A big bonus of going to NDK is getting to catch up with people that you have met before. There is also the bonus of these people being voice actors. A few years ago we interviewed Patrick Seitz, and we were lucky enough to get to do it again!
Another recording from NDK 2014. This one featuring Ian Condry on the Soul of Anime. Dr. Coundry is a cultural anthropologist and associate professor of Comparative Media Studies at MIT. He has done fieldwork research in Tokyo's anime studios which has included interviews with creators, merchandisers, and fans. His book, The Soul of Anime: Collaborative Creativity and Japan's Media Success Story (Experimental Futures), can be found on Amazon.
It is rare that we get to interview international guests, but this year at NDK we were honored to interview Hiroyuki Hashimoto from Japan. Take a seat and listen to this wonderful conversation between Proteus and Hiroyuki Hashimoto.
Our first interview of NDK was the one and only Chris Patton. Please enjoy.
