SpeakerPODcast Ep.41 – Les Claypool III @ Anime Los Angeles

Les-Standing

While out on assignment, SpeakerPODcast co-host Save, managed to catch some audio of Les Claypool at Anime Los Angeles 2016. Listeners may remember Les from the US Renditions panel at Macross World Convention 2015. This panel covers some of the same territory, but also includes some amazing anecdotes about Akira and Macross Plus (head over to the 36:20 mark for Macross Plus).

Since this is a panel recording, the audio is a little on the low side, but stick with it as the SpeakerPODcast Crew found many of Les’ anecdotes to be simply amazing, and hope that you do too.

Thanks again to Save for the audio!

Late last year, the City of Yokosuka hosted an exhibit of works by SDF-1 Macross designer Kazutaka Miyatake….on a boat!

The SpeakerPODcast Crew donned their Powered Suits and headed straight to the Memorial Ship MIKASA to learn about world-building, the difference between reality and realism in mecha design, eccentric creators, and see a LOT of Eureka 7.

IS Miyatake involved with Macross Delta? Who originally came up with the term ‘Super Dimension’?

SpeakerPODcast EP.36 – Macross Live Action Movie Treatment

3

Back in 1994, a script for a live action Hollywood adaptation of Macross was briefly shown during a Newtype.Shonen Ace video special, a VHS bonus for readers of Newtype & Shonen Ace magazine. While entertainment industry insiders like Harry Knowles claimed to have heard Hollywood rumours four years later in 1998, very little has ever been revealed about what was actually in the script.

Until now.

This pre-vis concept of a Zentraedi came 2 years later with the script, but shares common elements with the Zentraedi described in the initial treatment.

Doug ‘Calamori’ has uncovered an initial treatment for a possible Macross live action movie from 1992.
Auto-tuned idols?
A 4000 meter long Macross?
Cycloptic, insect-like Zentraedi?

Tune in as Doug shares his discovery with the SpeakerPODcast American Crew in this World Exclusive. (Yes folks, Darkwater is back.)
