Another commercial I storyboarded for Mekanism. Directed by Brian Perkins. I was watching “Good Wife” with the good wife when it came on during a commercial break. Fun little surprise on a lazy Sunday evening.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a bit. Here are some beat sketches for my Midnight project, more to come.
In an effort to get warmed up with Storyboard Pro I’m going to do a storyboard from life.
My three story choices are..
1. How I got my dog MIdnight.
2. Trouble at the bmx track as a kid.
3. The birth of my daughter.
Im leaning towards the bringing home Midnight. But the others have more comedy value…hmmmmm.
First day of actual prepping of my new studio space in downtown Oakland. I will be sharing the space with a good friend of mine who has a network security company. So far it’s been lots of hellish trips to IKEA and Home Depot. My goal is to be set up by friday. I made good progress today, so I’m hopeful.

I must admit, I had my reservations about this program after being a faithful user of Mirage/TVPaint. I still like the drawing and painting tools in TVP better, but the ability to mock 3d camera moves, quickly edit, and add sound/dialog on the fly makes it a very powerful production tool. Here is a little test I did from a movie I’m sure you will recognize. The point of this exercise was to wrap my head around the software. My final analysis: for strictly storyboarding in a production setting my vote goes to Storyboard Pro, for taking your storyboards all the way through to a final 2d animated film I’d go with TVPaint.
