Storyboards Part 3

These are some of my favorites, as there are some humorous differences between the concept and what became the final animation. "Leonardo Leads" is lampooned by the fact that the other three turtles appear to be running from a giant robot (Krang's Android?). And Michelangelo's "Party Dude" dance seems to show him in a padded asylum room rather than a Disco-Fever dance floor.

Heh, can you imagine a respectably-budgeted direct-to-video TMNT feature produced by Chung in an unashamedly "anime" style? That would be epic.

It'd be so cool. I can imagine Netflix wanting something like that. I think there is a ray of hope we may get something interesting there, seeing as they are working with Nickelodeon and have shown a strong interest in adult animation. Not holding my breath, but maybe they say "Rise of the TMNT didn't work out so well, but we've been having a lot of success with our animation aimed at teens/adults."

So far you are the only one.

Also, keep in mind - those are supposed to be rough draft, they are not supposed to look super good or polished.

And if anything, those storyboards remind me very much how Turtles looked in some Mirage comic books.

The beauty is in the storyboarding and the cinematic nature of it. The perspectives or the way the "camera" behaves. There is a great sense of motion in both the linework and the camera movement.

Chung also wrote in a recent post (his post on the Rugrats intro) that when he was in charge of directing an animation sequence himself, he would usually do the storyboards way rougher (not "polished") than if he was handing the job off to another team.

Right on. It's purposely rough, but very dynamic.
