Visual Storytelling : Lessons from Back to the Future
January 26, 2013 / 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Ever since 1985 when Back to the Future blasted onto the movie screen at 1.21 jigowatts, the franchise has stayed in popular culture. With engaging characters, humor, romance, excitement and adventure, Back to the Future pushes all the right buttons. How does one create a movie with such mass appeal?

Gallery Nucleus is hosting a four-hour analytical screening workshop led by Marshall Vandruff on Visual Storytelling. Marshall will start and stop the film several times to offer insight and lessons at key moments of the film. Marshall Vandruff is a freelance illustrator born and raised in Southern California with over 20 years of teaching experience in classical drawing, painting, and storytelling. He has taught at Fullerton College, Cal State Fullerton, Laguna College of Art and Design, LAAFA, and Blizzard Entertainment.
