The Mystery Science Theater 3000 - The Return, Season Cold Open and title sequence was one of the most intense parts of pre-production, and once we understood it, all the visual and tonal groundwork was laid for the rest of the season. 
Getting Joel's vision right involved establishing background story and tone with a rather complex narrative while showcasing all the characters and locations integral to the season. It sampled a little of every part of the show, including the models built and shot by Stoopid Buddy Stoodies. 
I contributed to early story development, shot planning, and maintaining visual continuity...  I also had the pleasure of working with the talented Joshua Pruett in development of boards and animatic sequence.
