Nick Leong

Storyboard Artist, Flying Bark Productions

Nick started his animation career when he failed a high school computer class. After a week of Adobe Flash his classmates learned web design and film editing while Nick, completely distracted by this shiny new toy, instead spent the second half of the semester creating terrible cartoons for Newgrounds, ignoring his teacher, and receiving failing marks from both.

A few years after he would repeat this mistake and fail animation school (successfully returning the following year).

Now with a decade of study under his belt, five years work experience, and an unhealthy dose of industry cynicism, Nick has once again found himself in over his head storyboarding on the latest Flying Bark project Lego Monkie Kid, following his attempts at animating on Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Also, I guess he's participating in TAAFI? Weird.
