Concept Art & Storyboards: Things I’m Thankful For.

November 26, 2010

My addiction to concept art and storyboards started at an early age, a very early age.  Whether it was concept art, storyboards, or character sketches, I couldn’t get enough of it.  They were sneak peaks into the creative processes of my favorite filmmakers.  They were glimpses (sometimes good, sometimes bad) at what “could have been.”  They made me appreciate what worked.  And, perhaps more importantly, taught me what didn’t.  Like I said, I couldn’t get enough of it.  I loved it.  But back then, with no internet or dvd extras, the goods were hard to come by.  Pretty much all I had were movie companion books and, being a kid, most of them were Christmas presents.  I recently went home to my parent’s (Thanksgiving!) and I dug up a few of these books, my favorites.  Amazingly, I find them just as fascinating now as I did so long ago…
