Here are the intro slides I made for our SDCC Korra panelists. I had a very narrow slice of time in which to make them, but had a ton of fun in doing so.
Happy dance! We’re heading to San Diego Comic Con for a Book Three panel on Friday, July 25 and it’s going to be AMAZING!
Hey, guys! The Korra SDCC panel is on Friday, July 25 at 11:15 am -12:15 pm, Ballroom 20. Mike and I are super excited to be joined by Korra panel veterans Janet Varney (Korra), Seychelle Gabriel (Asami), and David Faustino (Mako), and first-time Korra panelists Mindy Sterling (Lin Beifong) and John Michael Higgins (Varrick). We’ll be showing a new, never-been-leaked Book 3 episode, and some other cool sneak peeks. Mike and I, along with various special guests, will be doing three signings (that I know of) during the convention. More info on all of that soon. Looking forward to seeing you in San Diego!
On my way out of yoga I noticed a familiar face on the cover of a stack of LA Yoga magazines: Seychelle Gabriel, voice of Asami Sato. It features a nice article and photos of her and her father Guy, who first introduced her to yoga when she was 10, and now teaches it extensively himself.
The initial lightning bolt of inspiration that sprouted the whole Avatar universe came during a yoga meditation in 2002, fusing disparate ideas and sketches that Mike and I were kicking around and forging them into the seed of the creation you know today. It is an incredibly powerful endeavor. My focus shifted into martial arts and now into trail running, but I am enjoying getting back into my own yoga practice after many years away from it. All the while, yoga has remained a very central and important part of Mike’s life.
Mike and I finished up the last of the Korra Book 1 DVD commentary sessions with Seychelle Gabriel (Asami) and Janet Varney (Korra) this morning. Hope you guys enjoy them! We have a lot of fun recording them.
The Dream Team!
At first Mike and I were included in this photo shoot, and then the photographer diplomatically asked, “Can we try a couple without the producers?” Unlike that No Doubt video where the photographers only want to shoot Gwen and the dudes sulk over to the shadows, Mike and I said, “ABSOLUTELY!” and we ran away, relieved.
(We did a fun, live interview for ew.com too, but I don’t see it archived on the site now. I’ll post it later if I get a link.)
