Storyboarding is an under-appreciated art. In some cases, like Mad Max, storyboards illustrate every scene of a movie before there’s even an existing script.
And just like when you read a book or comic before seeing its on-screen adaptation, it’s super cool to look at the final product
of a show or movie next to the storyboards that were drawn up to bring it to life. io9 released storyboards for the (arguably) most epic moment of Game of Thrones season 5. It’s 1: is such a cool comparison with the final scene and 2: looks like the best work assignment ever. Because dragons.
Check out the storyboards compared to the final product below! And jump over to io9 to see more storyboards of the same scene!
