“A Dangerous Game” Visual Development

As a final project for a cinematic storytelling class, I was assigned to work with other illustrators in the class to develop a trailer for a hypothetical film loosely based on a short story of our choosing. I collaborated with RISD illustrators Marcela Ramos, Jason Morales, and Kinwa Yu Chen to adapt Richard Connell’s 1924 short story, The Most Dangerous Game into a cinematic trailer. The process outlined below displays how our team developed the trailer through a number of stages including initial visual concepts, rough storyboards, color keys, and a finished animatic.
