KidScreen Summit may not be until February, but planning has been in full swing and two new high-profile sessions have been announced for the event.
The Magic Behind Pixar’s Magic is back by popular demand this year, as screenwriting expert David Freeman deconstructs a dozen of Pixar’s cinematic moments, identifying storytelling elements and techniques used to evoke emotion.
Meanwhile, VP of consumer insights at Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group Jane Gould will be on hand to lead Gender-Neutral: What it Really Means. This session will kick off the Summit’s Kid Insights track, breaking down how kids three to 17 are responding to gender roles and stereotypes in the programming they watch.
KidScreen Summit will be held from February 10-12 in New York. For more info, check out www.kidscreensummit.com.
