Storyboards Logo (4K)

Some weeks ago, Diamond International Galleries put on the Web a series of original Ghostbusters sketches and storyboards for sale. This quite long list has, among some interesting and exclusive pictures also storyboards not available on DVD so I decided to put them here which they respective movie comparison for documentation.

Storyboard - The Firehouse Exploding (12K)

NOTES

This scene has been shot exactly as shown. Note also the details of the drawing that indicates that the storyboards should have been drawn after principal photography.

Movie - The Firehouse Exploding (5K)



Storyboard - The GBs find the Stairs (11K)

NOTES

This scene is almost identical. One of the 'buster is missing and the camera position is slightly nearer to the guys that in the storyboards.. Also notice the position of the guys, on the side instead of giving their front to the stairs.

Movie - The GBs find the Stairs (4K)



Storyboard - The GBs shoots at Slimer (11K)

NOTES

This time the shot is different. While the storyboard opt for a low-angle shot from the ground showing a 'buster foot in the movie the camera has been ported to shoulder level and the second 'buster on the left it totally invisible, we see only the stream of its Neutrona Wand.

Movie - The GBs shoots at Slimer (11K)



Storyboard - Dana & Luois on the Altair ready to be trasformed in Terror Dogs (11K)

NOTES

The difference here resides in the fact the two pedestal seems to be nearer one each other and the position of the characters are different from the final shooting. Notice that Louis still has the appearance of John Candy and that the clothes are not the ones finally used.

Movie - Dana & Luois on the Altair ready to be trasformed in Terror Dogs (4K)



Storyboard - Explosqion of light as Dana & Luois are trasformed in Terror Dogs (7K)

NOTES

While the angle is respected is the scene that changes this time. The GBs duck behind the wall during the explosion, almost touching it, while in the final shooting , the guys simply cover their eyes still standing near what is a column, which is smaller that it appear on the sketch.

Movie - Explosqion of light as Dana & Luois are trasformed in Terror Dogs (5K)



Storyboard - After the explosion (8K)

NOTES

This scene has been cut from final shooting. In the movie we see the TDogs using the same camera view as in the transforming sequence,The GBs are off camera. Then, it cut directly to "OK, she's a dog" line.

Movie - After the explosion (5K)



Storyboard - Stay Puft walking (10K)

NOTES

This footage is absent from the movie, instead we see people running all over the place, escaping from Stay Puft.

Movie - Stay Puft walking (6K)



Storyboard - Stay Puft climbing (8K)

NOTES

The climbing start scene is totally different. In The storyboards we see from the side Stay Puft climb, no church visible, nor its feet. In the movie,on the other hand, using a low angle,e Stay Puft step on the church to climb the Shandor Building. Probably the church idea came later seeing that the building was place aside church.

Movie -  Stay Puft climbing (4K)



Storyboard - Staypuft being shot by the GBs (7K)

NOTES

This is a replica from the storyboard.. There's a difference in camera position again, far away, but the shot is exactly as drawn There's fire on the sketch only shown on the next camera shot in the movie but I believe this is probably a liberty taken by the artist.

Movie - Staypuft being shot by the GBs (4K)



Storyboard - Stay Puft's hand  (8K)

NOTES

Here, the scen as some basic differences. Firstly, the GB originally were supposed to jump to the left, while the scene has been shot reversed. Also only ray is on screen when the hand land on the floor, there's two GB on the drawing.. It's possible that the picture as been reversed as done many time during the movie.

Movie - Stay Puft's hand  (4K)



Storyboards - Crossing the streams (8K)

NOTES

The Stay Puft appear to be position deeper in the background and smaller too. The GB are position slightly on the left while on the storyboard they are parallel to Staypuft's head.Finally the camera is ,again , closer to the guys than in the drawing.

Movie - Crossing the streams (5K)

 

Once the drawings have been sold I'll put their pics online for backup purposes. Meanwhile take a look at the rest of the collection at Diamond International Galleries.
