This storyboard is done with traditional tools including pencil, brush marker and tonals all done in progresso pencil. Back before we started using digital tools. 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.
Nerds and Monsters (20 X 30) – World Premiere
Premieres: Wednesday, March 12 at 5:30 p.m. Returns to its regular timeslot at 4:30 p.m. ET/PT on Wednesdays beginning March 19.
Nerds and Monsters tosses a group of nerdy kids on a fantastic uncharted island. The tween castaways must use nothing but their smarts to survive the relentless attacks by the island’s inhabitants – a tribe of hideous and hilarious Monsters that are mistakenly threatened by their human invaders. Lucky for the nerds, these dim-witted monsters don’t have any smarts. – See more at: http://www.corusent.com/home/Corporate/PressReleases/tabid/1697/Default.aspx?Id=2636#sthash.uVUGf9rL.dpuf

Stella And Sam Wins Rockies:
How cool is this. John van Bruggen my hubby wrote a script called “Night Fairies” for the animated series Stella And Sam. I had the pleasure of story boarding that script and now that show is winning awards like the Banff Fiction Rockies . For more on the awards click here.
Congratulations JvB! Congrats to director Ray Jafelice and his amazing crew at Mercury Filmworks who made this show so lovely. Congrats to John Leitch, Michelle Melanson and Jain Dickson, the producers with the vision at Radical Sheep.
