Grindstone Animated Trailer Storyboards by Nicolas "Qiqo" Stephan and Ben Thomas is a Game Maker’s Sketchbook 2021 Official Selection for Story Board representing Grindstone developed by Capybara Games and published by Capybara Games.
To announce the launch of our game Grindstone on the Nintendo Switch, the studio decided to produce an animated trailer internally, and tapped Capy artists to begin production. Nicolas “Qiqo” Stephan and Ben Thomas went to work drafting a storyboard that would plan the flow of shots and lay the groundwork for production, based on a script created by Dan Vader and Kaitlin Tremblay. The overall goal was to match the cartoon intensity of the game itself, and highlight a day in the life of player character Jorj, interspersed with gameplay footage.
Co-founded by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS), creative production company iam8bit, and communications firm, fortyseven (47), the Game Maker’s Sketchbook is a juried exhibition with aims to highlight and celebrate all forms of art related to the craft of making games.
All proceeds from print sales go to support the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and recognition of the interactive arts.
The mission of the AIAS is to promote and advance the worldwide interactive entertainment community; recognize outstanding achievements in the interactive arts and sciences; and host an annual awards show, the D.I.C.E. Awards, to enhance awareness of the interactive art form. Other special programs led by the AIAS include the AIAS Foundation which has sponsored hundreds of scholars and mentees, hosted education summits (including Amplifying New Voices), launched the first game industry 5k race, and built a growing database of mentors ready to help the future generations of industry leaders.
