Nick Kondo, a senior animator for Sony ImageWorks takes the stage at Van Isle Comic Con Sunday in Sidney.
Kondo will share inside secrets about the animation process for the ground-breaking film “Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse” that took home the Oscar for best animated feature film at the 2018 Academy Awards. The film made headlines and was highly praised for its original style that has been compared to bringing a comic book to life on the big screen. His presentation is June 9 at 2:15 p.m. in the Charlie White Theatre at the Mary Winspear Centre.
This year’s show includes panels with American actors Blake Foster and Michael Copon who both appeared in the hit TV series Power Rangers. The franchise is still going strong today and garners a cult following. Foster was the youngest actor ever to be cast as a Power Ranger while Copon went on to roles in One Tree Hill, Scorpion King and others. He is currently working on Dystopia and new sci-fi TV series.
