RICHARD RIOS

 
I'm an artist specializing in storyboards for any and all live-action and cinematic interactive media.
My BFA is in Directing, so I understand composition and creating shots that are interesting and actually shootable.

BIO

Born and raised in LA, and I'm still here.


I'm a storyboard artist for any and all live action media, but sometimes also cinematic sequences, sometimes interactive media, and sometimes animation. I've also been known to draw a poster or two.

In 2013 I graduated with a BFA in Cinema Directing; from a film school, not an art school. This has translated to a storyboard that focuses more on shot composition, angles, and sequential construction - as opposed to the art of a single frame. This type of board generally helps a lot more on set ...or so Ive been told.

Ive worked on literally oodles of ad jobs, but am always looking to take on new and interesting projects in film and video games.

I also like Cheez-its and rum, but not together.

Let me know what you need and I'll see what I can do!
