Live action beat boards

 These are preliminary boards that were done for a live action spot for a sentimental plush toy with a minimal amount of direction.These represent an early stage in the process(no script,no story.)The purpose of this stage of boards is to present ideas for shots and set ups so a conversation about schedule budget and story can START.These kind of "beat" boards need to be done quickly and without refinement because with so little direction,there is no way to know what is going to be kept or discarded
