The Creators Project: Ridley Scott On The Importance Of Storyboarding

The Creators Project: Ridley Scott On The Importance Of Storyboarding

The director of blockbusters like Alien and Blade Runner and the upcoming summer film Prometheus discusses the importance of creating a coherent narrative in his craft.

Creators Project

In case you haven’t been on the internet for the last three months, Ridley Scott‘s got a new film coming out. It’s called Prometheus and it’s something of a prequel to Alien, taking its departure from the unanswered question of who was the Space Jockey on the derelict spaceship in Alien?

With the aforementioned AlienBlade RunnerThelma & LouiseLegend, and, er, 1492: Conquest of Paradise under his belt as director, Scott’s a man who knows a thing or two about the art of the moving image. But the moving image doesn’t start life moving, it starts as an idea, maybe a drunken one, then goes through the many stages of production. And one of those is storyboarding, a kind of pre-film comic strip that maps out scenes and articulates the filming ahead.

Above you’ll find Ridley waxing lyrical about the act of creation and how storyboarding is an essential part of this. And below you’ll find the trailer for Prometheus, if you’re that person who hasn’t been online for three months. Welcome back.
