Work Experience

'Break'

A heartfelt short film included in the SCAD Film Award showcase, about a boy and his dog just trying to survive. Directed by Jaki Haboon.

I worked as a layout designer, character clean-up, and animation color artist, and I enjoyed every second of it.

Color Artist

'U.P.P'

Collaborative film from 2018 that won numerous awards: The Golden Earth Film Award, Direct Monthly Online Film Festival, and the Independent Online Film Festival. The film is a comical take on two astronauts floating about in their everyday lives.

 

I worked as an asset modeler, clean-up artist, the UV and texture artist, as well as a concept and story work. It was a lot of work, but some of my favorite late nights.

'Archaic'

An interesting action scene short film of a toon character in realistic scenery. Directed by Asfandiyar Ali Aga.

I was brought on as a matte painter, brush creator, and layout designer for the short. It was a lot of fun learning how to make custom brushes to match the style and painting from such an interesting perspective.

Vert Wall

'Myth'

By request from Jaki, I was brought onto this short film last minute, as a layout designer, matte painter, and clean-up assistant. It was an attempt to save the film from a deadline crunch, though, sadly the film was still left incomplete due to a loss in animation staff.

 

The film would have been a heartbreaking retelling of the classic tale: The Minotaur.

'Doug Doug the Dancing Bug'

A 50+ page children's book created in collaboration with author and publisher JKT. The project was started on December 27, 2019 and finalized on January 1, 2020.

 

The project scope included: Designing and developing details on 40+ different characters, designing 20 layouts, painting 38 background illustrations, prepping files for publisher use, and replacing mock-up clipart with fully realized original works. Unfortunately, it was an indie run piece and lacked final publishing polish for the book layout.

About

Hi, I'm Nichole Hart, Nico for short.

I am a storyboarder and narrative artist compelled by the storytelling aspects of art, from drawing and script writing to comic books and animation. I love getting inside the minds of characters and acting out how they may respond to the various scenarios they face. For fun, I break down films and write. I also love to see the world by traveling, kayaking, whitewater rafting, and hiking.

I am looking for work in storyboards, character layouts, animation, comics, and narrative illustration.
