Explore the beauty and complexity of moviemaking through sketches, storyboards, and designs that illuminate the production of motion pictures from the silent era to the present day in this new exhibition, Drawing the Motion Picture: Production Art and Storyboards, from the Harry Ransom Center. Rare concept paintings, set designs, storyboards, scripts, film stills, correspondence, and more tell a visual story of the production of your favorite films, bringing a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the creative process of filmmaking.
Behind-the-scenes stories of some of the biggest films in more than 100 years of cinema history are revealed through the artworks and designs that shaped their final form. See production art associated with iconic movies like Rebel Without a Cause, Raging Bull, Top Gun, Apollo 13, and Lawrence of Arabia, many connected with innovative directors like Alfred Hitchcock, David Lean, Mike Nichols, Michael Powell, Nicholas Ray, Martin Scorsese, Stephen Spielberg, King Vidor, and more.
This exhibition draws from the Center's archival film holdings and is for film lovers and those who want to learn more about the most memorable scenes in classic films through an array of archival objects—many never before seen in an exhibition.
