Chase jumps into action! This was the first sequence I storyboarded on the film. What a great way to break the ice.

Paw Patrol: The Movie- Storyboard sample

Here’s a sequence of story panels I created for Paw Patrol: The Movie. The film is out now. I’m pleased to see that this sequence is close to what I boarded.
Story supervisor Joe Giampapa and I were the first board artists to start on the project at House Of Cool in May, 2019. We were soon joined by a top drawer team of story artists. I completed my story work on the film in February 2020.
I’m always happy to work with the team of director Cal Bunker and producer Bob Barlen, a pair of great communicators.
Note: This is untimed video- panels are a half second each.

Surly spinning another scheme…

Surly spinning another scheme…
Back in 2015- Here’s one of the sequences I boarded for The Nut Job 2. Surly Squirrel, voiced by actor Will Arnett, was always reaching for his next big thing. In this scene he laid out yet another plan to be the great big hero to his flock of fellow park animals.
Note: This is an untimed quicktime, .5 secs per frame to give it a pace. Not edited for the dialogue.

The Girl makes a tower out of wooden tongue depressors (it looks just like the Toronto CN Tower). But Dog has other ideas! He tosses his ball and knocks the tower over. …Girl can’t stay mad at him for long.

The Most Magnificent Thing at Festigious

Here’s THE MOST MAGNIFICENT THING winning best film in the Festigious online film festival for February. Original reposted by Author Ashley Spires. Thanks Ashley!



I’m excited to announce the completion of my directing gig on THE MOST MAGNIFICENT THING, a 22-minute CG featurette for Nelvana. I had the privilege to story shepherd this film for one year and ten months! The talent at this studio inspired me to aim higher. We’ve done it.

Screenwriter John van Bruggen adapted the story to screenplay from Ashley Spires’ book of the same name.

Looking forward to sharing the film at festivals world wide.
