The storyboard is animated in sequence to provide the production team with a sense of tone, atmosphere, and pacing. The visualization also helped me to better comprehend key moments in the film.
The Inspector chapter is not included in this visualization.
To demonstrate a particular shot, I created a previsualization (a 3D preview rendering) to help illustrate my intentions. The shot required a dolly to push diagonally while the subject turned around. The effect would be a rapid shifting background contrasted to the subject counter movements. The desire was to create a sense of panic and stress by using drastic movements.
The door sequence, in the Jacov chapter, was a particular sequence I felt necessary to make a previsualization for. I wanted to better understand the shot arrangements and pacing. I also saw the need to illustrate my intentions to our DOP (director of photography), to make things clear from the onset.
The shots were very stylized and needed testing before going into production.
