And joining me as always is the gravity-defying way how do I defy gravity.
And then you don't crash if you don't if you never look down defy gravity.
Like a great work in your body like is the candy three running steps and then you go that's exactly what it's like to.

[2:18] Yeah i wish i could i will stylish silly things i wish like like a power puff girl i was a kid might hit somebody line down and all that,
kind of wish sometimes you know that I was a,
comic you know can a little income is i need in each figure something that i really like that's animated figures interest and is bringing up today.

[2:41] Really maybe because we have Renee from the animation track here,
well isn't that like pretty special how that happened,
hi guys loves listening to you guys that are girls and flying in all the things that you really to do in a carton yes i wish i could can i.
Mean while wanna leave you by either fly me there was once it's don't touch that period of.
Yeah not not on bb gun and all help is just awesome unrivaled mail tracking so who's home screen if he beauty.
Lee still at work a little depressed super speed and I could clone myself and four people could do everything that sitting here to be done,
nay you are the second the second right.
Animation animation track I want to make sure I got it right which is different than the anime track correct.

[3:51] We basically at this point cover any animation that isn't specifically japanese um that would be drawn by can we do feature certain.

[4:03] Hells that are not just american but also from your in our styles french art styles.
What anime is so specific to Japanese art styles we cover can everything else.
That's cool and in,
Woody called so you get things like Rick and Morty and Steven Universe and those kind of things right,
rigor mortis universal try and a lot of the which again mr them how
anime influences but they are definitely very Americanized in their style and their art
in their story telling and just kind of really fantastic ways for all ages really enjoy eggs and some of those are the most popular ones and we have a couple of
panels that featured those specific.
Titles this year Dragon Con so I'm really excited to have a lot of fans congregating in Atlanta and having discussions and talking about and with professionals on these really popular titles.

[5:10] Yes so you're going to be done with you have those those panels and will get into what those are but you also have a lot of voice-over guessed right.
So we have one of the biggest announces that came early this year was are strong you had in a voice actress in this game or.
Ever forever and she doesn't look a day over.
To me like eighteen she's so cute she has a what he does with bubbles from powerpuff girls see the couple of ways is in teen titans which is always super popular brother at the original or teen titans go,
she has just has a huge discography of all her voice acting talents and she has a couple of panels that are being a kind of cross feature with different tracks but she'll be in a lot of places throughout the weekend
wheels of the voice of Korra who's going to be there one of our special guest and returning professionals.
George you, Uncle George food voice of Space Ghost Coast to Coast so we have some
endless laughing I wonder if you remember me from the because he stole my also buco.

[6:27] He might if you if you.
Gautam and tell him I bet you he would remember because he probably would because it was really funny cuz he was like did you eat any of it I'm like I didn't but you didn't have dinner so you have it first cuz you're again.
Another gone but yeah
yeah but yeah he's been around he's been around forever in actually least talking about the one that was in Jacksonville briefly.
As in one time.
And that's also where I had I bet Tara Strong there she wasn't she was a guest there and that was that was like.
Any eighteen years ago this point no now that think she look old but she's you know she's just always in the continent she's always looking fabulous that's awesome that she's so active in all conventions and.

[7:27] The.
Yeah we have not only and forgive me because I'm terrible with her and voice actor names actually
but we have not only voice actors but a couple of the animators who worked on the show as well so it's really great because people can get a full spectrum
of not just the voices of people upset their hands on bringing these shows to life.
What's really cool is we actually have a few behind the scenes of that makes sense for like literally for cartoons they are the.
All the background scenes village are hugely important or any show that you were experiencing right now so,
it doesn't only just highlight the again voice actors and a talent voice talent but it also highlights be professional 2.
Actually draw or anime or bring it to life on screen so it was really exciting being part of the animation tracks a lot of them are local lot of people who live in the south or even Atlanta,
get a chance to
professional knowledge to the masses and there will community of people who are friends lucky we're just getting into to see a self centered out at.

[8:49] That's that's cool you're also doing some panels for charity right.
So we're super excited this year the literacy organization that we have going on but that junk on the official,
jerry is has already been doing a lot of leads of like the super hero bunch events and every panel that we have we always have archer you more out so people can donate anytime rp.
Panels that were excited about our will two or more panels will competition we have a costume competition that is Saturday and so.

[9:24] Saturday morning would you pre-judging and then Saturday afternoon I got for is when the actual event is and they announce the winners we are doing a conference we are taking,
funds and encouraging people to bring their dollars of they can donate then we also have to sing along one of them is a,
Steven Universe sing along which I'll be leading one of my favorite parts of the entire convention specially now because they have like.
Read new song that they just announced from the show that were initially on be soundtrack which i am of course
so of course I do as well as toon Tunes which is going to be all-encompassing from
Disney to Nickelodeon to 90s Nostalgia so we'll have a lot of different.
Is it that will be having sing alongs to for that and.

[10:19] We're getting curtain people to bring out there bring out anything they want to donate or our special jar and they will we also some prizes to give away for minimum donation but last year for the sing-along 1 sing-alongs arrays.
$300 so we were super excited about that we want to just lose that up again this year.

[10:47] So that's like super exciting anyone that really wants to make a go any further and you have time if you look at your schedule the app without you can see exactly when all of our programming,
is even I forgot even though I take screenshots of everything in the Apple account information but I never thought of that one,
no it is because you're right you get there and then sometimes you don't have room and you're just like,
my thing is finding ways to like hack conventions not in a bad way but just to make sure that.

[11:38] Spending time building a ball up in the air trying to get service because there's no wife i know you just be in a dead area everybody thousands of people are using the same sprint network
so screenshotting that the app is nice because it's got I'm sure you're going to talk about it but like you can actually pinpoint it'll show you where on a map
your location or your panel is also the entire so say you want to see Tara Strong sometime during the weekend
you quicker on the guest page and you can see her entire panel schedule and with a time there and that's enough. I'm pretty sure snapshot the time
that was issues with account name is you can go through there and actually and i connect like making for you can see her drop weekend star at all those things so
I was super enthralled with the app yesterday I went through the entire
get to this but cuz you were having a little technical difficulties getting on so we didn't want to.
Yeah we wanna do you but that is right and i just got it out and it really helps,
amber there will be some changes dot what the app is now i would say the best idea is every it with this idea of your little um.

[12:56] The screenshot I would do maybe one now and then each morning you might just want to look at that screenshot and make sure nothing's changed
yep yeah yeah that's why I like if you go back to your hotel room to change costumes or just to relax or you can get on somebody else's mobile hotspot you can look it up that way,
i'm at the,
it is a great first reference and then you know the info desk or the signage at they have all around is just like another straight face I also write everything down and pain in my calendar like because I'm ridiculous
but I hand-write it there along with what costly that we're for each event and who I'm supposed to meet at 1 the photo shoots are so I'm,
so I'm awake looking at those things and that's why your assistant director do those things.

[14:05] I do think what i love though is also that doesn't just goes very quickly go oh i'm not talking none no i'm designing her now i got to the every ten years i because you like i don't people lol okay.
You guys are like that's great.
I talk I host panels when panel is don't show up if I know the the topic I will I take it on
I have people that can also help you with that so would you need some backup so we can email me later okay,
oh we'll do what sometimes we don't know till the these people you can just basically text him and say hey if you're free I know at least two or three people I might be able to help you with,
then we will definitely keep you on that fam virus,
not me not me father go now if i can give you their names and the she's wrong she's doing it she's doing exactly what you work all the directors do the volunteer other people,
delhi to john as well as how things to grow up don't yell back what we dish of
so where are you located physically at the drag at the Dragon Con at the Dragon Con are you going to be doing at the Googling later after I can come where are you located.

[15:29] Okay so we are thankfully in the same space as last year which is the Hilton Galleria for it's a very bottom level of the Hilton as soon as you go down the well with the.

[15:40] Depending where you're coming from your usually end up on the lobby you go down one more level,
the back of the hotel before you get to the photo shoots area and go down the escalator ever leader lead the,
Once you turn left off the escalator we're the first room there so Hilton Galleria,
for it's a great space room it's got,
nice soft wall that just in case we need to remove them for any particular reason but it's.
He it's it's a very nice space to say that and i really like how they renovated building a couple years ago i think area,
down there i am so i and i love it that's the space that we have it set for those been gonna drink on for a while release of for blake last for five years it use to be the old z score gaming is to be.
In a broken that out into several rooms cuz I believe podcast things down there with you as well.

[16:41] Release date World last year last year I haven't looked this year but animes down there,
track is down there Britt track I'm pretty sure was down there last year and and podcasting maybe one or two others and I would imagine you're the signal down there for your,
phone is terrible though wasn't the best that
another note for anyone that likes you'd get coverage on their phone or even do videos or whatever pictures just take everything on your phone videos pictures
whatever you go in till like really lower-level Hotel spaces and upload them later I am like filthy cream I love doing videos I love doing livestream
but I already know like anything that I get is not going to connect so I just capture everything and then later in the day or later at the end of the weekend I upload it later because.

[17:31] Absolutely no way but there's some great panels that go on down there that sometimes you just want to pull out your phone and you know take a quick shot of
but that's just a good key item don't try to do it anything live or stream anything while you're down there cuz even we have to have a hard connection for you know what you were trying to run any screening,
another actually a good thing to say if you were panelists or doing anything like that we we ask for internet we ask for it very nicely.

[18:01] And we may or may not get it so we got it and yet it's just not it yes you have internet but not in this room this room is special.
what mineral panel is its good to have like i know we usually have an actual laptop that have these just did julie saved already know of a presentation for power point is make sure that it's,
natively available on a disc or on your device on Google Drive or Google or download it specifically or even you know make sure it works with all PowerPoint,
levels because sometimes that's been an issue too so technology is fun when it comes to Convention,
and I know we're going to have even better programming this year with some of those people returning so
I'm so excited to the geek out with other people about cartoons that's literally been my whole life.

[19:13] That's great because i think it is your your one of those it's like a lot of are on yours again i'm doing this because i love you mom and got a small business days and i think that also awesome awesome awesome,
yeah it's a great opportunity DragonCon is Ben actually my 10th year going but it's still my second year,
this will be my second year being involved on a volunteer sort of level so it was great work my way up seeing what we can do more getting more people to come out though.
Excited probably more excited my cost is all finished but you know as of right now you that they're not so it can you paint toes to your.

[19:59] Yeah so of course the bunny hutches Thursday so I'm creating a bunny outfit for princess Allura which is from Voltron poses going to be able play off of that character for Thursday and I'm in a group for.
It's a very stylized goddess Sailor Moon group we have all.
What time is it was created by the art was based off of is an artist that is on instagram and also costlier name.
Desi Desi.
Or does he does he wanted us back are really gorgeous are i've seen the other girls completed project it looks fantastic i'd say about sixty percent done but will you done i have a lot of peas that is the together,
I'm going to have a casino to cosplay which is from the new show aggretsuko.
Which is really fantastic if anyone has an office job hasn't watched that yet it's really good I think that be considered anime because Japanese but it's also just really cute.

[21:04] What's the handle mexico which is in look like hello kitty it's on netflix.
Okay it's about this really adorable Hello Kitty looking red panda who works in an office job and really likes metal music and it's not it's like a slice of life she deals with her terrible boss and dating.
It's it's mostly and a happy necklace is put out the fire is it's rating is in a better jeweler's it.
Is it just isn't do you know if it's a Netflix original or is it,
yeah so they worked with I'm pretty sure that I'm pretty sure they work with Sanrio because it is the art I'm telling you it looks like Hello Kitty and the characters I think are based off of Hello Kitty characters and it is Netflix original it is dubbed over into English you can watch in Japanese or English,
and because is a very kind of like cut out style art but he it's it's very is not six really don't but i don't appreciate it because again it's about her having is a regular,
you know I pretty sure she's an accountant you working account and accounting firm the main character she's not like.
You don't really crazy friends one of the friends is like the office bubbly girl and that's me.
I have a group is going to be doing um costumes from that.

[22:26] And i am free to have a walk to costa number briefly because i'm.
I'm a handle on lock food is a french animation show that's been really popular in the past few years all completely class animation.
And a Steven Universe cosplay which is done actually so that one's easiest because it's already completed but.
It's got a giant afro attached to it so that's always fun to try to travel with.
Cool so let everyone know where they can find more info on the animation track,
sure so we have a Facebook page is DragonCon animation track.

[23:11] And you can just search for that actually traded Facebook event pages for all of our programming so far we're working on doing Google event Pages as well but the Facebook ones seem pretty active
you can also message me directly at random
would you like me for you guys you know spelling it's like my email but Wren Lynette
you buy me on Instagram Facebook Twitter and I will point you in the right direction.

[23:39] And as well as the drinking happened probably one the best places to look you can organize everything i track and you can pinpoint and star the,
panels ignition going to so that you have it right there on your phone already sometimes facebook event pages will translate to google,
calendar so that's pretty helpful as well but you can definitely check like that,
check Facebook check the app with me if you ever have any questions about them and they will give you all the information not all panels are of course in Galleria for
some of them are going to be in the higher-level rooms in the Hilton with the bigger rooms for the gas inside,
but we make sure that we pinpoint all those things so easy to navigate.
Now before we leave we like to play a game with our guests today well for this one for animation.
Got me so bad it's killing last year i did hear blood in,
is the one because Jon said it up so you would remember oh yeah I like that okay doing that again this year this year I actually have a very tiny chance,
