Storyboards are a means to communicate. A professional storyboard artist can translate that brilliant idea you have for a commercial to your client. The clearer a storyboard is, the better it communicates. The better it communicates, the more money you save in the long run.
Why would you hire a freelance storyboard artist? Not everyone can make a decent storyboard. You have to know a fair bit of film making and have the ability to draw well. Also, a storyboard artist is a trained storyteller and can give that extra punch to your project. Even though Bart from accounting can do a fair bit of drawing, if the client doesn’t understand what you’re about to do, you will lose the sale.
How can you justify the extra cost of hiring a freelance storyboard artist? You actually save money. The storyboard artist draws out your idea and can make it easily into an animatic. An animatic is a moving storyboard. Even sound can be added to make the experience better. Your client can now visualise your idea and give comments. This way the client will feel more involved in the project. Corrections can easily be made and before you start the expensive shoot, your client will know what to expect.
How long does it take to finish a storyboard? Or an animatic? This is the good bit. Depending on the length of your project and the complexity you can have your storyboard ready the next day. Call or e-mail PARTOON EMPIRE and we get it done!

A very short and simple cartoon I made last week, just for fun.
My first professional stop motion job!
Very short though but a lot of fun to work on. I planned and directed the animation on set and did most of the preproduction. The very talented Dries Bastiaensen helped me out with building armatures and with the animation. We did some long hours…Our hand model had to come to the studio around midnight to catch some cookies. Kudos to Isabelle! We also had an amazing and patient DOP, mister Tielevisie!
We had to do a lot of post production done by Jan Daghelinckx, Kristel Dom and a tiny bit by yours truly.
So yeah…A short clip but lots of people were involved in the end 🙂
Character animation work I did recently.
I animated a couple of commercials for BOSTOEN. Production: SABOUGE, Agency: Vandekerckhove&Devos
The concept of the next clips is a gameshow with two houses as candidates. They both claim to be energy efficient houses but which one is the real one?
Tochtdichtheid; The house on the left has a bit more difficulties keeping the air inside.
The house on the left has a bit more trouble with the summer heat…
The left house has serious troubles during the cold winter!
The left house spills Energy like mad!
Let’s see which house can get more funding!

A silly little linetest. Parrots everywhere!
Test I did at the animation workshop in 2008. Still needs some polishing.
This is an animation test I did a couple of years ago. I guess I could have made it a bit less mime-like and spread the accents a bit more.
Two clips about a very boring subject! MONEY! So we had to make it interesting. I did the designs, animation, compositing and audio but needed some help from a colleague because of the tight deadline. I used Toon Boom Animate, After effects and a pile of cheap pizzas.
A commercial for Bostoen. We see an old house, wasting a lot of energy and it gets kicked out of the screen by a new, passive house that doesn’t spill energy at all. More and more of those houses pop up etc…Took me 7 days to finish. 3 days of designing and storyboarding and 4 days of animation in Toon Boom animate. Copyright Sabouge.
I made this intro for a TV-show aired on Belgian television. It’s actually one of the better shows starring one of my favorite Belgian actors Frank Focketyn. I did the storyboarding, Backgrounds, animation and compositing. Copyright Sabouge.
My first animation post!
Here’s a clip I animated at the Animation workshop in Denmark back in 2008.
