactive media and the future of entertainment. (Hint: It will be sitting in the audience.)
The conference is put on by 5D and the University Art Museum.

“Modern Warfare 2, set five years in the future, doesn’t seem sure which film it’s trying to replicate, and hovers somewhere between Red Dawn, Black Hawk Down, and all seven seasons of 24. There’s a plot, but it’s incomprehensible.Ignorant non-gamers may scoff at the very notion of a videogame having a plot, but the medium has recently undergone an immense creative explosion. Last week, for instance, I finally got round to playing Flower, a stunningly beautiful PS3 game in which you “play” a breeze blowing petals around an impressionistic landscape. It’s abstract, powerfully touching, yet impossible to describe; it simply could not exist in any other medium.”
