What does a character who sits on the toilet and a Twitter psychopath have in common? They were both created by this man, Marcus Brown. This discussion examines what a character needs to become in the digital age – seemingly the cross between the Undertaker and a writer/performer. Marcus delves into the 14 characters he has created to give you some pointers for your work.
Marcus has been creating characters and making up a lot of stories online. It's what he does. Online he has been the The Kaiser, The Dead Artist, Sacrum, Charles Stab, The Joker, The Lord God Almighty and Jack The Twitter. In 2010 he tried to walk from Munich to Hamburg for a chat with Dr. Peter Figge but failed. One day, however, he will do it.
In 2011 he joined Booming as Head of Social Media.
“Marcus Brown is turning in some of the finest, most important culture criticism being produced today. I know you've heard me say it before, but this time, really: you'll thank me. If you don't die laughing first.”
Chris Locke, author of “The Cluetrain Manifesto”.
