Writer Kurtis Wiebe, artist Tyler Jenkins and Peter Panzerfaust motion comic
& TV series Executive Producer Jeff Krelitz took the stage at C2E2 for a Q&A panel on Saturday, April 27, 2013.
An attendee published his notes from the panel, including Krelitz words on Elijah Wood, Ron Perlman and Summer Glau's voice work.
My notes from the Peter Panzerfaust panel at C2E2. Overall, the panel was very interesting and included a fantastic and exciting trailer for the motion comic. Panel took form as a Q&A. My notes, a mix of summary and quotations, is below.
I have reproduced a few extracts below:
Question: Voice over for animation.
Producer Jeff Krelitz: Elijah Wood as Peter, Summer Glau as Wendy, Ron Perlman as Hook, and Dante Basco. Orchard scene sounds very promising.
Question: Hearing your characters? How did that feel?
Writer Kurtis Wiebe: Different from voices in head. French characters in my head don’t sound French or speak French. So strange to hear them that way. Very cool. Awesome.
Question: As far as voice-over work goes. Did any actors bring anything special to character that you weren’t expecting?
Producer Jeff Krelitz: Ron read lines in three different voices, his own voice, British, and German accent. German accent was perfect. Elijah got it right off the bat. Understood the character. Summer brought a sense of vulnerability and really got into character. She just let go and poured everything into it. She definitely teared up a few times. /Applause in the booth after an orchard scene reading because so emotional. / I was amazed she was able to deliver so many lines with such range.
An official trailer for the motion comic will be released on May 14, 2013, while the Peter Panzerfaust motion comic itself will be released the following day, on May 15, 2013.
UPDATE: Kurtis Wiebe wrote on his blog about his experience at C2E2, including a few words of thanks to Summer Glau fans.
But, at the end of the day, it was the lightbulb moment about Peter Panzerfaust that will make it a very special one. And really, that’s all because of the people who have given me their time, money and trust and supported this series either from the beginning, as new readers, as speculators, as Summer Glau fans, as anyone who’s been involved in any capacity of spreading the word about Peter Panzerfaust
