Early in the year some of NZ’s filmmakers found themselves with a rush commission and TheCartoonist was called midweekend to storyboard at short notice. 48 hours of work, 40 frames of film direction. Hey, let’s strut our stuff and really show what we can do at a pinch: we’ll provide ‘em in full colour and with detail like a Graphic Novel.
The guys in the planning office had been there several days before I was called on, but by the end even I felt my eyes were rolling around in the bottom of my shoes.
Ya don’t normally get to WORK that hard on a normal day.
What a rush!
Because I love a good bit of photoshoppery, here ’tis faked as a film on a dirty lightbox.
My fave bit of artistic license is adding the grubby tape marks around the edges.
