Final edit of the film.

Client: non-profit recycling organization Fost Plus 2008 awareness campaign.

The roughs for the two films show my usual storyboarding process – a very simple one: drafting the whole camera angles and compositions in very tiny frames, on the fly, during live discussion with the director or over the phone – these where done over the phone and the help of very precise visual and written notes, so you’ll notice very little difference with the final boards.

In this case a double page holds an overview of each 30 seconds film but there are instances where you would need an entire sketchbook for a single story.

Storyboards Samples

Since 1999, I draw storyboards and concept illustrations for feature films, advertising commercials, TV shows, animation, events, spectacles historical films and documentaries.

Here you can view some of these different storyboards styles in a single pdf document. If you are looking for a storyboard artist able to work in different styles, check these to see how it might suit your project.

Storyboards can usually be delivered in a rapid turnaround time, either in digital form or hand-drawn on paper, or both.

New storyboard site

Welcome to this new site showcasing cinematic pre production works.

Film Storyboards provides with production design and visual storytelling services for films, animation and cross media projects. I draw visuals for feature films, animation, advertising, games, live shows, events, theme parks, music videos, theatre and museums.

I like sequential illustration and storyboarding represents a considerable part of my experience as an illustrator. I started out working as a commercial storyboard artist in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 1999.

From Saigon, I drew storyboards for Southeast Asia’s fast growing advertising and film scenes for the next two years. Since then, moving on, continued working as a freelancer for clients in Europe and globally.

Today, storyboarding amounts to about 1/3 of my practice, alongside illustration and art direction.

Currently based in Brussels, I travel to draw on location or work from my studio. Helping production houses, advertising agencies, animation companies and award-winning directors visualise, present and pitch their projects.

For example, a shooting storyboards can be helpful for a production to estimate the budget for special effects, that will inform VFX and SFX work and help the crew prepare and communicate complex action scenes. Storyboards sometimes involve conceptual illustrations and set design. A storyboard can also be a form of script development, an editing tool and even a marketing tool.

If you are looking for a story artist for a film production, check samples of my work in different styles. For credentials, visit the credits page to make sure your projects will be in good hands,

This site will host my portfolio, colour and black and white storyboards samples along with some notes about the works, preparatory drawings, roughs sketches etc.

In time, the site will also host storyboard templates, articles and resources about storyboarding. If you are looking for a layout template for a specific film format that you don’t see on that page, you will more likely find it on the templates shop.

This site is an ongoing project, wedding the forgotten art of old school storyboarding with contemporary digital illustration. Watch this space if you love storytelling for film, multimedia and concept art.
