Hollywood storyboard artist, Adam Van Wyk, a native of Pella, will speak about his work on “The Secret Life of Pets” and other animated features at the Grand Theater this evening.
Following Van Wyk’s presentation will be a screening of the film – free to all those in attendance. Van Wyk, who has worked on some of the most successful animated movies released in the last few years, will discuss how an animated movie begins with the script and story boarding and proceeds to the final film the public enjoys. Primarily a storyboard artist, Adam’s involvement begins early on in the process and communicates the essence of each scene and character to the thousands of other artists and technicians working on the film.The program will begin at 5:30 pm today in the downstairs auditorium of the Grand Theater. Doors will open at 5:00 pm.
