About Graham:

“Drawing storyboards is a richly rewarding experience for me. I visualise the written word from the script into cinematic storyboards. It is above all a communication tool of the Director`s vision for the production in terms of realising the narrative, composition/framing, lenses, lighting, stunts and vfx requirements. The drawings freeze lines, shapes light and visualises what the script can’t describe in words.”
