Alfred Hitchcock’s Storyboards

by

Storyboards are planning tools, cartoon sketches that depict critical or pertinent scenes in animation, movies (and even amusement park rides). It’s an easy editing process for something that has yet to be filmed, but you already knew that, ya? Have you seen any? Check out these thumbnails.

    Wow, some amazing images. I didn’t realize that Alfred used storyboards for his movies, and this has given me food for thought from.a writing perspective. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    I like how the styles of sketching changed over the decades – pen and watercolor, charcoal, pen and marker.

    I worked at Disney Imagineering in the 80’s, and their story boards for new rides and movies were amazing full color acrylic paintings. I still do thumbnail sketches (paper dolls) occasionally and move them around for visual organization.
