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.

As an update, I’ve been quite busy with new feature work. Wish I could show you some of that! But you know how it goes…no one gets to see it until many years down the road after the films are completed.
So here’s another piece of a board done last year for the good folks at SLAPHAPPY CARTOONS. Please click on the image to see the third part of this storyboard:

The first panel on the first page is by Steve Whitehouse who boarded the first half of this song. The last 5 pages were cleaned up for me by the talented Brad Coombs.
