The Gravitas

These are some frames from my last storyboarding project. We had to make a commercial for a smartcar called the "Gravitas." The idea was that this smart car is invincible- and in my case, fuel efficient AND able to defeat two very large monster trucks.

In the story, the monster truck moderators (who look astonishingly like Rhett and Link) announce the start of the 2008 Monster Truck Jam. Smartcar driver is lost and refers to his GPS, which leads him straight into the arena. Here is where I left out posting a few frames, but what happens is the GPS tells Smartcar driver to turn left and he proceeds to roll right over the first monster truck. He follows the GPS, rolls over the second monster truck and is directed out of the arena.
Beauty shot.

If that doesn't make you want to buy a really heavy Smartcar, I don't know what will.

I had a lot of fun with this project. I had never used Prismacolor markers before, and aside from spending 40$ for 12 markers, I thought it was great.

P.S. how about that tagline?

P.P.S nobody noticed that the the car in the third frame is vacant. Thank goodness.
