ANNCast Episode 040 - North by Northrop
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
Then our guest Northrop Davis joins us to talk about his line of work, which is chiefly adapting Japanese properties for the silver screen. He's working on a live-action Barefoot Gen, which is pretty cool so we talk about that, and all the little intricacies involved in successfully pitching an anime series to Hollywood fat cats. Then Northrop talks about his involvement with OEL manga, and it's Twitter time! WA-HOO!
