    Real Steel Storyboards Original Art Group of 103 Signed by Trevor Goring (Touchstone Pictures, c. 2011). From the first action sequence of the robot boxing film Real Steel, here is an incredible full scene of a whopping 103 original storyboard drawings on 35 sheets of vellum tracing paper. An expertly executed showcase of wordless visual narrative from artist Trevor Goring, this unbelievable set of images could stand alone as a short, silent graphic novel. Without dialogue or camera notes, it establishes the main character Charlie Kenton and creates a spectacular visual guide for director Shawn Levy. This early concept of the scene excitingly contains subtle differences to the final product, particularly in that Charlie is depicted as more of a sympathetic character than his showboating, flirtatious and distracted film counterpart played by Hugh Jackman. Additionally, Charlie's robot is named Supernova here instead of Ambush, and the bull's name is Zeus, which would be the name of the rival champion robot in the film. These incredible drawings are rendered entirely in blue pencil with black pencil making up the hand-drawn borders. Additionally, the first page is signed by Trevor Goring and the signature is dated 2020. The size of each drawing is approximately 5.75" x 2.5", and there are three drawings per 9" x 12" sheet (the last sheet contains one drawing.) The sheets show mild handling and edge wear, and some have small folds in corners. Overall the condition is Very Good. COA from Heritage Auctions.
