CSN Sept. 2016 – Adapting Graphic Novels Into Screenplays

Jim Rohn / Columbia College

On Sun., Sept. 11th, Chicago Screenwriters Network welcomes Jim Rohn, Associate Professor of Animation & Cinema Visual Effects at Columbia College Chicago. Jim’s presentation will review the process of adapting graphic novels to screenplays and how screenwriting and pre-production storyboards inform the animation production process at Columbia College.

In his journey to Columbia’s award-winning animation program, Jim drew covers for Dark Horse Comics, released his own graphic novels, and animated video games for mainstream developers. “I always had a love for cartoons, comics, graphic novels, and animation, and it all kind of played together.” Today, he brings that expertise to Columbia’s animations classrooms, coaching students on production pacing and character design while honing in on nitty-gritty animation processes.

Admission is $10.00 in advance (which includes all Eventbrite / PayPal processing fees) or $20.00 at the door. As always, CSN annual members receive complimentary admission. In either case, please RSVP via Eventbrite:

For those taking public transportation, the Irving Park station of the CTA Brown Line is a short three-block walk away from the Irish Bistro. Also, the 50 Damen and 80 Irving Park buses both have stops within a two-block walk of the Irish Bistro.

We look forward to seeing you the evening of Sunday, September 11th!
