We, at Outlines, have been waiting for over a year to showcase this work. I am referring to the numerous visual concepts and shooting boards we produced for the History Channel's epic new series, Knightfall.
Outlines was awarded the work so early in the process, that there was no production still photography or film footage shot yet. Many of the first visuals we created were derived from Googling cast member likenesses, visual information on the Templar Knights, and time period. You would think the job would get easier once we got actual reference shots from the show.
The concepts got harder. The creatives at A&E networks are consummate professionals, dedicated to raising the bar. Here's a taste of one of our creative pow-wows:
Art Director: "We need to see an idea for a shooting board."
Chris at Outlines: "Ok, what do you have in mind?"
AD: "In one continuous motion, the camera will open on a lead character in one setting... push through a portal... into another setting... to reveal other characters in a pivotal scene from the storyline."
Chris: "Ok, no problem. How many frames?"
You can't make this stuff up!
I now present the one frame of wonder!
