PLANES FIRE & RESCUE: The Art of Story (and Drawing Dipper!)

During my visit to Los Angeles a few weeks ago, I not only had the opportunity to a press junket for Disney’s MALEFICENT, but also PLANES FIRE & RESCUE, opening in theatres on July 18th!
It is always a joy visiting Disneytoon Studios, which is always decorated according to the most recent film! It felt like a real national park!
During the press junket, our group separated into four different “pods”, with each pod participating in a specific interview or activity. Today I’m chatting about the “The Art of Story” pod with Art Hernandez (head of story) & Lawrence Gong (story artist) on visual storytelling and storyboarding.
Art and Lawrence took us through the process of storyboarding (which completely blows my mind!) and the importance of doing so in order to piece the story together properly. The talent of these two men was crazy and they attempted to teach our group how to draw “Dipper” (Julie Bowen).
The guys went step by step through the drawing of Dipper, taking it easy and slow for us amateur artists!
All I can say is, I won’t quite my day job.
Stay tuned for more adventures at Disneytoon Studios in the coming weeks! And, of course, make sure you check out PLANES FIRE & RESCUE on July 18th!
