Allie Vanaman is a Storyboard Artist and Visual Development Artist for feature and television animation at Ohio Film Group/Lengi Studios. She graduated from Columbus College of Art & Design in December 2017 with a BFA in Animation and a minor in Creative Writing. Her thesis film, "The Finvestigations of Sharklock Foams," has been screened at numerous domestic and international film festivals, including the World Animation Celebration at Sony Pictures Animation, and is the recipient of the 2017 Animation President’s Award—presented by CCAD—and an Award of Excellence—presented by the Columbus Society of Communicating Arts.
Storyboarding appeals to her passions for drawing and storytelling. She enjoys the challenges (and rewards) of conveying a film's essence through simple yet deliberate black and white sketches.
