TESTIMONIALS

"Having an artist like Ben create detailed narrative storyboards, is something I hope every client can experience. Ben is a true storyteller and total pro. His gags are funny, images are clear, convey emotions, and he always comes in on time. With Ben the story pitches are snappier and he creates a solid blueprint for other artists to follow. I look forward to seeing more of his work in the future."

“Ben McMillan’s work on When I Grow Up! for TVOKids was invaluable. His visual storytelling ability, well-composed and clear illustrations, and knack for incorporating humour and emotion into his art were all a crucial part of what made the show tick. Ben not only has the creative vision to get the job done, but an unassailable work ethic and ability to collaborate. I plan to work with him again.”

“Ben McMillan understands story and is able to showcase this through his illustrations. He is a strong visual storytelling collaborator on our film and television productions. Ben understands film language but also has a great knowledge base in comedic and dramatic beats through his cartooning background. He is a pleasure to work with and extremely reliable with deadlines.”
