Storyboards – Red Shirt Revue

This episode was really complicated, with lots of props, settings, and special greenscreen tricks. And when it came to the alien chest pop, we were only going to be able to do it once. So I wanted to ensure we knew exactly what each shot would look like. This time I used color, because in the last episode I’d storyboarded (Secondary Sexual Characteristics) I only used pencils, and it was sort of hard to tell what was going on.

Compare these shots to the final episode. What’s the same, and what’s different? Give your reasoning for why you think each choice was made.
