About cineman

My background is storyboard for television animation commercials as well as concept development and teaching storyboard.

Post Wondercon

I got back from Wondercon after a six hour drive up from LA. The good part about Wondercon was that it was in Los Angeles. The bad part about Wondercon was that it was in Los Angeles.

When I arrived to set up my table I found my table had been stolen by someone who didn’t want to pay for an extra table, table cloth and trash strewn on the ground and stacks of boxes in front my space. I talked to four different people and waited two hours for another table before I could set up.


After setting up things went more smoothly and my sales were quadruple what they were last year in Anaheim.


The highlight of the con for me was an artist who brought in an old edition of Cinematics Storyboard Workshop dog eared and worn and having me sign it after what was obviously many years of use. That made me feel very good indeed about the book!

Storyboard Class Renewed


Thanks to everyone who attended my storyboard class at Sierra College. The positive evaluations resulted in the school asking for another class next term. Yay!

As always, any students who attended the class can email me any time with any question about storyboarding or the business.

Thanks again!




I have a small press table at Wondercon this April 3-5 at SP-044. Please stop by and say Hi!

Visual Story Workshop

Storyboarding for Film, Animation
and Video Games


4 sessions starting April 9th

This is a four week  non credit pre-visualizing (previs) workshop for individuals interested in storyboarding for film or adapting a story, children’s book or concept for film or animation. The course covers developing concepts for presentation, creating storyboards and animatics and an overview of film direction. Film clips and animatics will be reviewed to discuss scene construction, action and different cinematic approaches to film. The  instructor will also demonstrate and review digital software used in the industry for previs and several low cost or free alternatives.

Note:  I use class examples from my book on storyboarding because it’s the material I know best.  I  do not  promote my book as part of the class or recommend students purchase the book for the course. It’s a policy I follow every class I teach.

CFAA Meet 02/18/2015

Wonderful meet with http://www.capitalfilmarts.org/ in Sacramento with independent film makers. The take away: Worry less about funding your film, attaching talent to sell it. Find people who will help you to make a film with you and just make it. Sell a script for five hundred and get a credit which pays off more than you think in the future.

Teaching more Storyboard in April
