Storyboard Masterclasses with Norton Virgien

DSCN0686

Brown Bag Films® in association with Pegbar.ie are hosting an evening with one of Hollywood’s leading animation directors, Norton Virgien (Rugrats) on May 19th.

The event is aimed at aspiring storyboard artists who wish to understand the craft of storyboarding on international television series. Norton will discuss his extensive experience and go through examples of good (and not so good) storyboards, as well as showing episodic animatics of work in production. The event will cover the role of a storyboard artist, a retakes artist and storyboard supervisor as well as outline the expectations and standards set by US and European broadcasters.

Commenting on the master class, Brown Bag Films® Creative Director Darragh O’Connell said “Storyboard artists are one of the key hires on any TV series. To date we have struggled to find skilled board artists in Ireland that have the experience required by U.S. broadcasters, so we find ourselves having to source storyboard artists from the US and all over Europe.’

“Being able to draw is only part of the process; a good storyboard artist must understand story, editing, camera, timing and above all the audience. This is an opportunity for Irish talent to learn from the best in the business and hopefully be the first of many steps in identifying and developing a pool of Irish board artists.”

The master class is free and open to animation graduates and professionals who may be interested in becoming a storyboard artist or improving their storyboard skills. The event will be held in the screening room of our new annex studio in Smithfield.
