SVA Alumnus Warren Drummond on Working with Denzel Washington and Storyboarding 'Fences'

From The New York Times: “Denzel Washington calls me into his office. It’s time to start a discussion on the scene that I will storyboard. It was last spring on location in Pittsburgh, at the production office for 'Fences.' I was also privileged to have worked with Denzel on 'Antwone Fisher' (2002).

As a storyboard artist, my job is to visually tell a director’s concept of a film scene, frame by frame. I draw the close-ups, medium shots, and wide shots. I have drawn Stallone hanging from a helicopter on 'The Escape Plan'; the always cool Samuel L. Jackson running, shooting and fighting in the 'Shaft' reboot; Russell Crowe seeing imaginary friends and foes in 'A Beautiful Mind'; and drawn hyper-intelligent chimpanzees in 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes.'..."
