Storyboard for 150 Piece Kit. This was our longest board. The outline was a juicy one, and were a lot of themes to cover. There was this scene that got cut that was one of my favorites, where Benson looks at a picture of himself as a young man and the photo suddenly comes to life. Younger Benson tells older Benson to never stop rockin’. Benson says, “I won’t man.”
Actually this episode was pretty personal to me, as an artist who somehow ended up in an IT career 3 years ago. I was sure that was where I was going to be the rest of my life, but instead of being angsty about it I had a lot of pride in doing my job and doing it well.
Also, yes, Thomas had about 400% more lines in the original version.
