Movie Storyboards showcases a collection of storyboards in a range of styles, including some of cinema's greatest moments and spanning decades of film history. This collection includes the work of pioneers such as William Cameron Menzies (Gone With the Wind), Saul Bass (Psycho, Spartacus), and Salvador Dalí (Spellbound), as well as contemporaries such as Raúl Monge (Pan's Labyrinth) and Jane Clark (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire). Many are seen here for the first time, and all are accompanied by insights into the movies featured, their directors, and, of course, the storyboard artists.

The unsung heroes of film, storyboard artists are the first to give vision to a screenplay, translating words on the page into shots for the screen. Artists consider composition, movement, camera angles, special effects, and pacing while creating these beautifully illustrated sequences for films we now know and love. This book includes innovative artists and never before published storyboards from decades of film history, starting from Gone with the Wind in 1935. Films include:
