11 Aug-29 Nov. This joint exhibition presented by Kunsthalle Emden and the Berlin Museum for Film and Television highlights the role of cinematic storyboards, with a varied display including monochrome works in graphite and Indian ink, and brightly-coloured illustrations in pencil and pen, chalk and watercolour.
The museum exhibits each drawing alongside its corresponding completed film sequence. As the identity of many illustrators of classic animated movies remains unknown, exhibition organisers believed it was high time the storyboard medium received the recognition it deserves.
Thought to have been invented at Walt Disney Studios, by the late 1930s the medium had become widely used in mainstream Hollywood film production.
