Board to Film Comparison



Here is the storyboard to film comparison. I was impressed with how closely the director stuck to the boards I had worked on. In animation, the storyboards are translated very literally because you have complete control over the elements. But in live action, the storyboards are loose guidelines to get and overall feel of how a project will look. These shots match really closely to the boards that I had drawn out.

I enjoyed working on this project, the director was able to communicate exactly what his vision was and I was able to put that to paper in one draft. That rarely, if ever, happens. There is a saying that it shouldn't be called storyboarding, it should be called story re-boarding because you work and rework and rework things to death. This was one of those times when the channels of communication were open and uninterrupted.

It's cool to see that! You're right, they really stuck to your storyboards. My kids love the film. Peanut loves the candles and says, "hot!" (One of the few words he actually says.)

So interesting to see the comparison! By the way, I got a fund-raising letter from BYU yesterday and the letterhead was the torso of a man holding that thick lighted candle! It warmed my heart that you had something to do with that and I sent them some money! How are the other recipients of that letter to see the video? Is it out somewhere?

Glenn! You are amazing. Completely amazing. I'm so glad to see that you are doing so well, and I read on Scott and Shauna's blog that you graduated! Nice work! Way to keep busy right? :) I have that same tendency myself!
