Melanie Barreto
United States
Storyboard artist available for new occupational adventures. If you think were a good fit contact me via email at

Current Residence: California
I am a storyboard artist located in the San Francisco bay area, looking to start my adventurous career.   

I offer my Storyboarding experience that includes the following:

• Create boards that implement story, emotion and movement
• Expertise in staying on model and style of production
• Clear pitching of boards to a large group
• Use of correct storyboard language
• Use of arrows
• Working with large production groups communicating progress
• Use of varying aspect ratios
• Ability to reach deadlines
• Competency to take and follow directions of production supervisors
• Talent in actualizing the vision of the director
• Life drawing and character design skill
• Brought a short animation to completion (that was well received by the Brooklyn Animation Block Party 2011/ OIAF after party 2011)

In addition to my storyboarding competence, I have extensive experience working on collaborative projects to completion, hands-on/skills training, and company & departmental policies/guidelines.  Furthermore, I have specialized training in sculpture giving myself the ability to implement a characters form in three dimensional spaces.

I am an extremely driven individual who is comfortable in performing a multitude of tasks having executed timelines with efficiency and precision.  I have highlighted, below, additional strengths I possess that I feel is vital to this position:

• Excellent communication and organization skills
• Thinking outside the box to promote the greatest creativity possible
• Proactive, flexible, dedication, willingness to learn, and a team

why thanks, your your comic pages are pretty awesome themselves. I'm actually trying to narrow my concentration at the time onto storyboarding. So framing in comic form is very interesting to me.

Thanks! Most of my work is digital now, though the gouache was fun for a while. No cleanup involved.
