Storyboard frames...






I found these storyboard frames from a late '80s Chrysler pitch while cleaning out my files today. The only reason they remain in good condition is because I used them as portfolio pieces. I was responsible for the layout, pencils and inks. And my then GEM Studio co-worker, Tom Fluharty handled the color rendering. I'm glad these images survived, I always felt proud of this project, and I was very happy with the outcome of this collaboration.
Update: After looking at these frames for a while I've come to the conclusion that these are not the original boards that Tom and I produced together. They're sample frames that I made for my portfolio based on the originals. We never had artwork returned to us from Ad Agencies, unless it was for revisions.

Thanks, Jim. Were you at GEM when we did this assignment? Merci Craig & Dorota!!

And yes, Ryan, this was a spot for Chrysler, I believe. If I remember correctly it was first aired during the Super Bowl. That's probably why you remember it.

Hi, Tom! These sample storyboard frames are a huge indication of what I learned from you on the original project. I was lucky enough to have color copies, so I was able to re-create your rendering approach for these portfolio pieces. I've always liked these frames, and was amazed to find them while rummaging through some envelopes a few weeks ago.

Love your latest magazine covers, beautiful, solid stuff!
