When I came into Con-Ops Sunday afternoon and saw Eyeshine and the other guests congregated I asked them for a group shot.
Initially the response was rather a bit backwards with only Johnny Yong Bosch showing his face and Cristina Vee giving me a Vee while Sonny struck a sexy pose.
Then they turned around and things started getting really weird, but weird is good!
Last year at Anime-ZING! I got some fun video of Sonny and Robert in their panel so I focused on Cristina Vee and Eyeshine this year.
Cristina Vee is a singer, voice actor, gorgeous lady, and a fan of all things cute and sweet. I loved her enthusiasm for all things cute and geeky. From what I hear she was so excited to find a favorite cereal when they got food for guests that she was singing and dancing with excitement. I was excited that Cristina agreed to do an interview with me!
It was great to see Eyeshine again and I was pleasantly surprised when Maurice told me he had used some of the video I had shot of past performances in their video. This, of course, spurred me on to doing better this time. They wanted some video of their singing “in the round” that is with people all around them so I gave it my best try. I had to wend my way around chairs, cables, and such and even accidently unplugged Polo’s guitar cable at one point but they seemed happy to get the video clips so, hopefully it will be worth it. Here are the guys of Eyeshine ( Sadly, Crystal couldn’t make it this time!) singing their unrelease song, Satellite.
Later I was chatting with the guys as they were carrying their gear to Con Ops and getting ready to go to the airport and I mentioned that I would have to get an interview with them next time around. To my surprise, the guys said we should do it then and there and I found myself totally unprepared to do an interview and having them sitting in a stairwell and looking at me expectantly. Since the guys of Eyeshine were happily blocking the stairwell and didn’t intend to leave until after the interview and people were wanting to use the stairs I proceeded with the interview. So don’t mind the voices of folks who were behind me waiting to use the stairs! It was a fun one and during the interview they talked about their upcoming releases and, speaking of releases, Maurice revealed his super power so watch for that. All in all the guys showed that they can be awesome even without Crystal (though she brings the beauty to the group!)
