Six Flags

Back in 2006, my good pal Ben Grossmann asked me if I'd like to board a couple of spots for Six Flags theme parks. Now, I have to say, Ben is an absolute genius, (If you don't believe me, go see Hugo. He and his team did all of the special effects for Martin Scorsese on that film.) I like to work with people that are smarter than me. I get to be a sponge and hope some of their brilliance gets absorbed. Working on this spot was a great learning experience where I was able to learn about green screen shoots and the VFX process. To see it for yourself, check out Ben's original post about the making of the spots. Then check out the spots for yourself here and here.

Here are my boards for the spots.

Bloodhound Gang - Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo

Seriously, Marc Klasfeld is a funny dude. We worked on several videos and the thing that stood out the most to me is that he's a comedian. Sure he's done a few "serious" videos (boards of which I'll eventually post) but for the most part, the guy writes funny stuff. Below are my car designs and boards for Bloddhound Gang's 2005 video of F.U.C.K.

Korn FX "Coming Undone"

Back in 2006 my buddy Lil X was directing the video for Korn's song Coming Undone. The video was an effects driven one where the sky falls apart, then in the last act, the band comes undone. Now, X is a master artist in his own right. In fact he's the reason I wanted to get into storyboarding. He got his start boarding for Hype Williams. When I got a call from him to help design effects for the band coming undone, I was super stoked! These boards are a bit looser, and were used for the FX company as a guide as how to have the band fall apart. X and I had a discussion and I went to town. Below are the FX boards followed by the video itself.

'Nsync and Wolverine!

Here's an oldie from 2001. Wolverine #168. I'm a big fan of hiding stuff in the comics I draw. Sometimes it's blatant cameos. In this particular issue, I put Chris and Justin from 'Nsync, Ali G, Josh Keaton, Joe Mulvihill, Lonny, Brian Truman, Ryan O'Brien, Cain, and the little dude from Bloodsport in. It's always been an extra bonus for me to put easter eggs in my work and this issue was jam packed. I was fortunate enough to get some of my cameo guests to sit for reference photos.

Below are the pencils, layouts and the ref photos for the book.
