Evening of short films and stories with Rick Spencer





QMU Honorary Fellow and top creative expert for the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida, Rick Spencer returns to Scotland in March. Once again aiming to inspire audiences with an evening of short films and storytelling. The American author, producer and director will present a series of award-winning short films whilst also shedding light on the creative process - from idea, to paper, to screen. If you’ve ever wondered where filmmakers find their concepts… how they develop them…and finally how they create successful productions, this is an opportunity not to be missed. Some poignant, others funny and one or two that will touch your heart, the films you will see will have you talking for days.

In recent years, Rick Spencer has provided scripting and show direction for the grand opening of the ‘Wizarding World of Harry Potter’ and ‘Despicable Me – the Minion Mayhem.’ His credits also include the feature length motion picture ‘Thunderborn’ and the television series ‘Shining Time Station’ starring ‘Thomas The Tank Engine’. Universal’s interactive website content and live entertainment for HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS (’03 thru '18) including an Addy Award as director for the Legendary Truth Interactive Websites, specializing in experiential story telling.

As well as being Creative Manager for the Universal Orlando Resort, Rick is author of five novels: Icebound - The Viking Cipher, All that Glitters, The Moneymaster, Terror Merchants and The Devil’s Mirror. His private clients include Paul McCartney’s MPL Communications, Time Warner and National Public Radio.
