Ed Baker – Storyboard Artist

Thumbnail pass is by far the most fun part of a storyboard. Give the script a couple sink-in days making notes, blocking a little, and watching random stuff that pops into your head as you reread and then it’s time to start swinging. I turned in my first storyboard in the summer of 1993 living in Culver City. The board for that episode was one hundred and eighteen three panel pages on legal paper. My process was awkward and skills were limited but it started my career. 

Today boards are hundreds, sometimes thousands, of panels laid across a timeline with audio dropped in, limitless camera possibilities, and you can noodle yourself to death with timing. Anyone else remember using arrows? Yeah, good times. During this rapid growth into what storyboards have become, I have worked for Netflix, 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 from both scripts and outlines, for 2D and CG productions, and usually drawn in Toon-Boom Storyboard Pro. Thanks very much for taking a look and considering my work.
