Vincent and the end of the world (2016)
Directed by Christophe Van Rompaey.
Production: A Private View
The film’s trailer:
Shooting storyboard: car chase and special effects scenes.
The Hot Potato, feature film written, directed and produced by Tim Lewiston, Wardour Pictures and Novak Prod. Shot on location in UK and Belgium.
Synopsis: Based on real events. London’s East End 1969. One evening, a government research establishment explodes; an event that eventually leads the two friends, Kenny (Ray Winstone) and Danny (Jack Huston), being in possession of a large lump of Uranium… They crisscross Europe to find a buyer. Accompanied by Danny’s girl, the lovely Carole. They encounter a diverse cast of bizarre characters, all trying to steal the ‘Hot Potato’, but a deal agreed inside the Vatican has the co-conspirators confounding each other. The story twists and turns to an exciting and unexpected finale.
Only two sequences were storyboarded: the action scene with cars and another scene requiring matte and special effects. Drawn directly with ink on paper, trying to keep the energy of the first draft, the second scene is just sketched roughly – as no more than an outline was necessary. Click on frame center to view sequences in full screen.
Drawing the two scenes was fun.
Looking forward to seeing the movie.

Welcome to this new site showcasing cinematic pre production works.
Film Storyboards provides with production design and visual storytelling services for films, animation and cross media projects. I draw visuals for feature films, animation, advertising, games, live shows, events, theme parks, music videos, theatre and museums.
I like sequential illustration and storyboarding represents a considerable part of my experience as an illustrator. I started out working as a commercial storyboard artist in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in 1999.
From Saigon, I drew storyboards for Southeast Asia’s fast growing advertising and film scenes for the next two years. Since then, moving on, continued working as a freelancer for clients in Europe and globally.
Today, storyboarding amounts to about 1/3 of my practice, alongside illustration and art direction.
Currently based in Brussels, I travel to draw on location or work from my studio. Helping production houses, advertising agencies, animation companies and award-winning directors visualise, present and pitch their projects.
For example, a shooting storyboards can be helpful for a production to estimate the budget for special effects, that will inform VFX and SFX work and help the crew prepare and communicate complex action scenes. Storyboards sometimes involve conceptual illustrations and set design. A storyboard can also be a form of script development, an editing tool and even a marketing tool.
This site will host my portfolio, colour and black and white storyboards samples along with some notes about the works, preparatory drawings, roughs sketches etc.
In time, the site will also host storyboard templates, articles and resources about storyboarding. If you are looking for a layout template for a specific film format that you don’t see on that page, you will more likely find it on the templates shop.
This site is an ongoing project, wedding the forgotten art of old school storyboarding with contemporary digital illustration. Watch this space if you love storytelling for film, multimedia and concept art.
