Gene
Short Film
Giant Leap Productions
Dir. Nicholas Marc Padley
Gene is a short thriller written and Directed by Nicholas Marc Padley, based on a short story by Emma Wise, who also stars in the film. As well as producing Storyboards, I also did an early poster for the film, digitally painted using photography of the two leads as reference.
Both the poster and a sample of Storyboard to screen comparisons are presented below, featuring some of the Storyboard panels I produced and their corresponding shots from the final film. It's always interesting to see how the boards match-up to what's on screen.
Whether they are faithfully realized or differ slightly (or even completely), it shows the importance and function of a Storyboard. In fact, when the film differs from the Storyboard, for example in shot composition or even camera placement, it shows how much freedom a Storyboard grants the Director, the Director of Photography and the crew.
