It was great listening to Giles Panton’s interview from Let’s Voltron and it was a plus when several of my questions were asked too. 🙂
4) Looking back at the series, what was your favorite episode and why?
7) What one word can you share to describe your experience working in “Voltron Force” series?
8) Did it come as part of your research to look up or watch Toei Animation’s series “Voltron Lion Force” for your direction of Keith?
9) In the VF, episode “Inside the Music,” we found out Pidge has a double life as one of the members of Stereolactic, leading me to think if you also imagined Keith has taken up a musical instrument, and what do you think it would be?
10) What would you like to see explored in the series about Keith?
I was nearly floored when half of my questions made it. Everyone asked good questions and due to that, I’ve been leaping from one podcast episode to another. So far my faves were: 37, 38 with Tommy Yune & Filipino artist Elmer Damaso (his name rings familiar somehow. Unsure if my friend The End Justifies the Journey had a post on him before), 39 (with writer Bill Spangler – which all three episodes talked about the Robotech/Voltron crossover and 44 (Cullen Bunn and Blacky Shepherd for “Out from the Ashes” issue) .
inside the cockpit
I remember when LOTR movies came out, I was intrigued and curious of Tolkien’s Middle-earth and it was very fascinating the production did their best to re-create down to the last possible detail they can because from the way Tolkien wrote the books, it gave the vibe that probably Middle-earth existed once and the movie translated the feeling. However through the ravages of time, memory about it faded. Jeffer’s Odyssey and I went through a phase of searching for Tolkien’s books at book thrift shops. I don’t know if she managed to complete it though. As for me, I was able to get copies of the LOTR books and read a borrowed copy of “The Hobbit” from another friend. On the brief note about the “The Hobbit,” I just found out there’s an ebook edition illustrated by Alan Lee!
After having a delayed reaction viewing of “The Hobbit:Battle of Five Armies” (not extended version) my Middle-earth curiosity flared up once again.
which lead me to ask The Philippine Tolkien Society…
I remembered hearing a news blurb about Asia Pop ComicCon last month, I was wondering could we also request perhaps they invite WetaWorkshop too in the future APCC Manila date?
Not yet entering since I think my specs are nowhere yet up to full muster with such relentless scrutiny but it was something I noticed and hopefully, will one day participate too. 😀
Keith in “Voltron Force” series
Our dear Keith and Allura head shipper from the Voltron Fandom sent a DM reminder to me about sending questions for Giles Panton who voiced Commander Keith Kogane in the “Voltron Force” 2011 TV animated series . I was able to send 10 questions for the host to choose from and crossing my fingers, any of them will be chosen for the upcoming Let’s Voltron Podcast.
I have yet to listen amidst other podcasts lined up in my playlist from screenwriting notes, Middle-earth goodies to fandoms. Thank you for liking the tweet. 😀
Leaving you with one of my fave episodes, delving more into the mythos of Voltron.
Season 2 please!
I remember there was an ice breaker game at work, a couple years back. We were told to complete this sentence “I want to travel…” game and well, when it came to my turn, “I want to travel to New Zealand to see Hobbiton” was my answer. 😀 Thanks for sharing your adventure!
While I was able to purchase the event tix, it was such a very long shot of making it before the date. Had the local trip been pushed on a later date, I would have actually made it. There were a lot of factors: re-visiting the embassy site and reading the fine prints, there were items not mentioned on the site which I found out through the visa assistance consultant. Apparently, I would still need sponsorship letter and a letter of invitation along with the pertinent documents for submission with my visa renewal application form. 😦
I did feel the tiniest disappointed because I felt I was missing an opportunity but curiously, as I prayed about the circumstances I was in, that small still voice rang in mind to write treatments first and not be worried so I’m doing just that. I’ll keep the tix as a remembrance. 🙂
