Last Minute Storyboards

Before I traveled to San Francisco over the weekend, I crammed in some storyboard work for Adrenaline Motion Picture's upcoming web series in development:
























This kind of storytelling needs camera-intimate eye-level work, and good close-ups.

I must say that though I've many projects lined up (and trying to line up) the only consistent project is that of my school. I would call it my "day job", but that sounds like I stop doing it at night. I am always thinking about HOW and WHY, night and day, job or no job. With students I get the high level of personal interaction I require (and admittedly rusty at), I get to pursue things that fit comfortably in the classroom. I squeamishly submit that I may be in the right place as a teacher. I would have never, in my wildest dreams, thought myself a teacher in the Midwest. But here I am. I've certainly been afraid of genuine grand opportunities in the past (like my Pixar Interview of February 96, the "one that got away"), but it seems I've ended up here. And unless something historic or career-shattering happens, I imagine this is where I'll always be.
