Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Production-Used Storyboard - Jillian Is Scared By Electronic Surges

Stock #76646

”They asked me if I'd seen any strangers in the neighborhood.”

A framed, production used storyboard copy from Steven Spielberg's sci-fi classic, Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Cableman Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) has a close encounter one night, witnessing UFOs flying through the sky. Refusing to believe an explanation for what he saw, Roy goes on a mission to pursue the truth and follow clues to meet visitors from the cosmos.

This storyboard was used for the film's extensive special effects and shows three images. The main frame depicts Jillian and her son Barry cowering in the lounge as the three UFOs descend. In the next frames the vacuum switches on by itself, while the third shows Jillian’s terrified and Barry’s excited reactions.

Printed in black and white, the storyboard features summary notes above each frame. Above the main image are the words ‘Jillian walks back & falls in chair. Lights go out. TV blares on’. The second has the note ‘Insert – Vacuum cleaner light pops on’. Under the third image are the words, ‘Reaction shot – Jillian terrified, Barry happy.’

The page has been hole punched at the top, where it was grouped in a sequence, forming a comprehensive shot-by-shot version of the film's special effects. The storyboard comes beautifully presented in a custom built framed display with laser-cut mount board featuring the classic movie title.

Materials: Paper, Card, Wood, Acrylic, Ferrous Metals.
