Christine Auten

SXSW V2V / SXSW Interactive
Austin, TX

Christine came to SXSW in 2008 as a seasonal employee for the Interactive Festival, with no intention of staying past that one event. Fast forward to 2015 and she is now one of the producers of the Interactive Festival and the Executive Producer of the newest event in the SXSW family, SXSW V2V.

Prior to landing at SXSW, Christine worked free lance as a Second AD and then as a stylist in the commercial and film business, as stage and film actor, and as a voice actor / ADR director in the anime industry... basically anything for a paycheck. That last gig stretched from her first show, voicing the character of Priss in Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 in 1999 to her latest show, Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse (TV), voicing Cryska Barchenowa. In between she voiced characters in over 100 shows, some that were very popular (Izumi Curtis in "Full Metal Alchemist" and Teresa in "Claymore") and some that were pretty obscure (Maria in the animated movie "Vexille - 2077 Isolation of Japan" and Claudia LaSalle/Narrator in "Super Dimension Fortress Macross").
