Micah Solusod at Dokidokon 2018

Micah Solusod’s voice is featured in series such as Soul Eater (Soul Evans), Black Clover (Yuno), and Blood Blockade Battlefront (Black).

We also dive into manga artists that we like, concerts that we’ve been to, music that had an affect on us, and a whole lot more. Check out this interview that was a pleasure to conduct.

TromaDance Detroit 2018

TromaDance Detroit is committed to creating and operating a film/art festival that is for the people and by the people. All people, regardless of budget, can submit a film and attend the event. This year we do offer an option to pay us a dollar for your submission. It’s only an option though. If you don’t care to or can’t afford a dollar then there’s a completely free option. Just click the one labeled “Free” or “Regular” depending on your choice. Either way, all films will be considered equally. If you choose the dollar option, one hundred percent of your dollar (after FilmFreeway takes out their fees) goes toward helping pay for the actual event.

TromaDance is a film festival wholeheartedly devoted to filmmakers and fans. Unlike most other film festivals, TromaDance does not charge filmmakers to submit their films. Entrance to all screenings is free and open to the public. Also, there are no VIP reservations or preferential treatment regarding films, panels, or parties of any kind given. The organizers of TromaDance believe films are meant to be seen, especially when it comes to new filmmakers. Art – in all its forms – is for the people!

TromaDance features a range of films made independently, usually without big stars, big money and far removed from the Hollywood studio system. The official selections of TromaDance have been made with nothing more than passion, courage, integrity, and raw talent.

Everyone at TromaDance is treated as an equal. The elite and the celebrated are treated no better or worse than the experimental filmmaker or the random moviegoer off the street. Admittance to all screenings, panels, parties, and events is strictly on a first come, first served basis. If there are any VIPs at TromaDance, they are the filmmakers whose blood, sweat, and hard work are on the screen.

TromaDance is an opportunity for everyone who’s ever picked up a camera to have their work seen without the compromises required by elitist cartel interference. TromaDance is proud to be the first and only film festival of the people, for the people, and by the people.

TromaDance Detroit continues this tradition and expands on the possibility of a free and independent festival for the people! TromaDance Detroit features not only independent films, but we’ve expanded the festival to include art in all of its forms. Music, performance art, and more!

Ann Arbor Comic Arts Festival 2018

Ann Arbor Comic Arts Festival (A2CAF for short).

The Festival will still feature dozens of comics artists along with workshops, demonstrations and interactive drawing games. It will still be as kid- and family-friendly as ever. And attending the event will be free as always.

What we hope the new name makes clear is that young children aren’t the only ones who can enjoy a fun-packed Ann Arbor weekend filled with comics and creativity. We welcome teens and adults (always have) and offer a slate of guests and activities to meet a wide range of comics-related interests (ditto).
