Timothy "Tim" Burgard

Film / Entertainment Design


I graduated from ArtCenter College of Design as an Illustration major in 1982 and I have been teaching storyboarding for Film at ArtCenter since fall 2013. My career has expanded from my beginning in the comic book industry to animation, commercials, gaming and film. I have been serving on the Illustrators council of Local 800 (formally 790) since 2008. My animation career included work from all the animation studios, most notably Gargoyles for Disney and the first two seasons of The Simpsons. Today I am best known as a film storyboard artist on shows such as: Terminator 2, Stargate, Thor, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and The Help, to more recently Jurassic World, The Revenant, Independence Day: Resurgence, Rampage and The Woman King.
