Head of Story Test (2019)

This is a test I did for a Head of Story position at Kuku Studios in Berkeley, CA. They hired another artist in the end, but this test got me an interview, and I was happy with how it turned out. The show (Go!Go! Cory Carson/Netflix) is developed in-house at Kuku and each episode is written by the board artist. The brief for the test was only: 'It’s a hot summer day and the Carsons are enjoying a dip in the Bumperton Hills public swimming pool. Cory’s determined to try his hand at the high dive board, but he comes to find that it’s a lot harder than it looks.All work here (story, script, backgrounds, etc) is my own. Below the animatic (no audio) click 'read more' to view thumbnails and writing I did during the brainstorming process.
