Voice talent extraordinaire, Crispin Freeman is bringing two popular panels/workshops to Anime Matsuri 2015. Now our attendees can meet him and experience his popular workshops. These events are very high in demand and sold out wherever he goes. There is usually a fee to access them, however their debut at Anime Matsuri will be free to all our attendees.
Voice Acting Workshop
Crispin’s live Voice Acting Workshop is always a standing-room only crowd pleaser. Crispin starts this panel with an exploration of what makes good and bad dubs in anime. This includes a humorous look at some of the worst dubbing in anime history. Then, it’s time for the audience to try dubbing. Volunteers will be selected to step up to the microphone and voice act in an actual anime show. It’s a hands on experience that cannot be duplicated outside of a professional studio. Crispin brings his own ProTools recording system with him to let con goers experience what it’s like behind the mic in a Los Angeles studio.
Explore the different mythological hero journeys that manifest in both American and Japanese animation. Learn how the different religions and mythological traditions of each culture shape the cosmology of their stories. This in turn dictates the type of journey the hero will take.
