Astronaut animatic by Tallychyck Astronaut animatic by Tallychyck
Weeeeelll, DA doesn't accept .wmv files, but you can watch the video on vimeo!  vimeo.com/109063754
This is an animatic for a short story I boarded back in March (It received a DD; THANK YOU!!) <3

I went back and spruced up the boards with helpful feedback from story artist Randeep Katari who I met in NYC this summer. :) www.randeepk.com/ Follow his work!

I drew the frames in Manga Studio 5 (Frenden brush pack) and Photoshop CS4, and assembled the video in Windows Movie Maker.

Just stumbled across this and had to leave a note that I thought it was great. The concept is adorable and some part of me now wants more stories like this.

Space vet. AAMG. Seriously you should fund a way to make this into a full animation or a little comic strip oor something.

Did you find Windows Movie Maker user-friendly to use in terms of importing & restructuring images?

Screw storyboarding jobs! Give your Space Vet a catchy name and you've got an awesome series pitch! ;)

Good luck to you! Lovely work, (as always).

Hahaha, thank you!!

Maaaaaaaaaan, someday I will pitch an animated TV series.  But I really do want to work in a studio and learn the ropes.

Ohf, WMM is the worst.  Well, not the worst.  Pretty bad.  I actually sprung for an Adobe Creative Suite subscription right after making this, and now I'm using After Effects / Premiere for whatever needs I come across making my animatics. :>

Good to know about WMM.  I've used a bit of After Effects for my kid's stop-motion stuff. It's a powerful tool.

They do internships every year at Laika right there in Portland.  Are you back home yet?  I used to visit the studio back when Vinton was there.  If you are into stop-motion you could do no better than getting your feet wet there.  I guarantee they need character artists, and story board artists, and the lot. Keep an eye on their boards.  And I also recall seeing a Pixar storyboard position or two posted last year.  

You are incredibly talented.  Keep working and networking and you'll be there within 5 years.  You heard it here first! :)

Thanks again for info.  

Cheers!

Thank you so much! :,D

Yes, I'm back in Portland.  And oh, I'd be thrilled to work or do an internship at LAIKA, what a fantastic studio!   I was fortunate enough to get a studio tour when they were filming Boxtrolls, and I felt like I was in heaven. <3  I've been applying to their internships and positions for years, and I'll keep trying. :)

Cheers!

dA doesn't accept wmv files!? Do they only work with FLV? seems weird but meh. Anyway, it looks fantastic! The flow looks fantastic. Do you do more things like this?

This is a new thing for me.  I'm applying to storyboarding jobs in animation, and I need practice/samples. :>

If this is an example of your work, then you'll quickly get hired! I'm sure you could use practice on the finer details of the field that I'm not familiar with, but from an editorial stand point, you're amazing.
