THE RISE OF THE INDIAN SUPERHERO!

In a world dominated by western superheroes and japanese anime, the time is now to take Indian characters to the world. How do we start? How can India's characters be different and unique. The next J.K. Rowling, Steven Spielberg, Stan Lee or Miyazaki is sitting somewhere in this country ready to transform the world with their stories. Japan, Korea and China have built multi-billion dollar character entertainment markets, yet India, which has some of the greatest mythic stories in human creation, has not been a part of it. After all, long before James Cameron created 'Avatar,' we were the country with the first blue skinned hero with a bow and arrow. It's time to spark a new creative renaissance. Join me for a discussion about how to create and innovate the Indian superhero.
