“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

"SHADOW OF THE HAWK"_bazillion minutes
I think this episode has seen air. If not, please don't be mad WB headhunters - I'll take it down. Written by Dwayne McDuffie, Directed by Dan Riba, Produced by Bruce Timm. I've got boxes of this stuff - mostly guys pounding the bejeezus out of each other. I'm an Act 3 guy which means lots of fighting...lots, and lots of fighting. Not so much acting moments coz I suck at it. They give that to the good people.
Unlike live action/feature film storyboards, TV animation boards are ridiculously spelled out - as in, step by step. And on an action/adventure show like JLU it's a prerquisite. My best guess is because with so much stuff going on, they want to eliminate any headaches regarding communication with the overseas production/animation. Me? I don't care - I love drawing. The only time it hurts is when the inevitable wall that is the deadline zooms over the horizon and barrels towards me.
'Cuts' are indicated by the inverted triangle on the upper left corner of the panel. 'No Scene' means...you know...no scene. 'Action' descriptions in the left box, 'Dialogue' (when applicable) is right below that.
Man, this'll take me forever to upload.
