WFHVA #19: The Process of Creating the World in Your Head, Sourcing Talent, and Being Proud of What You Do with Keiko of MLA Entertainment
Keiko is a Voice Actor and the Owner of MLA Entertainment. Web series and movies are her creative passion but Keiko always has her hands in other unique projects.
MLA Entertainment is an award-winning entertainment company founded in 2010. Their main objective is to deliver original web series, movies, music videos, and other entertainment that reaches deeply into the human soul.
I am thrilled to be sitting down and chatting with Keiko on this episode of the podcast!
Keiko and I have been working on a YouTube web series, Project Infinity, together (she has the creator and me as voice talent) for four years this fall. It has been a heck of an adventure and I’ve loved getting to know my fellow cast members and Keiko over that time. I’ve always been super curious about her process and how she brings the worlds in her head to life.
While this conversation actually took place last fall, with the finale of our web series airing soon, I thought it appropriate to share Keiko’s thoughts on her creation process, how and why she decided to outsource voice talent and a bunch of other wonderful gems and insights when it comes to being creative and sharing your genius with the world. You don’t want to miss it!
