If you haven’t seen my previous storyboards from the Animation Base Camp, you may want to start here or here.

The story revolves around odd-couple animals at a therapist’s office. The scene below, featuring a bee, was worked on by several different people throughout the Base Camp.

I’d recommend looking at Erin’s version – she’s the one who came up with the bee/flower gag in the first place, and developed the bee’s wonderfully pathetic character.

The background of the alleyway was a sketch of Hajnalka Szanto’s beautiful design.

The story revolves around odd-couple animals at a therapist’s office. Throughout the camp I worked on several different versions of a scene involving a shark.

Here’s my first, rough, pass:

A cleaned up version with a different take:

The final version, from the animatic:

In the final version the shark became female, the length of the scene was condensed considerably, and a lot of the humour came from the audio rather than the visuals. (Imagine the shark’s line read in a strong Glaswegian accent.) Given the overall pacing of the story it was the right way to go, but I missed the fun I had drawing the therapist’s reactions.

During the Animation Base Camp we had opportunities to come up with additional gags which were, in some cases, added to the story. Here are some of my shark ones:

I had the privilege of taking part in the first-ever Animation Base Camp, a trainee programme in Glasgow with mentors from Sony Pictures Animation, during July to September this year. It focused on creating visual development art and an animatic for an original idea directed by David Feiss. I worked as a storyboard artist, creating ideas and gags for the project.

You can find out a little more about who was involved at the link above, but I’d like to particularly thank Fraser, Elaine and Will, as well as Jenn, and of course all my fellow students.

The story revolves around odd-couple animals at a therapist’s office. This is one of my scenes from the final animatic, featuring a talkative bear.

We also had the opportunity to develop lots of gag ideas of how some of the couples might have met. This was one of my ideas:
