    Mission to Mars Storyboards Original Art Group of 35 Signed by Trevor Goring (Touchstone Pictures, c. 2000). These original storyboards for the Brian De Palma-directed film Mission to Mars showcase an incredible level of savvy in storytelling with minimal human subjects. Storyboard illustrators, in addition to drawing talent, must possess precise knowledge of set design, special effects, composition, lighting, storytelling, costume design, camera and, of course, dramatization. This is not only for narrative purposes but for economic ones, and the job of a storyboard artist is to guide the cinematography while also considering the limitations of film media. Artist Trevor Goring displays a deep understanding of these philosophies in this amazing group of 35 drawings on 12 pages. Depicting a disastrous storm at an astronaut base camp on Mars, these images have detailed camera-movement notes and pragmatic shots that make an otherwise chaotic scene narratively clear, dramatic and readable. Rendered in blue pencil on tracing paper taped to cartridge paper, these drawings measure 7" x 3" on 11" x 14" sheets. There are three drawings per sheet with one exception. The paper shows minor handling wear and the pages are spiral bound. Each sheet is signed by Trevor Goring, and the condition overall is Very Good. COA from Heritage Auctions.
