Robo design and linework by me – colour and art direction by Tim Gibson.
Some fun designs from the last year or two of playing.
Accident or not?
Here we go, some storyboards to share for the new year. These are from the show Lil Wild featuring a bunch of young zoo animals getting up to them hijinks:
Cute lil show I’ve been storyboarding episodes for this year. Episodes will be out on Youtube eventually but for now you can see them here!
-want to bask in the fully coloured glory of a disgruntled goose and his optimistic side-kick beaver!
Here’s where the money from the kickstarter went:
Amazing work from the team here at NyukNyuk – so proud we got this over the finish line 😀
Hello! So I have been locked in production mode for the past year on a project I cant talk about BUT we are building towards an in-studio project I CAN mention.
I have been involved with directing the storyboards, supervising the team and doing the odd bit of design.
My job as Storyboard Director:
I basically thumbnail out the episode with rough stick figures, get as much of the staging and acting beats in there as I can then pass it on to the rest of the story team to refine into something legible. There’s plenty of back and forth as we build on each others ideas, then it finds its way into edit where there’s plenty more feedback and ideas to build on. Once that’s done we should be left with something that looks a little like this:
What comes next? Well that’s where we need the funds to get some colour in them lines.
Please check out our kickstarter to help bring this goose to technicolour life!
Answering the question of where exactly your candy REALLY comes from.
Occassionally you get extremely lucky and a dream job lands in your lap. This happened for me when I got to work on designing a park of robotic dinosaurs for a casino in Macau.
I was contacted by Studio Cassells in HongKong and was asked to help design poses, colour schemes, storyboards and costumes for the exhibit.
Though I never managed to get over there to see the finished result, here’s a video of some excited people frolicking in a similar way to how I would have:
Leaving Mechanic Animation is such sweet sorrow.
I’ve been able to try my hand at a multitude of new things including Matte Painting, UI Design and even leading a storyboard team through a full season of kids TV.
Excellent people one and all.
