Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Production-Used Storyboard - Mother Ship Emerges Behind Devils Tower

Stock #76650

”If everything's ready here on the Dark Side of the Moon... play the five tones.”

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 one main frame depicting the alien mothership emerging from behind Devil’s Tower.

Printed in black and white, the storyboard features the notes ’Celestial milk FX’ at the top right of the image. The top right corner of the page has been marked as ‘M-2A’.

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.
