The Thing - Journey From The Storyboard To The Screen!

By Aditya Savnal. Posted on July 08, 2015

Director John Carpenter is known for his distinctive body of work, the centerpiece of which is the cult classic horror film The Thing. The film which narrates the tale of a group of scientists, dealing with a shape shifting alien they encounter in the Antarctic, has been hailed as one of the best horror films ever.

What sets The Thing apart from other horror films is Carpenter's attention to detail. A video by Vashi Nedomansky compares the original storyboards by Mike Plogg and Mentor Huebner with Carpenter’s finished movie side by side. And it is amazing to note how Carpenter faithfully follows the storyboard.

Filmmaking is defined as a collaborative process and this video illustrates how amazing this collaboration can truly be.
