After spending his childhood in Oklahoma making animated short films, Eric McEver relocated to Tokyo during college to pursue his passion for Japanese fantasy cinema. While working variously as a theater actor, translator, game developer and animation producer, he developed an offbeat cinematic vision fusing the languages and idiosyncrasies of his two homes. In this guest lecture, he will discuss the unique challenges and rewards of making films that bridge cultures and mediums.


Eric’s feature film “Iké Boys” will be released nationwide in Japanese cinemas on Friday, June 14.
