LeSean Thomas is a unique individual. It is rare to be able to speak to someone who has had experience with the American, Korean, and Japanese animation industries. He has worked on such diverse projects as The Boondocks, The Legend of Korra, and Black Dynamite.
Mr. Thomas has even created his own comic series Cannon Busters which he Kickstarted with much fanfare to produced a proof of concept animation which has the potential to be turned into a full series. He is someone who could be a guest at an American comic convention, at an anime convention, or a school to give a lecture on international animation.
We sat down with him to discuss his success with Cannon Busters, his thoughts on Kickstarter, and his views on International collaboration.
