Progress on our latest work

We do storyboards


Story boards can make or break a shoot. We've seen it so many times where a team has a difficult time expressing the action translated from a script to the rest of the crew to get the shots they need. We have done animation and live action storyboards for many years. 

Below are some examples of different storyboard styles that we have used for a range of projects. Near the bottom we have included some character design and random sketches for various projects. For more info contact. BlkFlyProd@gmail.com

Character Design


I have worked for a number of animation studios, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Men in Black, Godzilla, and more. Animation is quite different then live action film or TV. I didn't design any of these characters from scratch, I had to adapt my drawing style to their model sheets and then draw them as they were. Below you'll see some of my practice runs at these characters. Teams of people made these characters what they were. They were refined and edited down to their most basic, repeatable designs and lines. 


Each drawing of and existing character is a challenge. I have to adapt what I know to suit the director's needs and make the character look like it is meant to. The above and below illustrations are older drawings of getting familiar with each of the characters nuances.
