The Nerds travel to AnimeFest 2014 held at The Dallas Sheraton Hotel in Downtown Dallas!
Long time friend of the show, manga artist, author, and voice actress, Kristen McGuire takes time away from her busy weekend to sit down and talk about the end of her manga series, “Enchanted.” We talk about the type of preparation that is involved for an artist to make a trip to a convention and how one prepares pieces for an artist auction. Finally, we touch on the projects she has on the horizon and finally which anime series she has lent her voice to over the past few years! Be sure to keep up with Kristen by visiting her website, http://www.kriscomics.com! You can become a fan on facebook at Kris Comics – Art by Kristen McGuire and follow her on twitter, @KrisComics!
The Nerds are able to sit down with one of the most sought-after martial arts/stuntmen in Asia, Rueben Langdon. Rueben began his career in Japan. He explains some of the differences between working in Asia for a number of years as a stuntman and then coming to America. The Nerds ask him about his time working on Power Rangers. He is also a very accomplished motion capture actor. He explains some of the difficulties in working in a large motion capture studio versus working on a film or stage with other actors and props to work with. Rueben also has a funny experience he shares with us regarding working as an actor on a project after working so long as a motion capture actor! Check out Rueben’s company, Just Cause Productions. Follow him on twitter, @RuebenLangdon!
Next, The Nerds sit down with artist, Amelie Belcher! You may remember her from last year’s Nerd Show live broadcasat, she’s back and has been on the road recently and she’s coming to the end of her convention schedule for a bit. Along with Kristen McGuire, Amelie has pieces in the art auction. These pieces must be original art and hand painted. The Nerds talk with Amelie about working with computers versus getting your hands dirty and creating the “old fashioned” way. Does it feel good to change gears? Which method does she prefer?

Continuing the AnimeFest 2014 Juggernaut, we are able to speak with voice actress, voice director, actress, author, and Tim Drake enthusiast, Ayu Sakata! Kristi asks about Ayu’s 4 panel comic that she writes about her experiences in voice acting. She talks about how she originally got into voice acting. Ayu creates, writes, and directs her own dating sims. She tells us about the process of creating a dating sim and gives us a sneak peek into one she’s currently writing!
