  • Steve Yun - digital animator, Web designer extraordinaire!

    While still a young college student and part-time hacker in 1998, Steve got his first job at an anime company as a digital animator. It was a dream come true for any fan who grew up on Robotech and Macross to be working somewhere in the anime industry. After slaving away through 80 hour work weeks and one really bad 100 hour work week where he started hallucinating from being awake too long, Steve called it quits and went back to Riverside where he got his BA in Creative Writing. Stay in school, kids!

    Since becoming part of Harmony Gold, Steve Yun has had fansites and fanclubs devoted to him, as well as internet stalkers, convention stalkers, petitions to get him fired and websites devoted to exposing the "real" Steve Yun. Steve has co-produced and associate-produced several other projects as well, including the Macross restoration, the Robotech:Battlecry videogame, the Robotech: Invasion videogame, Robotech Remastered and Robotech: Shadow Chronicles. Steve has also been featured in an anime documentary called Geeks, which he has still not had a chance to see. Visit http://www.robotech.com/content/aboutSteveYun.php
