Pitch Boards

I recently drew a set of pitch boards for writer Producer D.J. MacHale's new live-action feature project. The images below are NOT from his project, but I made them in a similar style. 
The key is fast visualization of dramatic moments, quickly working out angles and indicating the action. Occasionally, a color treatment is made to communicate mood, or to liven up a static composition. These presentation images are more invested than animation boards, because their purpose is to engage an audience in a business meeting, quite different to an animator briefing or editorial session on an animated film. In pitch boards, every frame must deliver the promise of entertainment, whether in comedy, epic action or drama.
