This is a pitch I did for a story called "Tilly". It's about a girl really into military stuff who is given a princess doll for Christmas.

My goal was to create some storyboards for my portfolio and practice pitching. I've been working on it in fits and starts since November (4 months ago!) and most of that time was editing the story.

I did the drawings in TVPaint, which has an easy to use timeline. I used Quicktime to record my voice along with the computer screen as I clicked through the drawings.

I liked how it came out. I'm excited to do another one. :)

You did a really good job with this. Your shot composition told the story very well; I particularly liked the shot of Bella towering over the fallen general. Keep up the good work!

Thanks! I'm so glad you liked it! :D I did take a class at a place called Animation Collaborative. My instructor was a current Pixar storyboard artist. I learned SO MUCH. I highly recommend it. I'm going to keep trying to do more - the only way to get better! :D Are you interested in storyboarding?

yea i really am, like its my dream and i used to be really dedicated to learning .xD like i would by so many books and i found a few free life drawing classes as well as one during the summer, because my art teacher said i need to learn good anatomy before i can really do cartooning. but i heard its a field that doesnt provide a consistent source of income and its a struggle to really get a career in since a lot apparently has to do with luck. i dont know if this is true but im really passionate on learning more about storyboarding even if it may not ending up being my major

That's awesome! Yeah, storyboarding is great. I am trying to break into the industry myself. I've done several portfolio reviews with the big studios and they have all said that good draughtsmanship, good staging, and good acting are all important. Keep at it! I'm going to keep trying. It seems like a trickier business than say character animation ... more elusive. But I did talk to two storyboard artists who say that they are turning down work all the time because they have a lot to do. If you get it, it seems like a good business.

I had torn one of my barbies apart (limbs, head, knife didn't work very well) and tried melting and blackening it will a lighter to make her look like she'd been killed in a minefield. She was buried with honor.

This is so cute <3

are you into actually animating? I would love to tag team with you and help produce some stuff.
I create storyboards also, some sound design and music. also writing.

you know what....you should create a show/movie to pitch.

I do animation as well, but lately I've been moving toward comics. Though I do animation for my freelance work (day job). I have tried pitching a show in the past - I pitched at Ottawa animation festival and entered their pitching contest. I'm trying a lot of different things. Thanks for the offer to work together. There's no way I'm taking on new projects at this time - I'm so swamped 0__0 - but I appreciate the offer!
