While at ILM, I Directed one commercial show opener
for the Discovery Channel that was extremely effects-driven.
We created shots of trees being hit by lightning, elephants charging
and spiders jumping at the camera, lava moving beneath us,
and for the final shot, flew to Australia, shot 30 aboriginals
dancing around a fire and one was selected to wear a
NASA astronaut suit & helmet to appear to float in space.
Alex Laurant worked with me on these storyboard frames.
