From initial sketch to final production : a study of storyboards within feature film and animated film (English)
In this thesis I focus on the artistry and essential work, behind the scenes that storyboard artists have contributed to, since the early days of film history. The works I will focus on are the important phases of pre-planning of feature films and animated films. I theorize on the aspect of what makes a good story and how it is brought to life on the screen, as well as how the story is actually conveyed with this drawings. The hypothesis maintains the importance of storyboards, as well as defining their main purpose. Using a formalistic point of view and historical argumentation, I examine and compare five different directors´ use of storyboards and how their respective collaborative teams (i.e director of photography, production designer and story artists, editors etc) create each film´s particular nuances and cinematic expressions. The source materials used are works by Bill Krohn, Giuseppe Cristiano, Steven D. Katz and Robert Kapsis, amongst others. The films/DVDs for my research have consisted of numerous behind-the-scenes materials and storyboards that have been featured with these filmic references. My conclusion is that the subsequent cinematic expression in each work is already apparent in the early process. This is revealed sometimes in the sketchbook of the director, but most often in the important collaborative work of the whole production team. In this we discover aspects as to what makes an elaborate, filmic masterpiece, facts most often unknown to a normal cinema audience.
