    Ishi Rudell &Katie “Lunchie” Hadley Take the Portal to Nightmare Nights Dallas 2015

    As a thankfully brief hiatus comes to an end and our favorite show returns to the airwaves, we’re reminded once again of all the reasons we’ve come to love Friendship is Magic. Whether you saw the show for the very first time yesterday morning or you’ve been around since Episode One, no doubt you remember the things you told your friends about it: The story is great, the characters are adorable and relatable, and every last detail, from the songs on the soundtrack to each frame of the animation, is impressively well-done, together making something anyone of any age can appreciate.

    An excellent show like this one doesn’t just happen by accident. It takes a coordinated and highly talented group of professionals to make each episode a reality, from writers to storyboarders, artists, animators, musicians, producers, and more. Here at Nightmare Nights Dallas we want to celebrate those people who put such passion into their work, introduce them to a community who admires the show they helped produce, and help us all learn more about how they envision and build MLP:FiM from the ground up.

    This week, we’re proud to announce that two of the bright minds behind the show are joining us at Nightmare Nights Dallas 2015: Ishi Rudell and Katie “Lunchie” Hadley!

    Ishi is the animation director for Friendship is Magic and both the animation director and layout supervisor for Equestria Girls. You can follow him on Twitter @ishiH3Art.

    Lunchie is a new addition to the team, joining as the storyboard artist for Equestria Girls - Rainbow Rocks and working as a storyboard artist for Friendship is Magic season 5. You can follow her at @isitlunchyet_t.

    In case you don’t recognize these two fine folks, allow us to point them out on a visual aid, courtesy of the episode “Slice of Life”. Lunchie is on the left, and Ishi is on the right:

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to join Ishi and Lunchie at this year’s NMND!
