land of the dead arrive

i found these beat boards whilst having a hard drive clear out . they were drawn to present ideas for the sequence when the land of the dead arrive in the land of the living during the wedding party banquet .some didn't make it into the final film . i think it was a pity that Barkis never got to eat a slice of maggoty wedding cake !

I'm really impressed with your stuff man. You have so many talents all wrapped up into one. You can really tell you spent a lot of thought and effort into making each sketch/piece into it's own idea. What can I say man, I really enjoy your work. I will bookmark your blog and make sure I keep comin' back for more. Thanks for the coffee breaks in the morning, REALLY fun stuff.

Oh great to see these Dean, I had a go at some gags for this seq. too. Did you do beat boards for any other scenes?

Hans said...

Wow, those are great! Is it a combination of pencil and photoshop? Wish I found stuff like that everytime I cleared out my computer;)

Great work,

Hans

Dean Roberts said...

yup pencil and ps - i can't remember whether i did any other beat boards like these - as you know matt we did a shit load of drawing on that short 74 minute film! if i find any more i'll post them - i've only got a 40 gig hard drive and i've filled it with my work over the past few years .
i agree with smook - the crow pic is my own fav of these .
thanks for looking guys
