Dave Pemberton is one of Canada’s most sought-after story artists whose career in the animation industry spans more than 25 years. In fact, Dave has been around long enough to remember working with pencils and paper!

Recently, Dave’s been storyboarding for some of Canada’s pre-eminent series like Abby Hatcher Fuzzly Catcher (Nickelodeon), Bubble Guppies (Nickelodeon), The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! (PBS/Treehouse), Johnny Test (Teletoon/Cartoon Network) & Freaktown (Teletoon).

Prior to freelance storyboarding, Dave worked in studios throughout Ontario, lending his talents to design & layout departments. He moved on to Direct several animated series including Dog City with the Jim Henson Company and Ace Venture: Pet Detective (CBS). Whether the show is 2D or 3D, broadcast or digital, Dave brings a keen eye & outstanding storytelling to each and every project.

What’s his secret sauce?

Dave’s storyboards are meals unto themselves. He is a masterful storyteller. He can draw, he can pose, he can stage. He brings characters to life and scripts into cinema. He makes a mean smoked pork shoulder too.
