Righto, well here are my storyboards. First attempt at doing them, so I know I still have a reeeeeeeeeeally long way to go especially stylistically, and also I really had to force myself to start thinking about different angles etc, but didn't want to go too overboard at the same time. Another thing that I know I didn't do enough of is research - looking at billions of western trailers and stuff like that - although we didn't have heaps of time to do research in anyway. One thing I was pleased about was that I got a LOT faster at drawing up the boards by the end of the week so time wise it didn't take me too long to draw (although my very wise tutor did tell me that I still need to be more rough - which doesn't come naturally to me).
So if there is anyone out there who would care to give me some good old fashioned critical feedback I would love you for it! Especially because we have our assessment next week!
So as a little bit of a background - we were given the script and character designs. The script we were given was an actual one that my school used for a TV commercial. So it's just short and sweet, but quite a cool idea I thought. Cheesy, but cool. And what would life be like without a bit of cheese right? : )

So yup. Not as awesome as I would have wanted. Stylistically especially. But hey - first attempt and at least I know what I need to work on. Big thanks to my tutors who are amazing - Hat Lieberman for his fantabulous tutorials on storyboarding - and also Nancy Beiman's book 'Prepare to Board' which is invaluable on the subject.
One day, maybe, I will be almost as amazing as these people. : )
