Project Review
The Phantom 2040
PART CVII [107th]
Mini Vehicle Design Perspective Grid Layouts for Storyboards

Client: Hearst Animation Productions.
Art Director: Myself.
Project Date Spring 1993.


This is my 107th post covering the Conceptual Design and Art Direction work that I did for the TV animated series, The Phantom 2040 from in the early ninety's, and I've posted today these little storyboard layouts I did for the various shows.

On small budget shows, like we had on PH-2o4o, you do more front end work since it will get lost in production once they begin, so if you are diligent up front, you can get a better product with a bit of extra work.

These little layouts I did are just 2x3 in size, so about the size of a business card, and what we experienced on the shows was that in South Korea, they simply xeroxed up the storyboard frame and went from there right to production. So if the boards were vague they would be vague.

They almost never redrew the frame, which is the typical way it is done, so I decided very early on to put some perspective grids in these mini shots to help them even more, and it worked!

If you are a FAN of The Phantom 2040, and on FACEBOOK, there is a group for that....  here.

There is a TAG on the list to the RIGHT for other Phantom 2o4o entry's, but you can click this as well.

Cheers, THOM
