Episode #16 – Conventions and Critique

A listener writes in with a question this week, and it’s about using conventions as a beginning creator. Dave wants to go to some shows, and use the relationships he’s built up as a way to get good and honest critiques of his work, therefore making himself a better creator. Andy and Josh talk about the hows and whys of such a tactic, and the best way to go about it, as well as what Dave’s already doing right. For one thing, he’s decided not to be creepy. So he’s off to a good start.
