-The Art of David Tuber-
I've directed stop-motion, traditional, and live-action. I like to get heavily involved with the preproduction creative process, focussing especially on tone. Once we get to production, I'm all about finding it together though collaboration. This is key, and ideas are always the answer. I truly love directing; from the endless problems to the even more endless inventive solutions.
I've always found great satisfaction in writing for television and film. My strengths lean towards comedy writing, sketch comedy, punch-up, etc. However, I also have a knack for finding the heart of a story, character, scene, and presenting it in a natural, unforced way. The stories I enjoy most as an audience and writer are, if I may be so cliche, the ones that make you laugh and make you cry.
*Scripts, sketches, punch-up, and other material available upon request.
I've been storyboarding for 18+ years on various animated and live-action television shows, features, commercials, and music videos. My strengths lean towards comedy, horror, and delivering a lot of heart. My favorite part of figuring out story is group collaboration. It's honestly one of my favorite things; to have a nugget of an idea made better by bouncing it off of the others in the room and crafting the story into something entertaining.

QuaranTV - Episode 1: "The New Normal"
At the tender age of four, David knew he wanted to pursue a life in animation. Growing up in the Chicago suburb of Wheeling, IL, he was obsessed with cartoons and drew constantly with the hopes to someday participate in the industry he adored. After years of artistic hardship and community involvement, he eventually graduated from Columbia College Chicago in 2005 (with a Major in Film & Television & Concentration in Traditional Animation; with Honors.) On December 17, 2005, he arrived in Los Angeles and found work at Shadowmachine Films on the hit stop-motion animated show “Robot Chicken”. Here he also befriended his comedy-writer idol, Dino Stamatopoulos and began working on Dino’s show, “Moral Orel”. Over time, Dino allowed David to write, direct and have other involvement in the show. In 2009, David became a director on Dino's 2nd stop-motion animated show, “Mary Shelley’s Frankehole”. When the show ended, David made his debut into film, storyboarding on "The LEGO Movie" under the guidance of his longtime friend and director, Chris McKay. This led to three more Lego films and more work at Warner Animation Group (WAG). During this time, David began sharpening his writing skills by writing for the LA-based sketch comedy troupe, “SecondHand Smog”, "Steed" and many other sketch groups. He also jumped back into television to work on the widely successful Netflix show, "Bojack Horseman".
Eventually, David and his wife Abigail moves from Los Angeles to Vancouver, British Columbia where they reside to this day.
