Science used to wonder – what bizarre effects would over a half century of watching anime have on the human mind and body? Come meet Matt Greenfield and find out the answer for yourself.
Like many kids who grew up in the 1960s, Matt fell in love with cartoons, science fiction and monster movies. Unlike most of those kids, however, he never outgrew it and eventually found a way to prove his parents wrong by turning those interests into a successful career. Since co-founding one of America’s first major anime distributors, ADV Films, in 1992, and subsequently managing Kraken Releasing, Switchblade Pictures, and the Maiden Japan anime label, he’s written, directed and/or produced English language versions of more anime series than he can remember (including EVANGELION, EXCEL SAGA, BATTLE ANGEL, NADESICO, CHRONO CRUSADE, NOIR, GANTZ, RAHXEPHON, BUBBLEGUM CRISIS 2040, INFINITE STRATOS and DEN-NOH COIL,) plus a small tsunami of live action features like GAMERA: GUARDIAN OF THE UNIVERSE, GODZILLA VS. THE SMOG MONSTER, DESTROY ALL MONSTERS, and GARO. He’s also a prolific voice actor and vocal effect artist, most often using the stage name Brian Granveldt.
