Mood Board

As a musician Aryan helped to write an insightful documentary script capturing the essence of Hans Zimmer’s creating process with concise, understandable language. Then, I designed the mood board and the storyboard based on his script.

The mood board consists three major parts. The first part is the color theme of the documentary. Dark gray is the background color, while blue, yellow, and light gray are the highlighted color for reference titles and AE animations. The second part is the reference format. A few screen-caps of the clips we are going to use in the documentary are edited into the mood board. The two kinds of reference formats (movie & soundtrack) are presented to mimic the actual scenes in the documentary. The third part is the font choice. The main title font is Oswald, and the subtitle font is Myriadset-pro.

The storyboard indicates our selected movie clips, soundtrack, and the voice-over which we will record later in a rough order.
