  • CAMERA LAYOUT | SPREAD #1

    Col Erase Pencil | Bristol Board | 2014

    This is a layout spread to plan camera movement around the environment for an important story moment. The truck pulls into the driveway, revealing and introducing the house to the audience, the family's new home

    This establishes how the little boy reacts toward the environment he finds himself in. The landscape is absolutely beautiful, so vast and open, and the house itself is huge and very grand... but so big that the boy feels a little overwhelmed seeing it for the first time.

  • CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT | WARM UP SKETCHING & DRAWING

    After establishing the main characters, I worked on designing how they would look once animated, focusing on body structure and posture, but also giving them a personality and raw emotion in breathing life into each drawing.
