    Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World Storyboards Original Art Group of 13 (20th Century Fox, c. 2003). "Run out those guns!" Jack Aubrey (played by Russell Crowe) bellows an order to return fire in an epic sea battle against The Acheron during the Napoleonic Wars. Here is an incredible sequence of original storyboards created for the film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World by the hand of the prolific David Russell. These kinetic drawings create clarity in what would otherwise be a confusing and chaotic scene. Beautifully composed for the sake of dynamic action, these storyboards also function to efficiently and economically aid the production of what would otherwise be a very expensive scene, streamlining the shooting and editing process so that as little expense is wasted as possible. Expertly crafted, the drawings are rendered in graphite and measure approximately 10.25" x 4.5" on 11.75" x 8.25" sheets of bond paper. They contain dialogue and production notes, and they show minoring handling and edge wear. The condition overall is Very Good. From the David Russell Collection.
