Watch Iconic Film Scenes Paired With Their Original Storyboards

Lucasfilm / Lucasfilm

Some of cinema's most memorable scenes are the ones that make the audience feel as though they're part of the action. The effect seems effortless, but getting there requires a whole lot of work behind-the-scenes. To provide a better look at the creative processes behind three iconic films, the Vimeo channel Glass Distortion has edited together several finished movie scenes with their original scripts and storyboards.

For the project the editor chose the 1980 Star Wars sequel The Empire Strikes Back and two modern classics, The Dark Knight (2008) and No Country for Old Men (2007). Even if you've watched these scenes a dozen times each, seeing them alongside their storyboard art adds a whole new dimension. Check out the comparisons below.
