A signed original production-used storyboard from the first movie in the epic George Lucas saga, Star Wars - Episode IV: A New Hope.
This storyboard came from a complete set created for the visual effects sequences, which included everything from miniature ships in the sky to the rotoscopic effects of lasers firing from the Death Star’s gun turrets.
This storyboard shows a formation of three Y-Wings flying down the Death Star trench – the foreground is occupied by one ship, while two more trail in the background. Beneath the image are the words, ‘One Y-Wing with two smaller at end of trench / Similar to shot 254 B. One ship only (others cutouts) / Faster speed. Lazers to ship’.
The storyboard is labelled as part of the “Gold” sequence and as shot “256”. This storyboard is printed on a sheet of yellow-coloured paper and is hole punched at the bottom from where it was grouped in sequence, forming a comprehensive shot by shot miniature version of the movie’s spectacular and ground-breaking effects. This piece has also been signed by the legendary veteran producer Robert Watts who also produced the Indiana Jones trilogy and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
The storyboard comes beautifully presented in a custom-built frame with laser-cut mount board featuring the classic movie title. The display remains in excellent condition.
Materials: Wood, Acrylic, Paper, Card, Ferrous Metals.
