ROBOCON 10 OCTOBER 6-8, 1995 - GRAND HOTEL - ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA
Welcome to our first progress report; on behalf of the staff of ROBOCON 10, I want to personally thank you for your interest in being a part of this convention. We've all come a long way in the ten years since ROBOTECH's premiere in March of 1985. Over this past decade, Japanimation fandom in Europe and the Western Hemisphere has grown and prospered into a multi-million dollar industry. Today, dozens of companies are marketing and promoting this art form to the masses, with more and more titles entering the market everyday.
There is no doubt that ROBOTECH made an immeasurable contribution to the Japanese Animation "boom" that resulted in the late 80's and still shows no signs of slowing down. Over the weekend of October 6-8, 1995, we hope that ROBOCON 10 will help to serve as a fitting tribute to this landmark animated series.
Among the activities we have planned are panels with the voice actors, people who worked behind the scenes, those involved in creating the music, and various representatives of the american anime industry. Please write and tell us what you would be interested in seeing.
WE ARE OFFICIAL!
AS OF MARCH 25, HARMONY GOLD HAS ENDORSED US AS THE OFFICIAL TENTH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF ROBOTECH. THEIR ASSISTANCE WILL HELP US BRING VARIOUS LICSENSEES AND ROBOTECH AFFILIATED COMPANIES TO OUR CONVENTION. THESE INCLUDE: DEL REY, PLAYMATES, ACADEMY COMICS AND PALLADIUM BOOKS. THIS IS TRULY GOING TO BE A ROBOTECH FEST!
Confirmed Guests of Honor :
CARL MACEK - The visionary behind the ROBOTECH television series, Carl served as the show's producer and story editor. In 1985, in association with Harmony Gold, Carl combined three separate and unrelated Japanese Animation shows (MACROSS, SOUTHERN CROSS, and MOSPEADA) into the most compelling animated drama series ever seen on american television. Carl is currently the president of Streamline Pictures Inc., which continues to market Japanese Animation to english-speaking audiences worldwide.
ARDWIGHT CHAMBERLAIN - As one of the series staff writers, Ardwight brought his considerable experience as a screenwriter, author and playwrite to the show and has also worked on many other projects with Carl Macek and Streamline Pictures. Along with his other work, Ardwight is also an experienced voice actor. In addition to providing the voice of Zor Prime on ROBOTECH, he is currently featured as the enigmatic and mysterious Vorlon Ambassador Kosh on BABYLON 5.
STEVE KRAMER - As the series' script editor, Steve Kramer was charged with overseeing the work of the series' staff writers throughout all eighty five episodes. An accomplished screenwriter, Steve has also lent his voice talents to several of Carl Macek's projects; most notably as ROBOTECH's own Sergeant Angelo Dante.
JOHN MORTAROTTI - As music editor, John was charged with placing the over three and a half hours of source music throughout each episode of ROBOTECH. With over a quarter of a century's experience in film music, John has garnered several Emmy nominations, most recently for his work as music supervisor for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, a project that he has worked on for the last seven years.
