Storyboards Part 4

ALL STORYBOARDS USED WITH PERMISSION BY WONDERWORTHY PRODUCTIONS

So, in between the two versions of the horror film I was working on, I took on a small storyboarding gig for a film called A PROMISE, a co-production between WONDERWORTHY FILMS, REINDEER PRODUCTIONS LLC and DALUNDA PRODUCTIONS. I was again brought in very early in the pre-production and did some boards to establish some basic visual language for the film and that was the end of my involvement. A pretty straight forward gig with a shot list and little art direction. Cast and locations hadn't been worked out at this point either but a good change of pace to work on an uplifting film right after a horror flick.

These sequences were from all over the script and aren't necessarily in chronological order from the film.













Just started work on storyboards for a new horror feature that's being shopped around, hope to post them in the future but for now that's all I can say (well except that it's already loads of fun!)

So, here's the last sequence I wound up working on (never got to the whole teenager campfire massacre part, but alas). As before there were some pretty big changes from THE SILENT DARKNESS script to the KISS OF EVIL one, most notably a shift in where the most visual effects would be used in which part of the sequence. THE SILENT DARKNESS had most of them upfront, while the KISS OF EVIL version saved most of them for the hallway pursuit. Again, a real blast to work on!

Here's THE SILENT DARKNESS version.










And now, the KISS OF EVIL version. This one goes a bit further. 















One more set of boards coming up from a completely different film but it's been fun to revisit these. A big shout out to David for the art direction and the film's writer, producer and director Don Ranow!

The next sequence that I worked on involved the protagonist, now an adult, as she's haunted by the witch in the mirror. There were zero changes to this sequence in both versions of the script.









Still even more to come!

Storyboards The Silent Darkness to Kiss of Evil

So, a few years ago I wound up working on a feature horror film called the THE SILENT DARKNESS and then later the title was changed to KISS OF EVIL. I was brought on pretty early on the production by my pal, David Harland Rousseau, who was serving as the art director and lead production artist. Eventually funding and the distribution deal fell through but it was a lot of fun to work on.

I'll be posting several scenes from both versions of the film, starting with the opening sequence in an old witch's cave.

First, THE SILENT DARKNESS version, the budget was bigger at this point as was the cast
























And now, the KISS OF EVIL version, the budget was trimmed and the story was heavily streamlined. The basic events stay the same however.














More sequences to come!
