Storyboards are Frakking Cool

Ok, so I know the title says it all, but I’m going to keep going anyway. These storyboards are cool because 1. I say so. 2. They are done in pencil, and are one of a kind! 3. I frakking say so, did I say that yet? 4. These storyboards are of Anders setting up a makeshift explosive detonator in an underground carpark, just waiting for unsuspecting Cylons to walk in.
There are nine pages of this set of storyboards (There are more storyboards in the ebay auction, and a few more in the store, go look!!) and I’m going to describe a few for you guys, just incase looking at the pictures isnt cool enough. So on page two we have a very intense looking pencil Anders setting this detonator line to a battery, and then running like hell to cover. Thankfully, incase you cant tell that from the picture, there is a small caption of “Anders sets bomb” to let you know. Those artists were smart!
Moving on we have Anders doing sneeky eye through a car window as a Cylon walks through the carpark. We again have awesome narration by the Artists with, “Centurion moves behind car” written below the picture. The Centurion then moves from behind the car and looks around, Oh crap, he sees the bomb! He walks his CGI self over to the bomb and leans down to inspect the fuse.
The Cylon, being all advanced and everything, takes time to note the almost burned out cigarette…right before it blows him straight to Cylon hell. I will give a half point back to him though, he was distracted by the bomb that would almost certainly kill him by Anders cocking his gun, which would probably dent his armor (or you know, make it dirty, scratches!) and not harm him at all. That Cylon superbrain was really slacking that day. Look at this guy, he’s going for the terminator look, and then..
