Storyboard and Illustration Samples, Set Design and Graphics



I did quite a bit of work on the new Hulu series, 11.22.63 with Academy Award winning Director, Kevin Macdonald. This scene is part of the second trailer just released.

Creating a Vintage Day/ Night Backing

I needed to create a period backing for a television series that takes place in the past.

A suitable photo was sourced from the archives and we bought a high resolution file.

Toronto Street, looking north from King Street. - [between 1908 and 1909]

The photo was the cropped and coloured in Photoshop for a day version.


A night version was also needed.


Both were printed large format (12′ x 24′) and hung by the grips outside an apartment window as a shower curtain allowing each backing to be extended and shot.

Sheridan 3×3 Set Build

Screen Shot 2013-10-28 at 8.13.34 PMgarage plan w_carsgarage sketch P1110105Every year my Production Design students at Sheridan College build a studio set and then shoot 8-10 different short films on the same set. This yera we built the interior of a gas station.

These are some shots of the work in progress.

We painted a backing as well for outside the entrance.

Below a photo shop mock up of the backing.

As it turned out, we were unable to get our REAL gas pumps and we had them printed on vinyl and mounted on foam core.

They actually worked quite well in the background.

Sheridan ATVF 3×3 Set Build

A short film by Steven Chan

Set Building Basics

We were shooting on location here in toronto at the Waverly Hotel at Spadina and College. It was decided to shoot at the actual location for 2 days and then to move the crew back to the studio where we would build a section of the set.

6650086465_c7baeb2812_oThe first step was to get some detailed photos and measurements. The Key Scenic painter and Construction Manager met me at the location and we did our research getting measurements and matching colours.

P1100723 P1100727 P1100741 P1100745The next step is to come up with a floor plan that works

and situate it within the studio. Crew access and fire regulations are taken into account.

Plan 1 below.

Plan 2.

Scanned from a Xerox multifunction device(1)Below is the final plan (within reason as things can still change.)

The set went up very quickly.

All in all, a very believable set that matched the location.

Prop Antique Clock Build

clock sketchThe first step in the build is a scale drawing that is sent to the prop builder to look at and to get a quote. We were fortunate to be able to use Damian Zuch at Deville’s Workshop. Damian then built a model in Sketch Up for us to review.

The dome is actually a plastic salad bowl from the Dollar store…

The little paintings on the sides were quite specific to the story and these were farmed out to another artist (again with reference to work from)

1The paintings were completed and returned to the shop for final assembly.

These are by Denya and Jennifer.

These actually work really well. You just need to put on your glasses, sit back a little and relax your eyes. Click on the photo for a full size version.
