Title: Bug Diaries
Services: Storyboard, concept art, background color
Company: Amazon, Lighthouse
Three unlikely bug buddies, Fly, Spider and Worm, fly, spin, and jump into all kinds of adventures in the big world around them. Imagine hopping a ride on a furry dog or dodging raindrops bigger than your house! Using their unique insect abilities, our tiny heroes find ways to help themselves and others out of sticky situations and record their stories in their bug diaries!
Worked closely with the first art director Jean Michel Boesch and director, Gilly Fogg at the very beginning of the project when the team and the studio were just starting. I helped define the final style of the backgrounds and light and colour for the show. Before the team of background colour began I was on charge of producing final concepts, style guide and background colour tutorials to help train the team on background painting.
Further in the production I moved to storyboarding where I helped define the camera use, staging and acting of our characters and the world of these little bugs. The goal was to infuse a sense of wonder in this miniature world with the camera use and establish clearly the interaction between the real and the bug world.
It was a really exciting team and project to work on and it has shaped as a very lovely show. Available on Amazon Prime Video.
