Focus comics features one of the worlds first autistic super heroes. We are proud to serve autistic and special needs kids/youth by offering autistic and special needs kids free, unique life enriching experiences that they cannot get else where.
On Friday, our Focus comic creator Yvonne Wan, hosted a free Celebrity voice acting workshop with industry veteran Tony Todd as their special guest. Tony Todd is known for his role in Candy man, the voice of zoom in the Flash ,the voice of Venom, and Focus in Focus Comics. The kids were super excited to meet one of their favorite role models within the entertainment industry.
Our students learned about the relationship between comics, animation and movies. Our students also learned valuable voice acting techniques, gained some general career advice and was granted a special Q&A session with Mr Todd.
