Japan Voice Talent Announced for Kick-heart
Main Voice Actors in Japan Announced
Today at an event that took place in Tachikawa celebrating Production I.G's 25th Anniversary, we announced our main Japanese voice actors that have been selected for Kick-heart.
We also showed a work-in-progress cut of the film at the event in Tachikawa.
After Recording (AR) Session
Also, we thought you might like to see some video of one of our recording sessions. Maki Terashima-Furuta shot this video during a recent trip to Japan. In Japan, dialogue is recorded after the animation is near complete, hence the name "AR" of "After Recording". Please see below:
Amazon Payment Issues
A small percentage of our backer's payments did not go through properly and were rejected for some reason or another ( incorrect billing address, expired cards etc). If you did not receive a confirmation email from Amazon, would you mind checking your account to make sure it went through properly? The subject of the email from Amazon should read: "Your Payment to Production I.G, LLC has succeeded." For most of you it should be fine, but we just wanted to alert our backers just in case they were not aware.
Yuasa-san and the entire Kick-heart staff is hard at work finishing the film. We will be starting to send out surveys soon to collection the necessary information for shipping the rewards to our backers. Thanks again to all of the backers who made this possible.
