The Basics
Clio, can you take a moment to fill our listeners in on who you are, and the kind of work you do?
Have you ever worked with our friend John Sanford?
What is your favorite thing about being a story/sequential artist?
Did you go to school specifically for storyboard/story art or did you start off on another path?
You have a very naturally rough style. Is that look natural to you, or did you cultivate it?
Animation Questions
How active is the director in the storyboarding process? How many other team members are involved?
Once you finish your storyboards for a project, is that the last time you touch that particular sequence?
On your movie projects, what percentage of the movie do you tend to board out, on average?
How often do you have to revise sequences?
Book Project
When I first reached out to you about CC2C you mentioned a book project. Can you tell us a bit about what you have planned?
Do you have a timeline or are you still in early planning stages?
The LAST Question… Ever… (Pay It Forward)
Can you share an artist you are a fan of for our listeners to follow?
