    Hi, my name is Joanna Hayden.
    In the 1990’s I qualified with a Diploma in Classical Animation from the European College of Animation, Ballyfermot and have since worked as a 2D Animator/storyboard artist for live action T.V. as well as a storyboard artist in various studios at home and abroad (Brown Bag Studios, Disney Paris, Bardell Studios, Canada, to name a few.)
    With Walt Disney Paris, I was an FX Assistant for almost one year. It was a mind blowing introduction to animation which has given me a real love for this work. There then there was Brown Bag Studios as a 2D Animator/storyboard artist which is a fun and hectic Studios to work for, something like I imagine Warner Brothers Studios was like of the 1930s!!
    I like to work on a project from start to finish and take a real interest in the ideas and concepts at the beginning of a project. But my real love is the actual process storyboard there is nothing like the satisfaction of seeing a scene I am working on come to life. Also, it’s the people I’ve worked with who have make it so much fun to be involved with the films, TV series’ I’ve worked on. I really enjoy working a part of a team.
    I have experience of various computer programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Flash, Illustrator, After Effects and some 3D Light Wave. I have also worked freelance as a storyboard artist for live action T.V.
