I was very happy to be asked by Plastic Wax (Australia) to contribute art to develop the launch trailer for Sid Meyer's Civilisation VI. In order to get the camera movement right the actual storyboards went through several iterations so we had to contend with very rough thumbnails due the tight production schedule. Here are the much better looking key frames (though still only digitally shaded pencils) I developed to give the animation dept. a better impression on details and atmosphere. Storyboard artists are often the first step of visualisation after the script and we can have an enormous impact on the production influencing not only camera set-up and movement but also design and lighting. Check out the final trailer. Again the brilliant team at Plastic Wax made me look good. :)
