Date: July 13, 2014
Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

As a founding Member of Studio Gainax and his works, including Gunbuster and Neon Genesis Evangelion, remain an influence to anime almost twenty years later. However, Anno’s career in animation was cut short by a crippling depression that had become his signature narrative element. This panel examines the work of Anno from his early days into his fight with depression where he creates some of his most striking an innovative work.
