THE THING – Storyboard to Film Comparison


The visuals of both the desolate Antarctic and the ever-morphing alien creatures in THE THING were envisioned long before the movie was shot. Extensive storyboards were drawn by artist Michael Ploog so that all the departments of the production were on the same page in their preparation for the shoot. This is nothing new…but the similarity between the storyboards and the final imagery shot by legendary DP Dean Cundey is staggering. Storyboards are often only a guide, but in this film they were so specifically rendered that they became gospel. The detail and artistry of Ploog’s work up front, allowed the crew to have clear and defined goals on those frigid shooting days in both Alaska and Canada.

75 Years Of Batman 512x1024 SR Geek Picks: 75 Years of Batmen, Fantastic Four Problems & More

Batman has got such a rich history that in the end it was really hard to choose just one era to pay tribute to one of the greatest characters in popular culture, so I’m paying tribute to as much of said history as I can! I decided to choose 75 Batmen each representing an important moment in Batman’s long career.

That’s all for today, folks! Be sure to check back tomorrow for more movie-related geekery.
