LEGEND OF KORRA: 'A LEAF IN THE WIND' STORYBOARDS by LeSeanThomas LEGEND OF KORRA: 'A LEAF IN THE WIND' STORYBOARDS by LeSeanThomas
During my stay at STUDIO MIR in Seoul, South Korea, i was working as part of the core story team on Nickelodeon's hit series "The Legend of Korra." Above are a couple collections of ROUGH STORYBOARDS i did from my ACT 1 section from episode 2 " A LEAF IN THE WIND."

PROCESS: Rough Storyboards are the first pass the artist gets to make from the script. We have 2 weeks to direct our sections and turn around our act which is about 10-14 pages of script, normally. Once reviewed by the directors, notes, changes and improvements are given. We are then to apply those notes within another two weeks as we CLEAN UP for final boards/animatics.

Here, Korra adorably laments to Tenzin her inability to Air bend. Tenzin, calmly reassures her it'll be okay with practice. As part of Story team 2, It was our first epsiode to work on( i handled from the beginning of act 1 all the way until Korra sneaks out from airtemple island, when she jumps in the water) and we hadn't gotten all the final model/costume materials just yet, but as you can tell some of the energy and shots still remained in the final (the bit where Tenzin tenderly fixes Korra's Air Temple Uniform was added by Joaquim and executed by RYU KIHYUN in the final animatic). There's also dialogue/scene that was deleted in the final animatic edit.

Nice.
For that perspective shot (to the far left) did you use a ruler?
Or freehand?

I just love it. Great work, really great work. It's also interesting seeing how the first draft changes to become the final animation.

Characters and animation in LoK are awesome, all the team make an amazing work with it.
Now that you know the process, workflow, etc. I must ask you, why backgrounds are so crappy?!

Great to see these.
Your boards are always pretty energetic and suggest a lot of movement.
For this board, was there a rough under-drawing before you added the final lines?

i want to be an animator when i get older,
and my bold dream is to get accepted into Pixar.

i personally would rather do 2-D than 3-D, so this is an amazing piece where i learn a lot.

thank you! i'm excited now. :excited:
