Back in 2009 I had the chance to collaborate with director Elliot Bouer and Crest Animation on THE LITTLE ENGINE THAT COULD direct to DVD movie for Universal Animation and the Starlight Foundation. It was a fun little project to work, I didn't have the chance to work on too many sequences as I was then hired to be episode director on a CG animated series called THE LEGEND OF ENYO. The schedule was pretty tight which didn't allow us to go to the type of clean up I normally do, the links below will take you to PDFs of the rough sequences I did. Be warned, they are quite raw.

This board was done on more of a TV schedule, it's rougher than the feature boards, but it was fun doing action which partially parodies Star Wars and kung fu movies. Please click on the link below to see the board:
I worked on last years Crest Animation/Lionsgate production Alpha and Omega for about nine months, I would be assigned sequences with some instruction from the director and then given some freedom to explore ideas in the rough stage. That's what's really fun, when you are given the opportunity to put something of yourself into a board be it a gag or piece of unscripted action, even more rewarding is when the director agrees.
This is sequence 1 the opening of the movie. It doesn't play like this in the movie much of it was cut out and probably for good reason . . . it would have been too long. Please click on the links below to see the board, I had to split it into four parts:

The storyboards on VIVA PINATA were challenging in that the characters didn't have hands, but it was kind of fun in that I was allowed to call on classic animation like Tex Avery when handling comic situations. This was my favorite episode Wild Horstachios. Please click on the link below to see the board:
