Drawn In

August 2013

Cinemagic’s Drawn In project, funded by Belfast City Council Arts & Heritage Funding, gave young people from Belfast the opportunity to learn from industry professionals from the world of comics before creating their own short comic strips.

Over the months of August, September and October 2013, the participants took part in workshops by Mal Coney (The Darkness) and Stephen Downey (Torchwood) on scriptwriting, storyboarding, pencilling and inking, exploring a wide range of the techniques used to create comics. Throughout the project, the participants also created their own short comic strips based on the theme of exploring Belfast’s history, present or even future.
