The Making of Cloud Country Film No.1 is the first in a series of four short films that will follow the making of Cloud Country from early sketches all the way through final illustrations.
When Noah was young he imagined that he would spend his life in a small cottage in the English countryside painting and drawing alone. Yet he has found that collaborating with others has been the greatest joy and made him a far stronger artist than he could have ever been on his own.
Noah’s experience includes advertising design and art direction; as well as matte painting, visual development, art direction, and production design for studios such as Industrial Light & Magic, PDI/DreamWorks, and Pixar Animation Studios. Always striving to find new way to tell stories, Noah’s first illustrated picture book Cloud Country, a collaboration with Bonny Becker, will be published in Fall 2014.
