History[edit | edit source]
ProfKranc entered the Abridged community, accroding to interviews, purely out of fun.
His first appearance in an Abridged Series was in his own "Another Abridged One Shot". According to ProfKranc, he said he was talking to a friend when they came across a tune which they thought would go great with an abridgement of the anime: Another. After taking the reigns of the production, he released it and got approached by LeMiles to act as Issei in his Highschool Double Ds Abridged.
From there, ProfKranc experimented with several anime, not settling down on one. He released School Days Abridged, Beyblade Abridged and Parasyte Abridged. During this time, he also released a few How to Abridge tutorials, teaching the technical aspects of creating an abridged series.
Upon releasing Parasyte Abridged, he caught the attention of PowerMadOtaku and has collaborated with him as a voice actor since.
ProfKranc then discovered he lived quite close to abridger: FoulFangFiend, who introduced him to the rest of the abridging community.
Since then, he kickstarted ABCOM (the Abridged Community Discord Server) and the ABCOM Podcast! This podcast (which featured guests such as Soulbrothanumbah3, LittleKuriboh, KaiserNeko, Eagle8Burger, ShadyVox, Faulerro and many more) tackled and debated several different areas concerning the community such as:
Is #TIBA a good thing?
Is making money from abridging ethical
Is Abridging Legal
What is abridging to people
All during this time, ProfKranc has provided voice over for many different productions including video games, audio plays, animations, etc. One of his most notible being the announcer and voice director for Hyper Gauge's ONE MINUTE MELEE.
