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 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 & 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 & the crew.
The images displayed below contain elements of violence and horror
