• Friendship is Magic Storyboard Artists Breakdown


    With all this talk of Jim Miller floating around from our recent Twitter plugs, a bit more storyboarder information is more than welcome!  

    Mutating Raven over on Deviant Art recently dropped this really interesting look at the different people working on each episode.  I'm sure everyone has their own favorite, so it's nice to finally toss some names into the mix for each of them!

    Below the break, you will find both season one, and up to A Friend Indeed" for season two, along with each of the story boarders that worked on their respective episodes. 




    SEASON ONE

    Alright so here's the list for season 1. I'm not sure how they directorial duties were distributed since Lauren was still in the mix, so here's *just* the board artists. Of note here is that the boarding duties were more split-down-the-middle than in season 2, where the Senior/Junior system took over:

    SEASON TWO

    As I've stated before, season 2 was done with 1 lead storyboard artist and 1 junior artist paired together. The idea being to give the episodes more cohesion (I think.. Don't quote me!)
