Chuck Hoberman and David Misch have been added to the speaker lineup for TEA’s SATE ’13 design conference, taking place at the Savannah College of Art & Design Oct 3-4.
It’s said that nowhere do the disciplines of art, architecture, and engineering fuse as seamlessly as in the work of inventor Chuck Hoberman, internationally known for his “transformable structures.” Through his products, patents, and structures, Hoberman demonstrates how objects can be foldable, retractable, or shape-shifting.
Hoberman will speak about how the role and practice of architecture are transforming, at the SATE ’13 conference Oct 3-4 hosted by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) in Savannah, Georgia.
As chair of the Architecture segment of the SATE conference, Al Cross of PGAV Destinations recruited Hoberman to participate. “As we rethink what we can do with buildings – and what we no longer need to do because of technology, what is the architect’s role?,” says Cross. “It may be time to rebrand the architect along with the architecture.”
“We’re super excited to have David Misch joining us for SATE!” says SATE ’13 Storytelling segment chair Adam Bezark (The Bezark Company). “David’s insights into the heart of comedy are helpful for any storyteller, and he backs his principles up with fun examples from old movies, TV shows and comedy routines. It’s a fast-paced look at the science of laughter.”
From beginnings as a political satirist in Boston, Misch moved to California to write for Mork and Mindy. He also co-wrote “Leave It To Dave”, the pilot for David Letterman’s first talk-show. He’s since written, created and/or produced programs for all the major networks and many of the major (and minor) cable outlets. In features, he was Special Consultant on THE MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN (TriStar) and has written screenplays for Touchstone, MGM and Warner Bros.
His book “Funny: The Book / Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Comedy” (Applause/Hal Leonard) has been called “the best book on comedy ever written by David Misch” and been featured on dozens of TV and radio shows and podcasts.
