Animatics

These are animatics from Seasons nine and ten of Archer. I acted as Supervising Director and Art Director for these seasons.

My storyboard team worked on a three-week schedule, each board artist taking an Act of the script.

Week 1:
I direct each artist on what their scenes need to address; punching up jokes, getting ahead of potential blocking problems, and establishing tone.
At the end of this week each artist will pitch me rough boards. I’ll make notes and do draw overs to help get their scenes to the point we need.

Week 2:
Each board artist pitches me revisions from the notes I gave the previous week. We work together to fine tune the scenes before pitching to the EP.

Week 3:
Once rough boards are approved I work with each storyboard artist to make any final adjustments before they begin working on cleaning up their storyboards.
Because all our animation is done in house, we’re a bit more relaxed on keeping the designs on model.
