As promised, here are some storyboard images from pre-production on the SOTAQ feature film. I spent an afternoon with artist Yanis Zambeis yesterday and we started the long but thoroughly enjoyable process of creating the visual script for the film. For those who may not understand what a storyboard is, it is every shot of the film put down in a simple, somewhat crude, form on paper. The purpose is to be a blueprint for the visual action and photographic composition of the film. In other words, the art is not supposed to be amazing, otherwise it would take forever to do one! Some directors pay artists to do elaborate storyboards, others do the most messy stick figure storyboards you'll ever see. I'm somewhere in the middle.
Anyway, I want to share the production of SOTAQ as we go along, so enjoy these images for what they are... (They are not a complete series of shots -- I don't want to give TOO much away, LOL)
