G.I.Joe Resolute Boards by LaurenMontgomery G.I.Joe Resolute Boards by LaurenMontgomery
I worked on G.I.Joe Resolute. For one segment. These are the storyboards.
I couldn't find the storyboards section to categorize this under, so I stuck it under comics...
A few of the characters got changed in the final, for budgeting and voice casting reasons. For instance, Stalker is in the storyboard, but it's Flint who says his lines in the actual show.

Wow, this is incredibly educating for a beginner film and animation student like me. I'm so glad you posted this so that everyone can see the amount of thought and careful planning that goes into what people watch.

It's still awesome to be able to claim you worked on the project. Resolute was probably the best Joe story I've seen next to the original marvel comics.

That looks so hard to do...how do you decide on all the placements and perspectives for something so big? It would overwhelm me.

It's not as hard as it looks. You just take it one scene at a time.

How long have you been doing that sort of thing? I've always been fascinated with it. I'm one of the only people I know who watch the bonus storyboard things on dvds.

I've been storyboarding for about 9 years now. I really wish they had more of it on the DVDs we put out, but instead our DVD extras usually suck... :(

I loved this movie! Y'all did a great job. I love looking at the storyboards, I would love to storyboard in animation. Especially WB, you guys have been putting out some great work and I can't wait to see Batman Year One. I'm sad Dwayne McDuffie passed away. He was a great writer and creator in general. Never met the man but I knew him through his work on Justice League and JLU and then the DC movies. I've listened to you sidebar interview many times now while drawing, it's such a great source of information and inspiration. How big are these frames that you do your doing the storyboards on? I would like to make sample storyboards and practice on as boards as possible. Your work is really great. I like that WB is making some of the greatest comics into movies but I was a little disappointed when they mentioned so little about Michael Turner on the Spuerman/Batman: Supergirl movie special features. He deserves a lot of credit and he left a great legacy behind.

Storyboard panels are usually around 4inches wide and about 2.5 inches tall. But that was when people drew them traditionally on paper. Now with computer programs for storyboarding, people can zoom in making it easier to draw in the small space and when they export it, it'll print out the correct size.

how big are the sheets? for that matter the drawing area? do you ever alter the board to your ideas, say you find a better way of laying it out?

The sheets are legal paper size. 8.5 x 14. I did it on the computer so the canvas is as large as I need it to be. It just prints out small. And the storyboards are my ideas. If I find a better way of doing the scene, I can change it, as long as it hasn't already been animated.

OMG....how do you guys keep track of everything? Is someone usually scanning the art in and putting them to this layout or ar your artists just drawing directly on the sheets?

Both. I drew these in the computer then stuck them on the template in the computer as well. Others draw traditionally directly onto pieces of paper that look just like this.

Thanks for sharing, these are very interesting!
I do storyboardst too, but never in this much detail. I suppose it would help me out a LOT if I did put the time to do something like this XD

Wow, fantastic! I loved G.I. Joe Resolute - it's totally what G.I. Joe should have been, without being dumbed down for parents' sensibilities. Thanks for helping to make it. (I'm sure the paycheck didn't hurt, of course. XD)

This may seem like an odd question, and I'm sorry to bother you about it, but for those of us who cannot afford to attend schools that teach storyboarding classes, do you know of any good books or websites on the subject? (I figure it's more polite to ask that than to bombard you with a bunch of questions you probably wouldn't have time to answer anyway... ^^; )

I loved it, and just got it recently. I was hoping it'd come out on Blu-Ray, but no luck. I took what i could get. So much work went into it, but it was worth it.

I'd say that looks like a lot of work for one segment, but that would be ignorant on my part, given that I don't know how long one segment of an animated show is.

If I'm not mistaken, each segment of Resolute was supposed to be five minutes or ten minutes long before they were combined into the full film.

You're welcome. I was nerding out when I found out about Resolute and how it was much more like the old comics instead of the Sunbow and Dic cartoon.
