~ UFOs and Storyboards ~

Full storyboard PFD can be found here. The thumbnailing and tying-down process to how I usually do boards, or flesh out scenes and short sequences. Panels read from left to right, with additional poses plugging inbetween at various points.

An additional page featuring the opening shot; another can be found here. The rest of the boards and story are in the PDF.

There are more development pages than here, but these are the most presentable. Anyone who takes a look at the full version can also see where I added some Photoshop finesse (relatively speaking) in terms of grey tones, additional poses, or camera work.

Probably not the most efficient time-wise to work in traditional means (Colerase and Moleskine), but I like the end result better, in linework, composition, and generally being able to see outside the frame, or further forward or behind several scenes. There's something to be said about being able to compare shot-for-shot at a single glance on an actual physical page sitting in front of you. There's also something to be said about not being rushed with a stylus on a canvas the equivalent of waxed ice.

Plenty of Close Encounters, ET, Super 8, and general UFO folklore fueling the above.
