Open Streets

Below are three pages for a 15: second Open Streets spot.  I designed a 30:, 15: and 6: sec. version.  The Open Streets Project has spread from Bogota in 2006 to a large number of North American cities, even to London, UK.

I looked around for a style of storyboard that was a communication upgrade to most of what I’ve seen in the U.S.  Here I’m using a format that is ubiquitous in Japanese animation.  Many productions these days don’t use the traditional 2 column ‘shooting script’ that proved so functional in the past, both for animation and live action.  This Japanese board format brings that functionality back!

Titania

Storyboards for the Titania segment from The Women of Shakespeare, a film project produced by Licensed Fool Cinema in LA.  All the panels were delivered as multi-layered files, so the director could build the animatic with more latitude and motion.
