Storyboard to Screen: Taste

Long before filming began on Circuit, Andrew drew up images of every shot in the movie. However, these were not your typical storyboards. Instead of turning the movie into a comic book (for lack of a better term) for the crew to use when filming, these images were more blueprints, and involved camera placement (often drawn right into the image), lighting breakdowns, and even specialized equipment needed to achieve the shot.

Here's a small snippet of Andrew's drawings, taken from the "taste" storyline. It revolves around the character Christine. Near the end of her story, she has an emotional breakdown in her bathroom before going to bed:

As you can see, the first panel stays fairly true to its movie counterparts. But the second panel is far different than the movie image that accompanies it, though it still follows the camera movements that Andrew originally drew.
