El Tigre Storyboard Promo

video

So, I've been storyboarding for a couple of months now on El Tigre and it has been the hardest, but most rewarding job I've had. I just finished my third episode and am getting used to pitching in front of everybody. But a while back on my first board, on my first thumbnail pitch, Nickelodeon decided they wanted to shoot a promo of it. I'm pretty sure it had nothing to do with me, but I just happened to be the next board artist in the rotation to pitch. To pitch my first board to a full camera crew along with supervising crew members was nerve-racking to say the least. But somehow I got through it, and it turned out pretty well.

Above is the full promo that they edited. It's interesting to see how they took a 45 min pitch and whittled it down to 30 seconds or less. Of course I find the edits to be pretty funny since I know which audio parts they cut and placed over other video parts. I even had to go into the recording booth weeks later to do some added v.o., so that was pretty cool. And even though it's kind of embarrassing to watch yourself pitch, I think it turned out great. The promo is airing right now on Nickelodeon, but I haven't caught it on tv yet.

Below is a short companion promo.
