Getting Started in Story

This circle is focused on helping entry level story artists break into their first jobs, as well as assist those who are starting their first jobs and answering questions they may have about applying their skills in a professional environment.

This class will be part storyboard education and portfolio plussing, part applying those skills to your first job, and Q&A opportunities for mentees to ask about how they further develop their boarding skills to get that first job (or keep that first job). Students should be 0-1 years in the industry, at the earliest their last year of college (or an equivalent portfolio if not at traditional college).

Abigail Davies

I’m a Storyboard Artist who has been in the animation industry for 6+ years working in both TV and Feature. I’ve worked on shows such as Guillermo Del Toro’s Tales of Arcadia, Spirit: Riding Free, the upcoming Samurai Rabbit Chronicles: Usagi Yojimbo, and the upcoming Skydance feature Spellbound. In my off hours I live in the desert outskirts of LA and am being bullied by my two horses so please join my circle and save me from them.
