It seems like the entire storyboard crew has slowly been infected by Attack On Titan fever. Eugene’s cube wall is but one more symptom.
On that day, Korra crew received a grim reminder.
And that day was Tuesday.
We can’t forget the Female Titan!! Heh heh heh.
peek a boo ~
Hey everyone, the network decided to move the show to a later time slot, now on FRIDAYS AT 8:30PM. The premieres are doing well against overall cable, but that earlier time slot is pretty much a ratings graveyard so the numbers are down compared to Book 1. I never worry about this stuff too much, but obviously the network needs to. (I’m not sure why they moved it from Saturday mornings in the first place, where it was doing quite well, but there is usually some larger plan in place.)
Whatever the case, the episodes are still flying off the virtual shelves on iTunes and watched a lot on Nick.com. They always seem to find people eventually, which is what matters most to me (hopefully they’ll patch things up with Netflix or find some comparable digital streaming outlet soon). But I would hate for people to get confused and frustrated this Friday night if they don’t know about the change, so I’m trying to help get the word out. Thanks!

To give you a sense of just how long it takes to make animation, and how much overlap there is in our production, here is a photo from a meeting this past Monday to kick off the storyboards for the first episode of Book 4––and we’re not even finished with the last episodes of Book 2 yet! Colin Heck (seated next to Mike on the right, and blocking Ryu) is directing the Book 4 premiere episode, and he also directed the Book 2 premiere episode we are screening tomorrow at the Korra San Diego Comic-Con panel.
I’M SORRY I’M BLOCKING YOUR PRECIOUS RYU, BRYAN
I think this is the first picture of my whole storyboarding team together, which is exciting. Over on the left next to Bill is Olga Ulanova, my assistant director. Next to her is Natasha Wicke, one of my three storyboard artists. I call the two of them “The White Russians,” because they’re both blonde and have Russian-y names (as far as I know, Natasha’s not Russian at all). Then Lauren and Joaquim, obviously, whatever, and perched on Joaquim’s shoulder is Eugene Lee, who has added a creepy Mako next to the creepy Bolin he drew outside my office for book 3. Then Sean Gantka, production person extraordinaire, then over there on the right behind Ryu is Hyunjoo Song, who’s been on the show since book 1, but is new to my team.
Hopefully this helps you guys identify people next time Ryu decides to draw a caricature of the whole crew.
Since our team is an unprecedented 60% female, I call us Colin’s Angels (plus Eugene)
Hi Colin. <3
