I can finally post these boards I did for Guardians back in 2009. I worked on the first version of this movie, before Jeff Lynch was removed as director. I had a lot of fun in story meetings with Jeff, the Head of Story Chris Appelhans, and Ryan O'Loughlin for my first three months on the film as we brainstormed the mythology, themes, character and story arcs. It was a real learning experience and super creative. I left the project after six months to go work on the Dragon Holiday Special: "The Gift of the Night Fury". But I miss those days of being holed up in a small conference room and wrapping our minds around such an epic story, and I'm really grateful to Jeff for being included in those meetings.
