The co-founders of Voice123 and VoiceBunny, Alex Torrenegra and Tania Zapata, made a trip to Tokyo to have an opportunity to meet those in the Japanese voice over industry, face to face. You can click on the link to see the list of attendees:
This Voice123 meetup was very special given the attendee list included Japanese voice over celebrities such as Yuki Rhinehart, and Teppei Shinjou, senior producer from NHK, in addition to English-speaking voice talent, who have grown their careers in Japan. The first official Tokyo Voice123 Meetup was held at a beautiful location known as The Peak Bar, at the Park Hyatt Tokyo Hotel in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
Co-founder, Alex Torrenegra reported that a few of the voice talent in attendance took the high speed bullet train from 2 hours away, just to be a part of this meetup; a distance that would normally be a 6-hr car ride.
Voice123 currently has 179 Voice123 Meetup communities world-wide. Since this Meetup, only yesterday, voice talent in Mumbai, India have also expressed interest in holding a Voice123 Meetup.
