STORYBOARDS

This page features a collection of storyboard samples for film and animation projects - produced on paper with pencil, ink, photoshop and procreate.

OUR RIGHTS - (2022)

Following from our previous project, the Mencap Animation Club decided to pitch a social production entitled: "Our Rights". The project was to be presented in the style of Aardman's Creature Comforts - where we interview random people about a certain subject matter and then translate the recorded dialogue into animated animals. In our case, we present the interviewees as birds.

MENCAP ANIMATION CLUB - (2021)

As part of a little exercise with the Ceredigion Animation club, we had to create a few original characters to crossover with each other. I was tasked with creating a storyboard for the project of what would happen if certain characters meet up. I originally wanted to create a story of Mer-Pirates chasing Octowoman who finds a treasure map hoping to stop treasures or items being dropped in the sea. Instead, it became a story where certain characters interact with "JokerCat".

SONIC MORBIUS REDRAWN (2021)

Even though I am not a fan of Sega's Sonic franchise, this fan project gave me the opportunity to create digital storybaords - experiment with storyboarding for exisiting character designs, colour effects, camera angles and action sequences.

DOCTOR WHO FA: THE SILVER SPOON (2021)

This animated fan web-series gave me an opportunity to try creating thumbnail sketches, concept arts and storyboards with special effective tools - as well was working existing characters.

FAR FETCH (2020)

During lockdown, I was approached to produce a storyboard for a short film pitch: Far Fetch. I recieved the script from the director Andrew Okello, and managed to create pages of each scene. Using my skills as a cameraman, I decided to include a few additional frame shots for any moment of the film that might come in handy, as well as a couple of sketches before a finished page would be completed.

THE STOLEN KINGDOMS - Original pilot storyboard (2019)

As part of my University MA Animation project, I decided to create a mini pilot for an animated fantasy series. The original pilot was pitched through storyboards before the actual script was made. In doing so, the full storyline would have reached roughly 10 minutes, so it had to be cut down to 5 minutes. I would like to revisit this storyboard in the future.

VEGGIE RUSH: NIGHT OF THE LIVING RADISH (2018)

After creating my first-ever animated short film at Bridgend College, Veggie Rush, I have always wanted to create a sequel or spin off to the characters. One of them was a Halloween special. During my second year at University of South Wales, . I created a short animatic for the opening scene, and then slowly got into creating a rough storyboard using Photoshop.

ENEMY WITHIN (2016)

This was the first time I got to work an international film crew creating a short film based in Australia. Much like with It's My Shout, I was given a script to work with and sent the finished storyboard to the director. This was my first short film I worked on that included mature content.

SHORT FILMS MADE IN WALES (2015)

My first work experiences in storyboarding came when I took part in a film trainee scheme with BBC It's My Shout productions. I was given the opportunity to storyboard for two short films: Hiraeth and Stone Soup. Both jobs involved meetings with the director and producer discussing which specific scenes required specific camera angles and shots, and what style of film making they were looking for.
