Andrés "Drew" García-Price
Andrés "Drew" García-Price, a lifelong artist, has been putting his storyboarding bag of tricks together for over ten years. He comes to storyboarding from his love of film and storytelling. He comes to illustration from a lifelong love of comics, pulp art, and his ongoing efforts to get the images in his head onto the page (at first, and then later into the digital realm)...
Drew enjoys the process of translating ideas from the director’s mind to the page. He loves collaborating – bouncing ideas back and forth, filling in, and generating ideas. Every professional relationship is different; in some the director has the ideas already very firmly in mind, in many the director is still considering different avenues as things start to crystallize. Drew feels that his job is making that relationship work, and understanding the project’s point of view, to be able to work creatively within it.
Drew comes from a family of artists by way of his father. He was Costa Rican and among his uncles were writers, painters, sculptors and architects. A lot of natural born storytellers. Drew's mother’s people are Hoosier and in Drew's own words, "as far as I can tell there are no artists among them – other than she herself who is an amazing event producer who has been bringing spectacle and ceremony to one and all from the start, beginning with back yard shows as a child."
Feature films that have benefitted from Drew's vision and image-based storytelling include, SOUTHLAND TALES, SUSPECT ZERO, DONNIE DARKO, R.I.P.D and SUICIDE SQUAD. Drew has also worked on television programs including LIE TO ME, KATH & KIM and MEDIUM.
