Storyboards and Hitchcock

Week 05

This video has a useful side by side comparison of the storyboards and the the final shower scene in Psycho (1960) (Alfred Hithcock and Saul Bass). It’s interesting to see how the storyboards capture the key facial expressions and actions of the scenes but then the final camera work takes extra shots to develop/take advantage of other compositions on set.

I found this other article with examples of storyboards used on Hitchcock films.

I liked the simple use of tone on these and how some of the backgrounds are impressionistic but still effective.
