Storyboarding and Script Development


For me, one of the most exciting parts of making a film is that getting that initial flash of inspiration, finding an original idea and shaping it into a story.

The script for Amiri & Aroha went through countless revisions right up to the final draft. One way in which I visually developed the story was to get lots of photographs and arrange them into a storyboard, to give a flavour of how the film would look.

Today’s podcast video shows an animated storyboard, with some of the artwork from my original pitch and drafts for the story.
