STORYBOARD ARTIST and ILLUSTRATOR.
Tolley has worked on many feature films and countless TV commercials in Australia and around the world. Tolley is now based in Switzerland and available anywhere.
In 2017 Tolley spent nearly four months on the Gold Coast at Warner Bros Movie World in Queensland storyboarding AQUAMAN, where he worked alongside LA’s best and brightest Storyboard Artists.
In 2018, Tolley drew Rachel Griffiths’ Ride Like A Girl; also the Australian remake of Angel Of Mine, starring Noomi Rapace; and The Whistle Blower, a joint production between Australia and China.
He has been to New Zealand to draw storyboards on The MEG, starring Jason Statham, and also storyboarded a number of sequences across The Leftovers series.
Prior to that he learned some heartbreaking ANZAC stories whilst drawing Russell Crowe’s THE WATER DIVINER. He was Senior Storyboard Artist on I, FRANKENSTEIN, Queen Of The Damned, Kangaroo Jack, Darkness Falls, THE CAVE, An American Haunting (Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek), ROGUE (by the makers of Wolf Creek) and the renowned horror film, The Loved Ones.
TV Mini Series:
Tolley has drawn storyboards for Romper Stomper (Stan), The Nowhere Boys Series 1 and 2 (ABC); Jack Irish Series 1 and 2 (ABC); House Husbands (Ch 7),
Underbelly “Squizzy” (Ch 9), and the Gallipoli TV Mini Series, to name a few.
Tolley speaks intermediate German (aber immer besser) and is completely mobile, having worked in Auckland, Prague, Romania, China, Denmark and even from a catamaran off the Fijian Islands(!) drawing directly into a Surface Book using Adobe CC, taking briefs and delivering work online.
Tolley periodically lectured in Storyboarding and Perspective Drawing (wissenschaftliches Zeichnen*) to Post Graduate students at Melbourne University’s VCA School of Performing Arts in the Production Design Department with a focus on Drawing for Film.
