Bernie Su, a three-time primetime Emmy award-winning short form and interactive creator and showrunner will be featured at the Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts’ IGNITE on Dec. 3.

Su’s presentation is 12:30 to 1:50 p.m. at the Carson Center, 13th and Q streets, and available via Zoom. IGNITE is free and open to the public.

IGNITE is a colloquium for all Carson Center students that involves guest lectures, workshops and seminars focused on creative and professional development.

Su’s previous works include “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” and “Emma Approved,” both primetime Emmy-winning YouTube interactive series; “Frankenstein MD,” the first scripted digital series by PBS Digital Studios; “Vanity,” a daytime Emmy-nominated digital series sponsored by Maybelline; and “Socio,” a psychological teen thriller developed by MTV.

He is currently the co-creator and showrunner of the Peabody award-winning “Artificial,” the first live audience-interactive science fiction series to debut on Twitch. The series is a fully scripted, serialized live narrative that lets the audience interact with the characters while shifting the story and plot elements. The series is currently in its second season and earned Su his third Emmy in Outstanding Innovation in Interactive Media in 2019.

Su is also a member of the Carson Center’s Advisory Council.
