TWISTORY STUDIOS ‘WOMEN IN POP CULTURE’ PANEL AT ANIME EXPO

bl_02_anime_expo_2014-1000x667

Join Twistory Entertainment Studios on July 3, 2014 at 11:45AM at Anime Expo for a very special Women in Pop Culture Panel moderated by:

ELVIRA, Mistress of the Dark – Cassandra Peterson.

Panelists include the Superhero of Belle’s War Danielle Vasinova, DC & Disney artist Sho Murase, creators of Team Unicorn Rileah Vanderbilt and Clare Grant, and music sensation Bean who is going to be performing a few songs from her latest album.

The show also includes new SHINJUKU THE FILM footage directed by Robert Valley based on the Twistory Studios SHINJUKU the graphic novel, written by mink and illustrated by Yoshitaka Amano, an unveiling of SHO MURASE’s new graphic novel, THE ROSE GARDEN, and a special announcement about DANIELLE’S BELLE’S WAR Television series.

We also have a special Shinjuku giveaway for attendees.

Here is more info about our panelists and moderator:

Cassandra Peterson – twitter.com/TheRealElvira
Halloween icon Elvira, Mistress of the Dark was the first horror host ever to be syndicated throughout the US on national TV and has undoubtedly become the best-known Horror Host of all time.

In addition to her original TV show Movie Macabre, she produced, wrote and starred in the feature films Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Elvira’s Haunted Hills, the TV reality series Search for the Next Elvira and, in 2011, 26 new episodes of Movie Macabre. She has made recent appearances on RuPauls Drag Race, Celebrity Ghost Stories, Oddities, Counting cars, Fangasm and Face Off.

Along with Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, she is now part owner of Comikaze, LA’s preeminent Pop-culture convention.

Elvira is played by actress-writer Cassandra Peterson who has spent over three decades solidifying the Elvira brand.

Danielle Vasinova – twitter.com/Vasinova
Known for her work in White Trash Noir, Danielle Vasinova is our very own Super heroine Belle, of Twistory Studios Belles War. She was born in New England and trying out for the New England Patriots Cheerleading squad when she decided to move to LA to pursue her dreams of acting. Since then, she has made appearances in shows including Dexter and Rules of Engagement. She is currently working with Twistory Studios on the short films for Belles war and learning all the tricks of the western era, including gun training and card playing.

Sho Murase – twitter.com/sho_moo
With a style that has Spanish and European accents, Sho Murase has the ability to touch many hearts when she puts a pencil to paper. She grew up in Barcelona and would visit her mother in Japan, but now resides in San Francisco where everything now makes sense for her. Her artwork focuses on a protagonist going through hardship and coming out on top. She has worked with Twistory Studios to develop her own series of photos.

Team Unicorn – twitter.com/teamunicornftw

Clare Grant – twitter.com/ClareGrant
Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Clare Grant is the nerdy version of the girl next door. Her first on screen role had her working alongside actor Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line. From there, she has made her career a fun and certainly creative profession to watch. More recently, she is taking over Youtube with her ‘Team Unicorn’ and has been green lit for a pilot on Adult Swim.

Rileah Vanderbilt – twitter.com/Rileah
As a key part of Team Unicorn, Rileah Vanderbilt works with Clare Grant on a daily basis. Born and raised in Colorado, she is a known geek who loves all things fantasy and comic related, including Stars Wars. Her big break was in 2005s Hatchet after starting young and being involved in community Theatre Groups. She is now working on a series for Team Unicorn for Adult Swim.

Bean – twitter.com/noellebean
Dallas-born, Nashville-raised, and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and performer Noelle Bean began going by the surname “Bean” after her high school music teacher chose to address the budding musician by the one word alone. She was handpicked as 1 of 25 artists in the Macy’s and iHeartRadio “Rising Star” campaign, while both Pandora and iTunes created a “Bean Radio” channel. Her music appeared everywhere from OK TV to spots for Mitsubishi and Coca Cola’s Fantasy Soccer Camp. Meanwhile, she became a live draw opening for the likes of Colbie Caillat, Megan & Liz, Hot Chelle Rae, and Austin Mahone as well as giving a show-stopping set at Bonnaroo 2013. Everything has merely led up to the impending release of her two 2014 digital mini-albums—one in the spring and one in the fall—culminating in a physical special edition with extra tracks for the holidays.
