I mentioned briefly in my last post that I was picked up by a new storyboard agency – Animated Storyboards: asb-art.com I’m really excited to start working on some great projects with them!
In the meantime, I thought I would show off some of the boards that I did for them as promotional material. These were frames from several storyboard ideas that I had for myself to freshen up my storyboard page. I’ll probably come up with some new ones specifically for that page now. I took a frame here and a frame there from each set, pencilled it, and added color in photoshop. Five in all and four others that didn’t make the cut. None of them took too long to do, though I did go back a few times on a few for some minor alterations along the way.
Take a look…
First up, I wanted to do a bar scene, but it evolved into a party scene:
Had to do a vehicle related board. I believe this was a ford? Can’t recall. I didn’t add the ford label since it was supposed to be generic. I put it in a simple jungle(ish) scene with a tough gorilla next to it. Because, why not:
This one I really liked. It was an odd-couple idea I had in my head. Just a fun short film/commercial type of idea where these two end up together in a park:
A cute animal-filled board. In this one, I wanted it to feel like it came out of a children’s book:
They also used the three guys drooling shot from my older beef boards:
And now onto the few that didn’t make the cut. First off, they almost used my “Pump Up The Pressure” boards as they felt my recent work was better than my older stuff. I can see that:
Another shot they didn’t use was this one – angry baby! They felt that potential clients would prefer seeing a cute baby than trying to get my humor. Fun as it was to do, I agree. If someone is glancing through several portfolios, it’s best to make it as easy as possible for them to pick you:
This last one I was a little bummed that they didn’t use. I mean, I even added a lens flare! Okay seriously though, I like how this one turned out. The argument on this one is that it had too much going on in it. They compared it to more of a comic book shot. I guess it just had too much. Ah well:
There we have it. All the boards that showcase what I do on ASB’s website as well as a few that didn’t quite make the cut. I’m looking forward to seeing what type of work I have coming through them.
As for my next post, in the next day or two I will be posting a Jaeger challenge image from sketch theatre. Stay tuned!
