BELOVED VILLAINS: THE MAGIC BEHIND CRUELLA DE VIL, THE JOKER, AND MORE! (ROOM C3)

A great villain can leave the most lasting impression and memories! Sometimes even more so than a great hero. Why is that? Hear from Genese Davis (The Holder’s Dominion) Naomi Canale (His Dark Ways) Tracy Clark (Illuminate; Deviate), and Eric Kieron Davis (Senior Producer, Creative Director) as they dive in to what makes villains memorable, what type of villains should be invented next, and how to transform just an average evil character into an epic evil villain!
