This is R_M, your roving reporter...
This is me at a Panera in St. Louis, getting ready to conduct an interview with Harmony Gold representative Tommy Yune. (Click pic for larger version.) The interview took half an hour, and was pretty cool; I tried not to ask some of the same things I knew he'd been asked before in other interviews.
The interview can be heard in episode #58 of the RDF Underground
podcast; or downloaded and played separately. Some interesting stuff came out about the future of the Robotech
franchise, although of course there was a lot Tommy couldn't say. He shot the photo at right with his digital camera; there are some other photos, some also of me, at his photo gallery
of the film festival event.
How was Shadow Chronicles
? Pretty good. It wasn't perfect; it had just a few flaws, the largest of which was that there wasn't enough time in a 90-minute movie to focus adequately on all the new characters. I would like to have seen the same events covered by about eight 22-minute TV episodes, to provide more time for characterization. I'll post a more detailed review on my essay journal or as part of RDF Underground soon enough. But by and large, it was a great experience and a worthy successor to Robotech
. If I had the opportunity to see it again I would do so immediately. February 6th cannot come soon enough. Current Mood: bouncy
