Style Sheets for Production

What are these? They are known as 'Style Guides' and they are the bible of any animated film -these little puppies are the 'how to' in any visual medium.

Normally the art director/production designer are the ones that create these pages that explain to the crew how to easily (hah!) follow his design vision. I was graciously given this assignment from Sam Michlap- As art director, he was swamped with work and told me to 'Go for it .... I have complete trust in your abilities on this.' I have to admit- I LOVED this assignment. My one rule of thumb is that if the viewer can't understand it in 1/2 of a second what I am trying to explain- then I haven't done my job correctly. I guess it comes from growing up with a bunch of future engineers, physicians and attorneys- sometimes you have to dumb things down to get your point across (they being the dense ones, not me- LOL!).

Oh man thank you for posting these! I always wonder what the style guide looks like for every animation film-its a shame they don't release it after the film.
