Der­ick Tsai: Pro­gram DescriptionDerick_Tsai

Have you found your­self feel­ing stale and going through the motions with your clients? Have you lost that cre­ative fire? Join Der­ick Tsai, Cre­ative Direc­tor of con­tent devel­op­ment stu­dio Mag­nus Rex, as he explores these top­ics for an evening enti­tled RE:INVENTION. Der­ick will share the story of his friend who rein­vented the way he cre­ated art to com­bat paral­y­sis brought on by ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Dis­ease) and how that inspired him and a group of oth­ers to cre­ate the work that have rein­vented their careers in ways they’ve never dreamed of. This event will be per­fect for any­one who has a hit a plateau and wants to recharge their cre­ativ­ity and begin to see their career in a new light.

Bio: Der­ick Tsai founded Mag­nus Rex Stu­dio as an attempt to push past his own self-imposed bound­aries and turn his per­sonal cre­ative poten­tial into real­ity. That found­ing spirit has con­tin­ued as Mag­nus Rex has gone on to develop con­tent for film, TV, gam­ing and the web for clients such as Mar­vel, Nike and The His­tory Chan­nel. In 2013 Mag­nus Rex debuted RE:INVENT, an orig­i­nal book about career and cre­ative rein­ven­tion at San Diego Comic Con 2013. On Novem­ber 24th, 2013 he gave a TED talk @TEDxYouth@SanDiego on the story behind the mak­ing of the RE:INVENT. Der­ick is cur­rently speak­ing around the coun­try and devel­op­ing his project Mythika as an episodic ani­ma­tion and graphic novel.
