Robert McKee

Next week our GameDesigner Sebastiaan van Waardenberg is going to London to see Robert McKee. For 4 days to be exact. If you want him to send you a postcard (you know, a real one, a paper one) just let him know. He'd be glad to...

Anyways...this is an email from the organization. They wanted Sebastiaan not to miss out on some important "Additional Important Details". Get this.

Dear London Story Seminar Attendee,

Just a quick note to say we look forward to seeing everyone at Robert McKee's upcoming London Story Seminar the weekend of 15-18 April!

For the consideration of your fellow attendees so they may enjoy the seminar as much as you, we ask that you please observe the following:

1. Be punctual. The Story Seminar starts PROMPTLY at 9: 00am each morning. Late comers will be seated in the back of the theatre until the first break at 11am. On Thursday, plan to be at the Cavendish Conference Centre by 8:00am to receive your badges, workbook, etc.

2. Mr. McKee has a strict "No Cell Phone" policy. Please make sure your cell phone is turned OFF when you enter the theatre. If your phone goes off during the seminar, you will be fined.

3. Texting during the class is also not allowed as it is very distracting to your fellow attendees (the screen lighting up, the buttons, etc.). Texting will also result in a fine.

4. Computer Users - The back rows of the theatre will be reserved for laptop users so as not to distract others. If you plan on bringing a laptop, please note there are no electrical outlets in the theatre so make sure your battery packs are fully charged.

5. If you need to get up from your seat often (for health reasons, comfort reasons, etc.), please sit in an aisle seat and towards the back of the theatre.

6. Breaks are a half-hour each (11:00am-11:30am and 4:30pm-5:00pm) and lunch is 1-hour (1:30-2:30pm). Please be punctual. Again if you think you will be late, avoid sitting in the center or near the front of the theatre.

7. Bottled water is allowed in the theatre, but not coffee or food.

8. Please wear your badge at all times as you will need to show it as you enter the theater each time.

9. Please be aware that Mr. McKee has strong views on every subject and uses strong language.

Thank you! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to e-mail us (click here).
