A group of 16 hand drawn pen and ink storyboards (30.0 x 21.5 cm 2 slightly smaller) used in the production of Superman III. The storyboard is the medium productions use to pre-visualise the movie shot by shot. It starts with a hand drawn pen and ink or pencil original drawn by a storyboard artist under the guidance of the director, once completed, it is copied for each Head of Department for their reference. Although copies are created for the production department heads the storyboards offered by A Little Piece of History are original pen and ink storyboards.
These storyboards were used to help visualise the action taking place during scenes in the movie. Condition is well used, the storyboard’s display signs of wear including discoloured tape, slight rips and pin marks on the corners. The set remains overall in good condition.
Storyboards are not in sequence to one scene, but make up sections of the movie. Three storyboards (21, 22, 26) are from opening scene when superman rescues a man from a car. One storyboard (33) is when superman is hit by the missile fired by Vera. Ten 50, 58-60, 64, 68 – 72) are from inside Ross’s cave were he has built the super computer. Two (122, 123) are from the scene when Vera is consumed by the super computer, these are done with hand drawn overlays.
Storyboards come with the original COA from the Prop Store of London
