Rob Koo: A Senior Character Portrait by Davis Brown
The profile documentary unit at Freestyle Academy
was not only the perfect chance to enhance my creative skills but to also explore and understand the life of somebody as interesting as Rob Koo
Rob is a lead storyboard artist at DreamWorks Animation and there he faces the pressure of looming deadlines, the rapid demand for production, and the necessity to visualize and develop fresh content.
has been in the tight niche industry of animation for sixteen-plus years, and attributes a significant portion of his
success through his
devotion to SGI Buddhism and participating in its growing community. ''At SGI, we are dedicated to reaching and establishing peace through individual happiness'' (Koo).
In this profile photo, I wanted to illustrate Rob's important role at DreamWorks
with an energetic comic book-like look.
I had Rob mimic the pose of a large model version of Po the panda in the DreamWorks
Then in Photoshop, I added brightness, contrast, and a radiating glow to focus the photo on Rob
