Secret of the Amazon Queen Storyboard Images!


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)

Hi Walter. During the interview with Greg you mentioned someone who worked with Harry Houdini in going after what they claimed were fraudulent mediums. I think you said it was a Presbyterian or Episcopalian minister. Could you tell me the name of the person? Thanks.

That person was Dr Walter Franklin Prince, who was rector of St John's Episcopal Church in San Bernardino in 1915. Prince played a role in the mystery surrounding the San Bernardino Working. I suspect his involvement with Houdini and Spiritualist investigations was either already in progress or began with his experience of what happened in San Bernardino in 1915.
