Storyboards: Boardwalk Empire, season 4; (part4).

(click on images for scrutiny)







These boards come from episode 6 of season 4, "The North Star"; directed by Allen Coulter.
Allen reduced the drawings even further, absent the block toning I'd done for the boards of the previous episode.

Below, I wanted to include some frames of shots from this episode which were altered or cut, however which I kinda like as drawings...

Storyboards: Boardwalk Empire, season 4; (part 3)

These boards come from episode 5, "Black Sedan" season 4. Directed by Tim Van Patten.

After the experience of working with Tim, (also director of episode 1, where the boards previously posted, below, derive) I was encouraged by the latter to simplify the drawings. I cut the shading and rendering of the frames and supplemented a more graphic, comic-strip approach.  This was a happy bit of direction because the turnaround on these assignments was so fast, any labor saved was welcome.

Storyboards: Boardwalk Empire, season 4. (part 1)

(click on images for scrutiny)














It has been my personal and professional good fortune to have had the opportunity to storyboard for Tim Van Patten on Boardwalk Empire.  Tim approached me early into production on season 4 to do some boarding for Boardwalk.  I was then working as a scenic artist on the show, (and continued to until the end of the show's run this last Fall) when I was able to straddle the infrequent storyboard needs of season 4.

The storyboards published here are for scenes 1 and 2 of episode 1, New York Sour; directed by Tim Van Patten.
