What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Hello Stranger: Design & Test Your Alter Ego with Madcap Factory
October 28, 6:30pm - 8:00pm EDT. Hosted at Based In
About this FieldTrip
PLEASE NOTE: This FieldTrip will be held in the beautiful 6th floor lounge and cafe of Based In. Please expect to use the stairs, it is worth the trek.
The best strategy for designing an alter ego is to not stray too far from the truth. Which truth is up to you.
There is liberation and illumination in exploring the world through a second persona. You get permission to do things you otherwise would never consider. Are you a super hero or a spy? Is your alter ego known to others or completely invisible.
In this workshop we’ll:
- Meet the real you
- Discuss the perils of fiction
- Develop an alter ego that stands up to inquisition
- Tie your alter ego to a “cloak”
- Workshop our characters
If you’re feeling up for it, we’ll all go out to a bar for a quick nightcap… in character.
Don’t worry, this is super low stakes. It is an experiment for us too and our main goal is to have fun together. READ the story behind Hello Stranger. Come as you are (or not).
