A movies storyboard is the crucial stage when the words of the screenplay becomes a visual narrative; its often the source of the iconic imagery of the finished movie, and it is always a key point in the interaction of screenwriter, director, producer and art director. For the first time, the history of this vital art form is told in the way it deserves. A host of storyboards - ranging from Terry Gilliam's energetic sketches, to the lush painted artwork that defined Gone With The Wind - reveal how the directors vision is defined before the cameras start to roll. A must for all serious fans and students of film, this book tells the story of cinema as it has never been told before.
