So it occurs to me it’s been awhile since I posted any of my storyboard revision work. As I’ve said before, the difficulty with that kind of work is that you’re generally just adding bits and pieces here and there. But I’ve got a couple samples of scenes from the show Dawn of the Croods that I worked on for DreamWorks. You can kind of spot my work by the non-photo blue underdrawing.
One of the things that I’ve found over my time in animation is that every so often you have those projects that stand out…in a good way! They are special. You have a blast working on them and realize, “Ohh! This is why I got into animation!” Dawn of the Croods was one of those for me!
Part of it was definitely the material. It was so much fun getting to do some of the outright goofy things we did. I loved making contributions to the characters’ acting. But the other part of it was the people. We had a really great bunch of people on that show! It was such a good experience, all the way around.
To my Croods Croo: all the best! Love and respect always,
