I’m an Animation Major from the Chicago suburb of Western Springs. A little-known fact about me is my name, “Sam C,” happens to be a mnemonic word for what I am all about.
The “S” stands for “Stories.” Emotionally-driven stories have always inspired me, and I wish to share my own compelling tales with the world. The “A” is for “Art.” I cannot help doodling expressive characters all over my notes; I simply enjoy the challenge of creating a playful, stunning, or creepy piece in a variety of mediums. The “M” is for “Music.” Crafting melodies comes as second nature to me. Listen to my music here. Finally, the “C” is for “Comedy.” Humor is essential to my craft, and I could never go a day without it.
And there you have it. Now you know why I always sign my art as “Sam C.”
I look forward to a future in entertainment, whether that is storyboarding kids' shows, performing live songs, or producing my own films.
A basic, modern, romantic tune sweet enough to give you cavities. "Sappy Song" is a parody of the soundtracks you typically hear during the trailer for a romantic-comedy film. I made this in Garageband for my stop-motion film on Vimeo called "Surfing for a Soulmate."
This board details the story of a fictional romance trailer. Sergio is fed up with being lonely until he meets Manny at work. This is the best storyboard I have made to date. Check it out!
