'Channel Indents" Director - Chris Clark Sky Television
'The need for storyboards to communicate a vision clearly is more vital in the pitching and prep stages of production than ever.Client's want to 'see their ad' and button it down before committing to it.
Owen creates beautiful boards, clearly conveying your aesthetic and tone, to your team and client. He's fast and a great collaborator, bringing insight and excitement to the pre-production process.'
Kapiti Ice Cream
A fun board to render; a Robber’s Dog commission.
Another good idea, involving a great product and the right acting talent. Director Gaysorn Thavat once again created a wonderful TVC.
A personal favourite.
Nivea Skin Cream
A neat idea, requiring an extensive board.
Robber’s Dog (Auckland) rose to the challenge and director Gaysorn Thavat filmed with an international team in Romania
Simple or complex, pencil or pen, there are so many ways to tell your story.
Black and white or colour, whatever suits?

Please don’t ask the writer how many he may have rendered. Importantly, they’re always fun to do, telling clients’ important stories.
Where to start? Everything from the simplest renderings to full blown onscreen presentations, you name it. Not to forget book illustration and kids’ books with people like the late Jon Gadsby; his ‘Toi Toi’ series. Here is only a very small sample of what can be done.
Special characters can be designed for television commercials and gaming too. How about that free-flowing first idea for a product or perhaps a showcase venue, a set maybe?
We all like a laugh and cartoons are the common visual medium. Quite apart from personal projects there has always been a strong commercial interest in special characters and their antics.
Whole books and calendars alone have featured cartoon characters and products.
Again, key characters can be designed for television, animation and gaming.
If you’re in tourism or local bodies, you will understand their usefulness in introducing local venues, tourist spots and so on. They’re invaluable to for explaining major local projects in a friendlier way for local rate-payers and other interested parties. Uses for fun-maps will never go away.
Are your tourist promotions becoming dull? Run out of ideas to sell that big scheme? Fun-maps may be your answer.
