So, thinking about CLONE HIGH at lunch- we watched this one again. I storyboarded the first half of this show and Paul Bouchard boarded the second half.
It strikes me now how simple the art direction is on this show. There’s lots of clear silhouettes and strong character posing. And of course it’s FUNNY. The writing reminds me of COMMUNITY and PARKS AND REC.
The creator directors, Chris Miller and Phil Lord have gone on to do more great things including CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, one of my favourite animated feature films. They just directed the LEGO MOVIE.
Here’s a recent interview with Miller and Lord talking about Clone High.

Goodbye cherry tree.
This shot was taken in 2009. This year there were only one or two cherries. Almost no leaves left now.This tree must be at least 60 years old.
She’s giving me that look again: ‘Get up from the computer and let’s do something!’
