Godfather script

I watched the Godfather for the first time last week….AND THEN RE-WATCHED IT A WEEK LATER JUST TO ANALYSE THE STORYBOARDS. Damn pre-production. I’ve never re-watched anything in my life! My movie watching experience has been completely changed (mutter, mutter, grumble)

Then I went to http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Godfather.html and grabbed the opening segment of the script.

godfather script -opening sequence

So here is a rough broken down storyboard of  The Godfather opening sequence. I probably should have used the storyboards provided in class. Oh well, if good intentions count, I intend to analyse a storyboard a fortnight. Its actually very helpful. I wish I’d done it BEFORE i handed in the animatic.

The drawings are very rough but I see how the director has set up the whole scene in his head beforehand and then just staged cameras at different locations to slowly, slowly reveal the entire scene.
