Comic books can move young adults and teenagers to action. A survey of groundbreaking graphic novels and comic books pushing the edge and challenging peoples’ perceptions. Focus on the Tribeca Film Institute’s New Media Fund recipient -- “Priya’s Shakti.” Discussion and details on how to design an augmented reality comic book and implementing a transmedia project. We outline the entire process: conception of the idea, building a team, partnering with NGOs, raising funds, navigating through festivals and markets, launching the project, deciding to go commercial and turning it into a film, and then assessing its results. Excellent panel for comic book enthusiast, social activists, DIY technological innovators, documentary filmmakers, transmedia storytellers, and anyone who wants to make beautiful art that challenges and moves society. Also, focus on the new frontier of integrating literary publications and exhibitions with augmented reality.
