following are a few xeroxed storyboard drawings DAAN JIPPES did for BALTO in 1993. daan used a black prismacolor pencil and the size of each drawing is about A5. they are not in order and not complete. his boards were of such high quality, all the characters absolutely on model, that they could have been used for a comic strip.

Wow, these are great. Thanks for sharing Hans.

This semester Daan is helping me out with my internship. (probably the best mentor any animation student who wants to become a storyboard artist could wish for.)

I have been asking him about his storyboards but I so far I hadn’t seen any. The quality of these is amazing! He really is such a superior draftsman. Do you have more???

from hans –

Stunningly awful and ugly film, but these boards are terrific.

It’s not a great film overall, but I wouldn’t call it awful and certainly not ugly. Why do you think it is ugly ?

I always thought Balto had the strongest story of all the Amblimation films. I love this, Hans, but isn’t a Prismacolor just a pencil? I wasn’t aware they made pens…

from hans –
you are right nancy, corrected the pencil already…

I had to sell one of these storyboard panels on eBay a while back. But they were extremely well made!
