Now that the video was released a couple of days ago, I won’t be in violation of my NDA for sharing the storyboards I did for RCA’s music video of G-Eazy & Jeremiah’s “Saw it Coming” off the ‘Ghostbusters’ Motion Picture Soundtrack. Here’s the video in its released form.
So I was called at the last minute to a location meeting in L.A. a couple of weeks ago to scout out the indoor swap-meet where the video would be shot. Afterwards I sat down with the director to review the script. They needed the boards by around 6PM the next evening. Not knowing how long it would take, I decided to begin working as soon as I got home, so I had the wife put on a pot of coffee and I began drawing through the night. Well, I kept drawing nonstop until just past 6PM the next evening, so I really rushed the final boards, and it shows. Naturally, I passed out after pulling an all-nighter 18 hour drawing marathon.
While some things I’ve storyboarded in the past remained pretty true to the boards, many things in this video were different, but the director, Taylor Cohen, is a creative guy and probably had a lot of ideas for pickup shots while shooting and during post-production.
Here are the storyboards I did for comparison to the final video. Keep in mind that these are meant for production, not public presentation, so they’re rough.
