Concept & Design
Character Posing & Layout
Below are a few sample storyboards, primarly drawn with pencil and paper. I've been using Toon Boom Storyboard Pro and TV Paint - I enjoy the all the nifty timesaving tools those program allows - plus, they do a great job with Animatics.
Aside from the Indie project page, I have developed smaller ideas like the one below. I'm really excited about seeing this one animated!

This is a board for one of the many Pilots that I've been asked to produce. I worked with Eaglemont/Tryptych/PostModern, respectively, for about 3 months, delivering a fully-animated, live-action/animation concept piece. In addition to this, Eaglemont had me re-design the main characters for the Adventures of Riley, animated version.
Another silly "What If?" idea. What better way to encourage a kid to brush his teeth?

This short-subject piece was produced as the INTRO for an Indie feature film called Sustenance. While not naming the company directly, the feature is about the shady practices of the Monsanto empire, through cellular manipulation of seeds. Though the main character, a kernal of corn, is very simple, the real challenge was to create a situation, whereby the audience has empathy for that single kernal of corn. In the final, animated version, we were able to do this convincingly.
