Hey everyone -- seeing as how we haven't put up much artwork lately -- here's the storyboard for the new opening of TDA. Todd and I figured out the whole thing with scribbles on post-it notes and in Flash, planning out all of the shots while trying to keep it as close to the original opening as possible. After that was sorted out I sat down and drew the board up in a bit cleaner fashion, using Sketchbook Pro. This final board contains all of the camera moves and scene transitions along with action notes explaining what's going on. The scenes with orange boxes in the top corner are ones that needed some 3D elements and had to be sent for modelling. The first 2 pics above show the mapping of the 3d elements and how we envisioned the moves happening. Going from here to the finished opening is a ton of work -- all of which was handled amazingly by the crew. They had to take my chicken-scratch and make it the slick full colour opening that's at the head of every episode. The team did a fantastic job, even adding some of their own extra touches.
