As well as storyboarding, I am versed in illustrating bespoke marketing concept visuals to sell in ideas to clients. Whether it’s that branded outdoors event at a music festival, or another sampling stand at Waterloo, I can quickly draw the idea up in Photoshop where it can be easily amended if the client suddenly changes the colour of the Brand Ambassadors sweatshirt.
My drawing ability is only limited by your imagination, and I’ve worked on countless big advertising agency pitches that have pulled in a lot of new business. Work is supplied as a file to insert straight in to your presentation.
Drawing up a scamp from scratch on my wacom tablet creates something very special for the client. It means that their idea has been drawn up in a fast clear neutral fashion to succinctly determine whether the idea has any further mileage to explore before investing any further studio time in it.
Aspirational young people enjoying the summer, grown men on skateboards, hipster painting a giant mural. Another thirty second commercial storyboarded.
It’s really interesting when I see how my frames compare to the finished commercial. Production company storyboard frames differ from advertising agency frames as they don’t have to be so ‘whizzy’ and ‘colourful’ because they are concerned with the practicality of filming for the director.
Production style storyboard frames created on my Wacom tablet, I’ve been increasingly working with commercials directors and production companies and I’m really enjoying working in black and white line.
I’m getting increasing amounts of briefs requiring animatic frames, moving limbs, cars, etc. It’s really interesting to bear this in mind whilst drawing in Photoshop layers though they take a little longer to complete. Much of it also seems to be destined for online media, which has opened up an entire new avenue of work for me.
