Todd Jacobsen Future Worm Disney

  • Client: Disney XD

  • Work Performed: Storyboard Revisions

  • Project Date: 2015

I had an absolute blast working on “Future-Worm!” a Disney XD series that (sadly) lasted only a single season. This was one of the most relaxed and fun-loving crews I’d ever worked with, with an alcohol- and snack-fueled “Game Night” every Friday. As a storyboard revisionist on this show, my job was to provide new story panels when existing sections of one of an episode’s three segments needed changes as a result of the editing process. Sometimes my tasks meant making relatively minor changes (like repositioning characters or altering acting poses), and other times my duties necessitated complete story panel overhauls in short sequences (due to dialog or staging substitutions). I received credit on all 21 episodes, and because two of the 60 segments required an unusual amount of revisions, I shared full storyboarding credits on “The World According to Larp” and “Mecha-Muck Wars 2” with two other storyboard revisionists. For the segment titled “Go Help Yourself,” Supervising Director Pete Michels asked me to come up with a short but complete board sequence for the segment’s epilogue. I felt the dialogue track had a nice little bit of acting, and because I knew it would be a chance for me to shine just a bit, I was more than happy to oblige.

On another occasion, Pete asked if I could tighten up one of Storyboard Supervisor Mike Morris’ insert scenes for "Robo-Carp-Alypse.” Pete really loved all of Mike’s superbly executed drawing elements, but wanted to have the action a bit shorter and more reminiscent of the scene in “Iron Man” where Tony Stark rockets down out of the sky and lands in Afghanistan. Being already familiar with the specific timing of Pete’s request (see the notes for my "IronMan DVD Proof of Concept"), I identified and isolated ALL of Mike’s elements, and rearranged them in a new Storyboard Pro timeline (with a hard-hitting camera shake for extra effect).
