BLACK DYNAMITE ANIMATION PRODUCTION by LeSeanThomas BLACK DYNAMITE ANIMATION PRODUCTION by LeSeanThomas
Here's some sneak peeks of some of what i do on the #1 Cable show on Sundays in it's time slot: Atop, The white sheets underneath are Key Animator Mr. Ha. The drawings you see on top on the blue correction paper are mine. As for the yellow sheets below. It's my job as Producer/ Supervising Director to guide the show visually on all aspects from character design, the props, color, storyboards to what you see here.

As animation supervisor overseas, my jobs consist of approving/revising all layouts/key animation to maintain drawing quality and model/style consistency before in betweens as well as checking colored/composited scenes before shipping during the main production process.

Good luck on your projects!!!

Hi LeSean, I know this is a boring question, but do you colour the cells in Photoshop, or edit them only? Just curious.

The Pilot 2 years ago, yes. The tv series main animation production is outsourced here in South korea, all hand-drawn traditional animation.

interesting. ive always wondered, do multiple artists work on a single frame at once, or donthey work seperately?

Usually, 1 animator works on whatever scenes that they are given. Sometimes, they're scenes are revised, which are represented here by the yellow sheets of paper. Most of the time, most animators have only enough time to work on their own shots, and do not have time to work on anything else. Most shows have other animators who do the in-between shots that are based on the lead animation, and serve to make the animation smoother, but they usually don't touch the lead animation. 

I hope that answers your question.
