I’ve just been told of a very exciting event happening on the island at the end of the month. On April 28th, Qualicum Beach will be hosting the North Island Digital Media Symposium which will feature many talented folks from TV/Film, Video Games, Animation, Digital Comics and more. Even better, most, if not all of the speakers live and work right here on Vancouver Island. Perhaps the most exciting thing about the symposium for me as a big fan of science fiction movies (and Blade Runner in particular) is the keynote speaker: legendary designer Syd Mead.
If you’re interested in going, check out the official website for more details. Tickets are $25 each ($15 for students) and the event goes all day from 11am to 5pm. Just the sort of thing to add some excitement to a lazy Sunday.
