  1. Pleasant fetal transmogrification day!

  2. Happy birthday man! Hope to see you pop in from time to time still. ^^

  3. Hi guys, Wardomatic here. I'm popping my head in to say that I had the great honor to work on this episode! I'm a Maud fan now. For the record, I boarded out the first half of the episode, and the fantastically talented Sherann Johnson (she's been in the industry for YEARS - worked on Ed Edd and Eddy, among others) did the 2nd half. My favorite thing to board out was the dichotomy between Pinkie Pie and Maud. Both are so very different, making the acting and poses a lot of fun. ENJOY! PS: sorry, can't respond to any questions here since I'm currently working on S8 stuff. SO BUSY. bye!
  4. Happy Birthday, Mr. Ward! ^ ^

      Thank you, Vulcan! Sorry I'm late. Been busy!

  5. Yay! Finally I can say that I worked on an episode for Season 7. *WHEW* The suspense was killing me!
  6. This was probably my favorite episode to storyboard, along with The Times They Are a Changeling. It was crazy hectic working on it, though, as I boarded out all the flashback stories each of the ponies told (in their own viewpoints). Was a LOT of fun doing expressions for Applejack and Pinkie Pie, and interesting to see how each of the ponies viewed each other. To answer your question, ggg-2 - RASHOMON is a classic film from 1950, directed by Akira Kurosawa. It's considered a classic because of the way the story is laid out: there's an event that happened and it's told by three different people - with three different versions. Now, they call it the "Rashomon effect" - and P.P.O.V.'s story is done like that. It's a pretty fun technique, story-wise, as we get to see interesting characterization for each pony telling their version of the story. For reference for this episode, I watched RASHOMON (would've been my 2nd time) and took notes and sketched out some staging and layouts for possible ideas. I had some interesting boards that borrowed heavily from the film at one point in the MLP story, but it proved to be taking up too much time. However, sketching from the film did help me get in the right mindset and helped with other staging, etc.
  7. I was one of the storyboard artists for this episode. As you probably well know, each MLP episode has two board artists. The other one for this ep was Hanna Lee. That's not the part I was referring to.
  8. I worked on this episode! And, for the record, the Zap2It's description does indeed have a typo. That's all I'm going to say there.

  10. Yes, the song was the first major challenge for me since it was important to get timing and pacing right as well as make sure that the audience reads Applebloom's emotional state. What was fun was boarding out all the dance moves for AB and Tender Taps. Especially when AB bumps into all the other dancers! That was a lot of fun. Yes! I referenced Gene Kelly AND Donald O'Connor for both of those dance moves. We wanted something BIG and what better way than to do a huge backflip a la "Make 'em Laugh"? I had fun boarding those sequences.
  11. *Hisses and slithers through your profile* :P

  12. Hi guys! I hope you all liked this episode! It was a lot of fun to board some of it as it was my very first MLP episode ever to board! If you guys have any questions - ones that do not require me to break my NDA - then have at it. I'll try to answer them as best as I can. In the meantime, I did answer a good amount of questions over at the 2nd Q&A thread, in case you're wondering: https://mlpforums.com/topic/150185-ward-jenkins-qa-20/
  13. An encore I see. Well, It is splendid to have you back around here Mr. Ward. I hope for your sojourn to be as enjoyable as the last one.

      Thanks! I pop my head in here on the MLPforums from time to time. :)

  15. Hi guys - Ward here. So, thought I'd say that yes, these are real titles and synopsis for these episodes. In fact, one of them is the first episode I storyboarded! 604, actually.
