SCREENCAPS: David Tennant Contributes To Adobe MAX 2020 Creativity Conference

David Tennant contributed to the 2020 Adobe MAX Creativity Conference today as a speaker in the session Graphic Design: From Blank Screen to Brilliant.

David talked about taking part in the huge busy international project Around The World In 80 Days, which was shut down after three weeks production due to the coronavirus pandemic. He contrasted this with being locked down in London, with his return to work unknown and the future for those in the creative industries uncertain. David explained how, out of this, people were coming up with ways to be creative without leaving home, and as a result, Staged was born. However, while he was delighted that he and the other cast and creatives of the comedy show had the opportunity to work, it is still a challenging time for the creative industries, with no certainty that theatres will be re-opening in the near future. With many of the UK's best known performers, David included, starting off in theatre, he urges that it is important that the industry is thrown a lifeline.
