Last year I worked on a straight to TV feature produced by Nickelodeon and Nelvana called "Wayside" based on the "Wayside School" books by Louis Sachar. My partner in crime Riccardo Durante directed the show, and I assistant directed and acted as posing and character design supervisor. YES posing...in North America!!!! I will tell you right now, there is nothing easier than posing a 'board that was 'boarded by Nick Cross and Warren Leonhardt.
Recently "Wayside" was picked up as an animated series and is being directed by Riccardo and he has got himself quite a crew together...not only have Warren and Nick come along to 'board, but add the likes of Jamie "Hobo divine" Mason as assistant director, Ian Hastings (our art director for Gruesomestein's Monsters) as art director, and Andrew Wolf and Dermot Walshe as layout/BG artists and this show is going to kick some serious ass!!!
Here are just a few scenes that I posed. I will post more in the fuuuuttuuuurre....
