Comic Relief: Storyboarding & Blocking

To aid us in our recent Movie Trailer spoof of The Bourne Ultimatum, I used a simple program called Comic Life, which is already built into most new Macs and Macbooks. I used it to storyboard scenes so that we could reference them during the filming and know exactly how a shot was set up for the real movie. This was really helpful, especially when blocking fight sequences that have to be executed carefully to keep the actors safe. Below is a comparison of the storyboard (using images courtesy of the real Bourne trailer) and stills from our completed shot. The moment lasts for just a few seconds but with skillful editing and sound effects that moment is exciting! The Bourne Ultimatum spoof premieres at Dave and Melissa’s wedding, Sunday, September 30.
