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, drawn from Luke's (Mark Hamill) perspective looking down the Death Star trench, shows the decisive moment when he fired his torpedoes, changing the course of the war.
The storyboard is labelled as part of the 'Luke' sequence and as shot '424'. A printed description beneath the image reads, 'Long shot trucking Luke's POV of torpedos shooting toward Death Star Surface. Torpedos disappear into surface, do not explode.' 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.
