Jan Scott Frazier worked in the anime industry in Japan for almost 14 years. She attended animation school and later went on to work at several studios, including Artland, Production IG, and Atelier BWCA, on shows including RikiOh 2, Locke the Superman (OVA), Shurato (OVA), Bubblegum Crash (OVA), and Tottoi (feature). In 1994, Jan moved into consulting work, freelancing for Cambridge Animation Systems, the developer of Animo (a computer-assisted (2D) animation production system). In 1994, Jan co-founded GENESIS Digital Publishing Company with Izumi Matsumoto (Kimagure Orange Road), where they created the best-selling Comic ON, a CD-ROM manga compendium in which Jan debuted as a manga artist. In 2000, she moved back to the USA to work at Celsys USA to develop the next generation of the RETAS digital production system.
Jan has traveled extensively throughout Asia and the US, teaching animation techniques and speaking at tradeshows and conventions. She has also translated videos and manga, written and co-written magazine articles, and created extensive training materials for cel painting, animation, and computer animation. In 2006 she produced the album Voices for Peace as a charity benefit.
She has been a guest at over 300 cons around the globe and can tell what a hotel in a picture is from the carpet. She currently live streams talk, stories, games and Con Horror Stories episodes with her weirdo friends on Wednesday and Thursday nights on Facebook Live.
