sometimes I like writing excessively

here is a storyboard I've been working on... it was partly for one of my roommate Kathryn's classes, so we had to incorporate typography and we were going to do it in stop motion. We ran out of time to do in it stop motion, so I added a few shots that aren't really stop motion friendly and decided to just finish the storyboard. I started getting into "The Five C's of Cinematography" during this and started to get tooo many ideas, so I decided to just get it done and start something new! It was definitely a struggle to be motivated to finish this so I'm just happy its done! Hurray!

It's raining today so I put in my favourite rainy day song so there's that.


here's the poem it's based on

I'm putting it in sequential panels right now but I'm not sure how to show the vertical pans yet... any ideas would be well received.

PS also I think my blog looks f---ing stellar on my iphone so I'm pretty stoked about that. Soon, I'm gonna start conversations with strangers with "Look at how great my blog looks on my iphone, look at it!"
sooo crazy about it

Kaylea Chard's neighbors from hell scenes from Kaylea Chard on Vimeo.

soooo finally here are my fav scenes that I animated on Neighbors from Hell, demo reel style.

The scenes of Pazuzu (the goblin/"dog") in the Lady Gaga costume were my first ever scenes assigned and approved at an animation studio (and were actually assigned to me on my birthday, cool cooh eh?)

I got some really great challenging scenes (like that card one which I did on 1s).
After I mentioned I was disappointed that my assigned scenes ended right before a completely gross one, for the rest of the production the animation director (who is awesome) made sure to give me some great funny/disgusting scenes to animate (basically all I ever wanted in life)

the last scene of Mandy going "ew" was cut shorter in the final episode but on the other hand, I was pretty stoked every time a small additional idea of mine got approved into the final animation :)

anyway, I could probably write a formal essay on why I liked working on this show so much so I'm just gonna cut it short and say that it was great, totally great.
