Houston Texas Convention - ANIME MATSURI

Post by MoDaD » Tue Jan 26, 2016 6:34 pm

As has been announced and others have already pointed out, the Tremblays and Glenn Leopold will be at the ANIME MATSURI convention, which is occurring in Houston, Texas on February 26 (Friday) through February 28 (Sunday) at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Here's the convention's announcement post:
http://www.animematsuri.com/5361/trembl ... e-matsuri/
California based Studio, Tremblay Bros., is bringing Swat Kats Revolution, the revival of the popular 90’s TV cartoon, Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron to Anime Matsuri on February 26-28, 2016 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

Co-Creators Christian and Yvon Tremblay, along with Story Editor Glenn Leopold, will give fans a sneak peek into the new world of Swat Kats Revolution.

Swat Kats Revolution was funded by Kickstarter which saw over $140,000 raised to bring back the beloved cartoon.

Visit the Swat Kats Revolution booth in the Exhibit hall and attend the presentation during Anime Matsuri’s 10 year anniversary event.

Page detailing the Tremblays:

Christian and Yvon Tremblay are self-­‐taught artists in the classical mediums of fine art drawing, painting, sculpture, and animation. From studying and perfecting their talents in the basement of their parent’s home in Montréal, to successfully selling & producing several animated series in Hollywood, the Tremblays have come to be recognized internationally as a prolific and unique creative force. In more than twenty-­‐five years working in the field of visual arts and animation, the Tremblays have been associated, as independent creators of original IPs, with many of Hollywood’s most prominent studios including: New Line Television, The Walt Disney Company, Dreamworks Animation, Warner Bros., Universal Studios, Vivendi Games, Fox Television, Nickelodeon, Hanna-­‐Barbera, Fremantle Media Group, Saban International, Film Roman, Sony Entertainment, as well as with the large Canadian broadcasters Télétoon, YTV, and Radio-­‐Canada.

Their creations, such as Edward, Mega Babies, Loonatics Unleashed and Swat-­‐Kats have been broadcasted in prime-­‐time and syndicated in more than one hundred and twenty countries around the globe. The Tremblays were also the creators and executive producers of a French language series entitled “Vie de Quartier,” the first ever prime time animated series to be air aired by the Canadian broadcaster Radio-­‐Canada. They are currently producing an all-­‐new animated series based on one of the most iconic animated cartoons in history, Felix the Cat, as well continuing to develop original and world branded content.

The Tremblays have been involved in a wide spectrum of transmedia projects from television, internet, and video games, to feature films. Their experience, vision, and creative style have cemented the Tremblay’s as top-­‐tier content creators, on the cutting-­‐edge of artistic trends.
I have been unable to obtain the exact day, time or room their panel is scheduled to occur in. If you learn of any additional details (even if they've already been posted elsewhere) please share them on this thread. I've contacted Christian about sharing any specifics, and once he replies I'll make sure to share them here (or unless someone else can verify first).

I want to make sure the details are accurate in case anyone is planning airfare and hotel arrangements.

Likewise, if you are planning to attend this event and want to share that information, this is also the thread for that :D

Uh.

*clicks "Schedule" on Anime Matsuri website under Info*

Boom.

Edit: Honestly, I wouldn't worry if someone in the fandom can't even make it that day, since the creators still have to make good on their Periscope session on Kickstarter. We'll wind up getting info in either case, I'm sure :) For all we know, they might see if they can set up their session during their panel at the convention. I just hope that their exposure to the fans that WILL be there won't be horrible.

Also, one member of this forum (who wishes to remain anonymous at this time) has contacted me and said they will be attending the convention. They'd like me to ask if anyone else will be attending (including fans who aren't members of this forum) to see if they'd like to meet up at the convention. If so, you can PM me and I'll get you in-touch with one another.
