Welcome to the Storyboard pages!
Click on the icons to enlarge the image and read a little about it. Click on the little 'boxes' icon just to the right of the little 'camera' icon above the image to enlarge it.
These Art galleries are a constant work in progress. I will be adding more images as well as writing more about them in the future. Please feel free to check back from time to time for updates.
There may be a little redundancy across the galleries as some images belong in more than one category.
Storyboarding is an art form unto itself that is not to be underestimated. It really is the first pass at the directing of the film, and can have a real influence on the way a film is conceived and shot. Storyboard artists make huge yet very silent contributions to cinema, and the good ones have an enormous knowledge of the history and craft of filmmaking. Often key visual narrative ideas are added by the board artist, and good directors are aware of this and encourage it. Bad and mediocre directors even depend on them to do their jobs for them! Yet notice that there is no place in the Oscars for 'Best Storyboards' or 'Best Illustrator' despite the massive input these artists have into the medium of cinema. Virtually any film ever made (that could afford a storyboard artist or an illustrator) has had it's genome distorted by the ideas from these talented artists. Many of your favorite scenes in your favorite films exist because an artist drew them onto a little rectangular box and the director said "Great! I love it"!
All summer blockbusters are heavily storyboarded as they involve a lot of action and effects, and everyone involved with the picture needs to have a copy of the boards so that everyone knows what they are doing. Often writers of scripts say very little about what goes on in a complex action set piece. These scenes are often created entirely by storyboard artists working in a vacuum with little or no input from their director. Many times the writers come in to the art department and see what the storyboard artists are doing, go back home, and incorporate what they have seen into the script. They get the credit, and they make a LOT more money. A LOT MORE.
Make you think?
But I digress.
Most of the boarding I have done has been for effects sequences due to my background in special makeup effects and a good basic knowledge of visual effects. Here are a few of them.
