I don't usually talk much about work beyond my personal projects, but since this ended up turning into a couple big milestones for myself (and its been over a year since my last blog post...) I'm gonna take a moment to mention this one!
Recently a new animated show for streaming platforms was announced called Hobby Kids Adventures. I ended up wearing many hats for this show, being an animator, production supervisor and video editor at the start, then moving to being a storyboard artist, then moving once more to becoming a storyboard supervisor and animatic editor by the end of my involvement. This was my first foray with any supervising positions (beyond my own stuff of course, lol) and in hindsight it was a fun learning experience that I think I gained a lot from. The crew on the show did some really cool stuff too, and I was really lucky to have such a great group of people to work with!
I think I also realized after this show that I really love making storyboards. I had kinda just walked into doing boards on an earlier show without much experience and only a desire to help out more, but I quickly grew to love storyboarding while working on this one. It was a job that let me have a lot more oversight of an entire episode and the story within, but without having to animate the whole thing myself. :P
That being said, hopefully someday I might be able to earn the opportunity to work on a board-driven show instead of something script-driven like this was. I found a script made it much easier to draw almost exactly what your client wanted you to draw (and keep within the time limit for the episode), but there were more than a few moments where I felt like I could have said and done so much more had there not been a script in the way, haha. Maybe someday!
Anyway that's all I have to say about that bye for now
