Teaching Down Under!

I've just returned from a 2 week trip to Melbourne, Australia to teach story-boarding to a select group of industry locals. They were a dedicated, hard working bunch eager to learn and absorbed my lessons and assignments with aplomb.The enterprise was arranged by veteran animation director and producers Peter Viska and Colin South with support from Film Victoria.

We had a whole day of gesture drawing exercises which was exhausting for all!

One evening I did a 'live story-boarding' demo for an invited group of Melbourne animation pros. I was given a page of script fro ma 'Fatal Attraction' type scenario and talked through my process as I drew.

. . . and, of course, mean caricatures ended the affair!

The team made this terrific thank you card for me
