a while ago I collected all the material I have about STORYBOARD and prepared a lecture with all those hundreds of images. the most interesting part in the area of live action film are the boards prepared for ALFRED HITCHCOCK, at least I found so many complete sequences. here is the first one from NORTH BY NORTHWEST, a comparison of the storyboard and the final scenes in the film. there will be some more soon from THE BIRDS.

Nice to see those storyboards back to back with the frame enlargements. Hitchcock is still one of my all-time favorite directors. I had the pleasure of presenting “North by Northwest” in a cinema last year. There’s nothing like seeing this on the big screen. At times, you could have heard a pin drop – a situation not so common anymore in movie theaters these days.
By the way, I’m from Switzerland, probably also not one of the countries you have never heard of 😉
Anyway, I’m one of the people who – until this blog arrived – always kept looking for your “Animation Treasures” hoping they would some day mysteriously re-appear online.

A difference that pleases me, is like he put the horizon over the actor shoulders . We can see a lot more of floor, there is more solitude, a more deserted scene.

These are amazing! Love the way it is laid out so we can compare the two. Wow. How cool is this!!!
