Surely you recognize this:

Your production is lacking structure and security to plan

Every department is on a different level of information

The production schedule is tight and shootings days are limited

You want to make the best film possible and are looking for a way to go through all the options before production even started, but don’t know how yet

Crude moodboards don’t present your ideas in the right way and cause misunderstandings

You are tired of the crew waiting for a decision to be made

Workflow

1. Initial approach

You make an appointment for the briefing- either per phone, via my website or by e-mail. We will arrange a date for the preliminary meeting.

2. Briefing/offer

In the briefing we discuss the timeframe and the deadline for the product. Based on this information I will make you a preliminary offer.

3. Conception phase

Together with the director, the DOP or the producer we talk about the film, the series or the commercial.

4. Thumbnailing

The pictures will be made in thumbnail-form first. Based on these sketches you give me the green light.

5. Finished artwork

The sketches will be transformed into the final drawings.

6. Delivery

The storyboards will be send to you in your preferred file- or printing format.

Client voices

Thanks to Erik’s storyboards I was able to design and plan the most complex sequences far in advance.
Customers were convinced by the visual strength of Erik’s work.

For pitch-meetings it was a thousand times more helpful than a simple presentation of pictures from the web. Therefore I won a pitch at an unknown agency for two commercials shwon at the cinema, leaving even established agencies behind us. I am always looking forward to work with Erik again.
