Andy Frain, founder of the anime distribution company Manga Entertainment, talks about his work with Japanese animation and how it’s led him to develop manga and anime projects using AR, MR and VR. Followed by the film he co-produced, Ghost in the Shell, which has become one of the most successful and profitable films of the ‘anime’ genre, and has received the unprecedented acclaim from director James Cameron as 'the first truly adult animation film to reach a level of literary and visual excellence'.
