Editors’ Day 2015
The SCAD Sequential art department will host leading comic book publishers and editors at its annual Editors’ Day Thursday May 7th through Saturday, May 9th, 2015 at SCAD Savannah. Editors’ Day is a three-day event where editors and publishers will review SCAD sequential art students’ portfolio in Hayman’s Hall with panel discussion.
The annual Editors’ Day panel discussion will take place, Thursday May 7th at the SCAD Museum Theater, from 5:00 – 6:30PM. Arrive early to guarantee a seat as seating is limited to 250 people and no standing is allowed.
Visiting editors and publishers include: Joel Enos, Senior Editor, Perfect Square, Viz Media; Dafna Pleban, Editor, Boom! Studios/ Archaia Entertainment; Chris Staros, Editor-In-Chief, Top Shelf Productions; Robin Herrera, Editor, Oni Press; David Saylor, Vice President, Creative Director, Scholastic.
Editors’ Day is open to all students at any of the SCAD locations, (including eLearning), and alumni. Students must apply for portfolio reviews, which will be assigned on a portfolio, seniority basis. Applications are available in an interactive PDF on SEQALab.com, and all students and alumni must submit samples from their portfolio.
Alumni, SCAD Atlanta and eLearning students can email applications with portfolio samples to firstname.lastname@example.org. All Savannah students MUST present their applications as a hard copy to Hayman’s Hall, Room 314. There will be a box for all applications to be dropped.
Although alumni and graduating students have priority, all student levels from all departments are welcome, and every effort will be made to assign students to an editor or publisher, based on availability.
SCAD Editors’ Day has been a proud part of the history of the sequential art department for many years. The event represents one of the few major academic acknowledgements of comic art and sequential art storytelling in the nation. The Editors’ Day permits guests to discuss sequential art concerns from many differing points of view and provides students with an opportunity to network and learn from a variety of top industry professionals.
