One of my highlights from J1-Con is attending Greg Houser’s voice-over workshop. Known for his work in One Piece, Tales of Vesperia and many other animated series, Greg brought his talent and experience to Atlantic City. Greg was funny, engaging and interesting to watch as he shared his background and interacted with panel participants.
the Blackfinity Gauntlet Podcasting Summit spanned over two days of the con. The Expo was hosted in The Bourbon Room, formerly known as the House of Blues which is located on the Second Floor of The Showboat Hotel. The House of Blues is an iconic venue, so being able to take in an event in such a historical place made it that much more memorable and the energy was definitely in the air.
