Grand Central Publishing is compiling Director Bong Joon Ho’s original sketches and storyboards for the Academy Award-winning movie Parasite to form a 304-page graphic novel. The book showcases his unusual process and the extensive planning that went into filming Parasite. The graphic novel will also have early concept drawings and photos from the set, which Grand Central says “take the reader even deeper into the vision that gave rise to this stunning cinematic achievement.” To see a bit of the journey from storyboarding to the final shot, film editor Vashi Nedomansky has uploaded a short video with storyboards from one of the opening scenes in comparison with the film. Fans of the movie will be excited to see how Director Bong “…storyboards the entire film himself before he rolls the camera. He does not shoot master shots or any coverage. He shoots just his storyboards,” as noted by Nedomansky. Parasite: A Graphic Novel in Storyboards will be available on May 19, 2020.
