Here’s another one of my famous dancing storyboards. I don’t quite know how I always seem to be drawing choreographed dances. Ironically, I’m a terrible dancer. Oh well.
These storyboards are for a kinda companion marketed synergistic branding tie-in cross promotional effort between E! channel and Degree (the antiperspirant), starring that Famous Choreographer you recognize from “Making the Band,” Laurieann Gibson and Kat Graham, fairly fresh celeb actress/dancer/singer.
In them, we depict our Choreographer, starting her day early, alone, brainstorming her dance routine for the Grammys and scribbling notes, then tuning and fine-tuning the routine by drilling with her dancers, and then our Actress talent arrives to interview her and pick up a few pointers on how to stay cool… under pressure! I’m sure Degree brand deodorant helps too.
It’s kinda shot like a documentary, so we have a lot of quick cuts and candid shots. This is my specialty by now. Bear in mind, these are shooting boards for a 60 second commercial, and I had 8 hours to draw them. Here’s the boards:
Here’s the final spot.
Not bad. I wish somebody told me that Laurieann cut her hair so short. And it seems that they cut a section of our script which had Laurieann teaching Kat a dance move. Otherwise, fairly close.
Before I go- for any producers out there- typical fast turnaround on a :60 commercial is TWO days, not ONE, so please budget accordingly 🙂
See ya next week!
