    Independence Day Storyboards Original Art Group of 21 Signed by Trevor Goring (20th Century Fox, c. 1996). From the iconic scene in which a giant alien ship bursts through the clouds over New York City, here are 21 incredible storyboards from the hand of artist Trevor Goring. Signed by Goring himself, these 11 sheets build great suspense from depicting the terrifying size and majesty of the ship over the biggest city in America. Couple this with the zoom-in reaction shots from tech engineer David Levinson (played by Jeff Goldblum), and you have a scene that clearly establishes the ominous nature of the extraterrestrial visit. Showing plenty of savvy in the art of visual storytelling, Trevor Goring creates mood and narrative to guide the cinematography while also considering the practical and economic limitations of filmmaking. His knowledge of set design, special effects, composition, lighting, storytelling, costume design, camera and dramatization are all on full display here. These stunning drawings are rendered in black pencil on tracing paper taped to cartridge paper, and the sheets are spiral bound. There are two drawings per page with the exception of the last page, and they all measure 6.75" x 3" on the 11" x 14" sheets. Each sheet is signed by Trevor Goring. The paper shows minor handling and edge wear with occasional light smudging, and the overall condition is Very Good. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
