Slow me down storyboard

Werner Herzog once said that storyboards are ‘the instrument of the coward’. I suppose that makes me a coward - but a well-prepared coward, at least. I drew this storyboard in preparation for shooting Gregg Ibbotson’s ‘Slow Me Down’ music video. When it came to the shoot, the storyboard gave me a clear idea of what the essential shots were, which took the pressure off when it came to experimenting with different angles and additional coverage.
