What is your name and your current occupation?
My name is Kyle A Carrozza and I’m seeking new storyboard artist work. (I have to state my unemployment loudly, or people will assume I’m working and I’ll miss out on work. This has been my experience lately.)

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
Nothing super interesting. I used to scan volumes of encyclopedias for digital archiving. I spent quite a while working for a company that bills for ER doctors.

 

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
Getting to do my own short, MooBeard the Cow Pirate for Nickelodeon/Frederator for their “Random! Cartoons” show so early on was quite a thrill. Working on “Fanboy & Chum Chum” was tough at times, but a really great gig. I hope someday Nickelodeon airs the episodes I storyboarded. I’m very proud of how far my webcomic, Frog Raccoon Strawberry has come from where it started. I’m a huge proponent of learning by making things, and Strawberry has certainly helped me do that. A webcomic is a good place for trial and error.

 

How did you become interested in animation?
I found that interest very early on just being a kid watching what was on. I watched lots of cartoons as a kid, and I remember one specific day when I was Continue…

What is your name and your current occupation?
I’m a storyboard artist at Bento Box on Bob’s Burgers.

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
Ha! I was a Tatto Artist, A line cook at a number of restaurants, and I got paid to watch movie screenings.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
It was really fun to work on Despicable Me 2 doing storyboards. I really got to flex my creativity and have fun. the director let me add gags and take the action in crazy directions just to see what I would come up with. LEGO:Star Wars The Empire Strikes Out (at Threshold Animation) was really great because I got to finally work on a Star wars project AND we got to make fun of it.

How did you become interested in animation?
I grew up on classic Warner Brothers and Tex Avery shorts. They used to show those on TV. Then in college I would Continue…
