Ed Baker – Storyboard Artist

Thumbnail pass is the best part of a storyboard rotation. You’ve given the script some sink-in time, but it’s still fresh. Ideas are popping, the clock’s ticking, it’s go-go time! I turned in my first storyboard in the summer of 1993. One hundred eighteen three-panel pages made up the entire eleven-minute episode. My process was awkward and skills were limited but it launched a career.

Now our boards are timelines, digital pipelines, cutting to tracks, almost limitless camera, laying in music/sfx, and endless noodling with timing. It’s a golden age for storyboards where we press play on a QuickTime file and ready or not there it is. During this rapid growth into what storyboards have become I’ve worked for Nickelodeon, Disney, Titmouse, Wild Canary, Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network where I was fortunate enough to receive two primetime Emmys for storyboards.

My boards have been built from scripts and outlines, for both traditional 2D and CG productions, and usually drawn in Toon-Boom Storyboard Pro. Thanks very much for considering my work. Gotta get back at it, It’s go-go time-
