The COVID-19 Pandemic Storyboard project is a collaboration of independent storyboard artists to create a story with several purposes.

Episode 02, the PLAGUE DOCTOR reveals that what is shown in Episode 01 is not what really happened. Pandemonium and melee started at the bus stop, spreading to total disorder in the streets. The Police showed up but couldn’t handle the situation, so the National Guard was called in.

Episode 02 has Part 1 and Part 2.

A Facebook group called Frame By Frame Serials has been created as the central place to discuss, share, and manage the different storyboard collaboration projects.

See how Episode 02 Part 2 came together.

It started with Jeremy McHugh posting a frame on FB Group Frame Dump

Jeremy did a one-off, standalone, board with his own messages about COVID-19 and staying busy and safe.

Storyboards are meant to serve a story, and this one is no exception. It’s an awesome looking board, and I thought “what would the story be beyond the one board?”

It’d be a shame to have just one random board on the subject. For me here’s a good opportunity to create a sequence of storyboards to tell some aspect of this COVID-19 pandemic, and maybe more. This pandemic has enormously impacted our profession like many other professions, and as artists we want to (or more appropriately, have to) say something about it.

I decided to do the next frame of this “Episode” to see what it may look like. I posted it there as a reply to Jeremy’s post. Then Vince Mancuso decided to jump in and did a third frame and posted it.

From these 3 frames I decided to write the full script/shot list for the whole episode, what I call Episode 01. Guess what? We now have a story.

  • In Episode 02 Part 1, there is a total pandemonium and melee at the bus stop, instigated by DOC. This then results in total disorder in the streets. The Police can’t handle it and is quickly overwhelmed by the mob, so the National Guard is called in to restore order.
