Storyboard Squad consists of Steve (Stephen)
Worthington, and Meridee Mandio.
We are a married couple of professional comp,
or storyboard artists.
We consistently produce high caliber work for
United States advertising agencies and
production companies, and have done for many years.
It's not just the style of drawing or quality
of design, knowledge and experience that
keeps our clients coming back, it's because
we provide the peace of mind that comes from
knowing your idea is in good hands.
We make sure we 'get' your idea, before we
ever start drawing it.
We combine pencil sketch drawings with a mix
of traditional marker and digital color in
photoshop to achieve our look.
Years of hands on work with ad agency art
directors and production company commercial
directors has honed our storytelling
abilities to make for relaxed and happy
clients, who keep on confidently putting
their ideas in our hands.
We'll do whatever you need, whether it's a few key frames, video storyboards,
shooting boards, animatics, in color or
in black and white.
So you can send us your scripts and then
go to work on your golf swing.
We are a superb two person professional storyboard artist team who between us have lived and worked in New York, London, Hong Kong, and together, Los Angeles and (currently) Santa Fe.
Our long term clients include both mainstream advertising agencies and commercial production companies, who have come to appreciate our artistic abilities, high rate of flow, and our thinking.
Whether you give us a brief written synopsis and rely on our 'directing', or provide detailed thumbnails, you're sure to be pleased with the results.
We are fast, talented, and bring the appropriate style to the table.
brooding cinematic drama to 'in your face' slapstick comedy, and everything in between, you'll find that the manner suits the matter.
Our efficient working methods ensure that you get several spots in your campaign unified by a consistent look, whether they be agency storyboards, production shooting boards or animated whiteboards. Give us your ideas, and watch us go.
Based on experience, it works best like this...
You fax/email us a script or idea. As vague or detailed as you like.
We discuss it on the phone, and when we're sure we've 'got it', we quickly rough out the shots as we see them, or if you provided thumbnails, as you envisioned them, and fax/email them to you.
You say "By Jimminy, that was gosh darned fast, and you totally nailed it. How about we just pull out/push in on number 17 a bit, and do final line and color".
We pull out/push in on #17 a bit.
We do final line and color.
Next time we do three boards instead of one, and your campaigns/pitches start looking more co-ordinated.
You start sleeping better. Your complexion improves, and if we're not careful, the briefing becomes a cell phone call from inside a tunnel, there's no chance to see roughs, and we still manage to get it right.
You grow ever more impressed with our speed and reliability.
We mysteriously appear on your speed dial.
You can check out loads of John Watkiss goodies here, but not before you're done here of course. He's one of my drawing heroes.
